A popular national retailer of Western and workwear is expanding and will open its first two New Jersey locations in South Jersey.

Boot Barn has announced its plans to open locations in Millville and Cherry Hill this year.

Boot Barn has leased a store at Union Lake Crossing on Route 47 at Cumberland Crossing to serve the greater Millville-Vineland area.

The Union Lake Crossing store will be among two initial locations that Boot Barn is opening in New Jersey later this year as the 303-unit chain pushes northward along the East Coast from existing locations in Delaware and Pennsylvania.

The Cherry Hill Boot Barn store will open in the Garden State Pavilion at 2232 Marlton Pike West in late May. The store will take over the space in the shopping center formerly occupied by Modell’s.

Currently operating in 38 states, Boot Barn ranks as the nation's leading lifestyle retailer of western and work-related footwear, apparel and accessories for men, women and children.

Boot Barn's Union Lake Crossing store is expected to debut this fall, occupying a space between Party City and Xfinity.

Boot Barn's website says they have been in business since 1978.
