Burlington Book Buddies Program


When I think of Burlington, I think of the number of things I’ve bought for my kids at a steal. (Clothes and baby shoes feature on top of that list!)

My church picks all their baby shower gifts from the Baby Depot.

Why? Because prices go as low as 65% off retail prices, when compared to other stores around. And yes, I’m talking about the big names on the labels too!

Burlington is going an extra mile this month to help kids in the communities they’re in.

Burlington Book Buddies Program


Partnering with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, a national non-profit organization, and Sprout, they’ve kicked off an amazing intitative to help children discover the wonderful world of reading. The program is aptly called the Burlington Book Buddies Program.

Here’s how you can help…

Burlington Book Buddies Program

To celebrate the world of reading, Burlington will host exclusive reading events with characters from Sprout at the New York City Union Square store on August 1 and the Chicago North State Street store on August 14.  The events will feature The Sunny Side Up Show’s Tim and Chica. Beginning at 2:00 pm, children are invited to meet Chica and Tim, sing songs and listen to a special story during this exclusive in-store event.


I love it when brands give back.

Do you have a Burlington store closeby?

Would you remember to stop by with a few books please?

Thank you!

    I have a Burlington about 10 minutes away. I love shopping there.

  2. 2

    Sounds like a really wonderful program. Thank you for telling us about it. I really want to do something that will benefit the children locally in helping them get ready to go back to school.

    Our Burlington just moved into a brand new building but haven’t been yet! What a great excuse for me to go check them out, so I can buy some of the books while I am there!

  4. 4

    Oh I love that sock monkey lovey. There’s a Burlington a couple of hours away. I’ve stopped at it on several trips (especially leading up to our baby being born.) They have great deals!

  5. 5

    We have one at our local mall. I get some great clothing deals in there!

  6. 6

    What a great program! As a homeschool mom I find reading to be essential, love this!

  7. 7

    We have a Burlington about 15 minutes from my home.I will have to look for this program in stores. I think this is a great initiative.

  8. 8

    Reading is SO important, and I love when companies have programs that give back to little ones in the community.

  9. 9

    I love Burlington Coat Factory. We go there often. What a cute little sock monkey ha ha

    There is no Burlington store where I live but I think their book buddies program is fantastic. I love companies that give back. Thanks for sharing.

    We have one but it’s pretty far from me. They are building one much closer though, can’t wait. I really like learning about new book programs.

  12. 12

    This sounds like a really great program. I do have a Burlington just a few minutes away!

  13. 13

    Being in the UK we do not have this one,but it sounds like a really great program.

  14. 14

    I haven’t been to Burlington in years but loved shopping for baby items when my girls were little.

  15. 15

    We have lots of discount department stores around here. I bet there’s a Burlington somewhere

  16. 16

    Burlington is about 20-30min drive from me. I go a few times a year and stock up when I find things in my size. It is well worth the drive.

  17. 17

    We do have a Burlington near us. I apparently was unaware that they sold anything other than coats! I will have to check them out!

  18. 18

    This looks like an awesome program. Wish we had one near us.

  19. 19

    This seems like a great program. It is good when companies give back to the communities that patronize them.

  20. 20

    What a cool program! I always forget that they have so much baby stuff!

  21. 21

    I discovered Baby Depot only a few years ago. I love their prices!

  22. 22

    I don’t have a store near me. What a great program though! :)
