Pennsylvania-based department store chain, Boscov’s, is opening this weekend at the Westfield Meriden Mall. This is the first New England location for the store. Boscovs has 44 total stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Delaware, Ohio and now Connecticut.
Boscov’s is a family-owned department store founded by Solomon Boscov in 1914. He sold his goods door-to-door when he first started. Boscov’s is committed to the community. They work closely with non-profit organizations and host special shopper days to give back to the organizations offering team warm ups for school teams.

Something you won’t find at Boscov’s are coupons. Unlike other department stores Boscov’s does not use coupons, only sales on their merchandise.
Boscovs is a large anchor store for the mall, just around the corner from the new TJMaxx. Boscov’s is a full service department store, stocking a full range of brand-name merchandise from fashion items for men, women and children to a complete line of home furnishings, appliances, and even toys. Boscov’s places great emphasis on customer service, creative promotions, and exciting events.
A few others things that also set Boscov’s apart is their Free gift-wrapping everyday of they year. Now you can buy birthday, anniversary, Christmas gifts and have them wrapped for Free anytime you shop. They also have an in-house candy store and make homemade fudge every day as well as roasted nuts similar to the kind you see on the streets of New York City! They also have a community room in the back of the store that can be used by organizations to host events, classes, and community outreach.
During our Boscov’s shopping trip we spotted a wonderful Christmas village and this precious Carousel.
