Sections of the Hi-Lake Shopping Center that burned down in the unrest following the murder of George Floyd are being rebuilt. Burlington Stores will open a new store at Hi-Lake Shopping Center (2124 E. Lake St.) in Minneapolis this fall, bringing the total number of locations in the state to 11.
"We are very excited to welcome Burlington to the newly rebuilt Hi-Lake Shopping Center," stated David Wellington, executive vice president of Wellington Management, which owns the property. "The whole Burlington team has been remarkably steadfast in their determination these past 18 months to bring a high quality retail environment to an important anchor in our community.
"We appreciate the partnership and patience Burlington and all of our neighbors have shown as we have worked through the complicated rebuilding efforts and look forward to re-opening the entire center in the coming weeks."
Additional tenants will be moving into Hi-Lake Shopping Center and opening their spaces back up in the rebuilt portions over the next few months.
Burlington’s new location will feature an updated, clean design making it easy for customers to navigate. The company’s stores offer an extensive selection of in-season, fashion-focused merchandise at up to 60% off other retailers' prices, including women’s ready-to-wear apparel, menswear, youth apparel, baby, beauty, footwear, accessories, home, toys, gifts and coats.
Additionally, Burlington Stores’ layaway program, available in most store locations, is offered all year-round. Customers can place items on layaway at checkout, come back to pay for it later and love their new purchase forever.
