Boscov’s is one of the last family-owned department store chains in the United States. A store representative recounted the history timeline and pointed out some of the key features that make this store different from its competitors. Top of that list is the emphasis on the connection to the community. They live this philosophy by setting aside space within the store for outside events and in hosting “special shopper days” with access through a donation to a local, non-profit organization.

After taking a tour around the entire store, both floors, I honed in on the home furnishings area.

I love the displays in their home furnishings department, notice the recipes on the chalkboards!

  1. I just read your blog and it was great! It brought back memories of my college days in PA when I would take my great aunt shopping at Boscov’s and she would always stop and pick up some fudge for my uncle. Looking forward to having it in CT!
