Burlington StoresBURLINGTON, N.J.-Burlington Stores said it is projecting a same-store sales increase of from 3-4 percent for its fiscal second quarter, which will end on Aug. 2.

Burlington is also renewing its current asset-backed lending facility for an additional five years, the statement said.
