THE BRONX - The Burlington Coat Factory chain is opening a store at Webster Avenue and Fordham Road in the Bronx.

The 70,000­-square-foot space used to be occupied by a children's department store called Cookie's Kids. The department store closed last week, laying off 124 workers.

Burlington representatives say the branch will feature merchandise for the whole family at discounted prices. The company also says the new location will bring 100 jobs to the Bronx.

The Fordham Road Business Improvement District believes the new store will provide a needed economic boost to the area.
