Discount home improvement store opens next to Burlington

A discount home improvement retailer has opened on Union Deposit Road.

Home Outlet opened at The Point shopping center on Wednesday at 4247 Union Deposit Road in Lower Paxton Township. The store is located in a space next to Burlington. Last year, Burlington downsized and Home Outlet is taking over the vacant part of the store.

The store offers flooring, cabinetry, plumbing, door, and window products. The new Home Outlet store also offers complimentary design services as well as special financing options through a store credit card, and additional savings through a military appreciation program and a landlord program.

“We conduct a lot of research prior to selecting markets for new stores to ensure that it will be a good fit. The Harrisburg area presented as an excellent option for the fourth of five new store locations in 2020,” Travis Laurence, vice president of operations at E.C. Barton & Company said in a press release. “Within the last year, we have opened new locations in Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee and Ohio; we are excited to now expand upon our existing footprint here in Pennsylvania and look forward to becoming part of this community.”

Grand opening events are scheduled for next month.

The Barton’s location is 27,101 square feet, according to Cedar Realty Trust’s website. Cedar Realty Trust owns the shopping center.

E.C. Barton & Company, the owner of Home Outlet was founded in 1885, and is headquartered in Jonesboro, Arkansas and operates more than 105 stores in 17 states from upstate New York to south Texas under the following names: Barton’s Lumber, Grossman’s Bargain Outlet, Surplus Warehouse, Home Outlet and E.C.B. Brokerage. The closest Home Outlet stores to the new Harrisburg-area store are in New York, accodring to the company website.

The shopping center is anchored by Giant, Staples and Burlington. An A.C. Moore location closed at the shopping center after A.C. Moore closed all of its stores. Officials at Cedar Realty Trust couldn’t be reached for comment in regards to plans for the former A.C. Moore store.
