Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corp. managed an increase in sales during the third quarter, but same-store sales didn’t match the levels of last year’s quarter.
In the three months ended Feb. 28, the Burlington, N.J.-based outerwear and apparel off-pricer, acquired and taken private by Bain Capital Partners for $2.1 billion in 2006, recorded net sales from continuing operations of $1.02 billion, up 3.5 percent from the $987.1 million registered in the year-ago quarter. On a same-store basis, sales receded 2.3 percent.
