Retail News: Burlington moving into two former Best Buy locations

Permits were first filed on the 290 location pictured here, which logically should open first.

Your best buys are always at Burlington, may not be the new slogan painted above the door, but it would be apt. Off-price retailer Burlington (Coat Factory) has recently made moves on two former Best Buy properties in the Houston area. The stores at 13238 Northwest Fwy, Houston, TX 77040 and 24230 Commercial Dr. Rosenberg, TX 77470 closed in 2021 and 2022, respectively, both part of a larger restructuring Best Buy has undertaken over the past two years. The 290 location is likely meant to make up for the closure of a longstanding location at 12005 Northwest Fwy, Houston, TX 77092. This store was one of many former Kmart/Venture locations purchased after their bankruptcy. This location was “moved” to a new shopping center at 4518 Dacoma St, Houston, TX 77092, in 2021. The new location further up 290 will help to reestablish a presence in the Fairbanks area. As for the Rosenberg store, this will be Burlington’s first store in the area. The closest current location is in Sugar Land.


  1. I don’t know why Best Buy stores are closing but the by my home is understaffed and not as good as it used to be
