NEW YORK — Women in Massachusetts who shop the off-price apparel chains soon will have fewer options.
Burlington Coat Factory is getting ready to shutter its seven-unit Decelle chain. What began as a small factory selling apparel for women and children eventually turned into a small retail chain offering irregulars and closeout merchandise. The founder, William J. Frawley Jr., died in April at the age of 81. He retired from the business after selling the chain to Burlington Coat in 1994.
