Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corp. said today that same-store sales for the latest quarter dropped 8 percent, compared to a year ago.

It blamed the decrease on unusually warm weather during most of the quarter, and weak consumer demand.

Net sales for the quarter that ended Dec. 1 were $946.6 million, down 3.9 percent from $984.8 million a year earlier.

Burlington Coat Factory, of Burlington, is privately held.
