FORDHAM - Bronx residents can now satisfy their fashion itch with the opening of the new Burlington Coat Factory in Fordham.

In addition to the merchandise brought into the area, the new store also brought with it 150 jobs, most of which have gone to Bronx residents.

Burlington officials say they are very committed to philanthropic causes in the Bronx and have already donated a truck of clothes to the organization Bronx Works.

The new store opened in the same location as Cookies department store. When that store closed, 124 people lost their jobs.
