Year to Date Fiscal 2010 Operating Results

Tom Kingsbury, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are pleased to report an increase in Adjusted EBITDA versus last year despite the unseasonably warm weather in November which negatively impacted overall sales. In addition to our continued emphasis on expense control, focused inventory management has allowed us to reduce our average inventory per store by 12% while simultaneously improving both the currency and content. This has us well positioned for the future.”

As of January 12, 2010, the Company operates 442 stores under the names “Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse” (424 stores), “MJM Designer Shoes” (fifteen stores), “Cohoes Fashions” (two stores), and “Super Baby Depot” (one store) in 44 states and Puerto Rico.
