Boscov's is one of the real last remaining department stores left. Hey are located throughout PA, NJ, DE, MD.

They have depatments that other stores left behind years ago like toys, electronics, photo (ritz camera), garden center, candy, appliances (not much), stationary, travel centers, etc... some even still have restaurants in them.

They are a privately-owned company. Prices are decent and the quality of the merchandise is high.

All their stores are unique, because most are in recycled buildings. Several current Boscov's once went under the name "Ports of The World". I think Boscov's bought this small chain in the early 90's.

Here's a pic of my local store (more pics @ www.boscovs.com)

Typical department store interior. They use lots of neon on the different department signs, and the whole store has an upscale look to it. It varies slightly by each store

It reminded me a lot of a Kaufmanns with a little more emphasis on things like Sporting goods. Very upscale, high quality products, very impressive. Definitely worth checking out.

About what you said abou Boscov's taking over old stores, that is very true. I thing that the only New York State location that is all original is the one in Binghamton. The ones in Albany were old stores: Colonie being a former Stienbach, and before that the original Colonie Center Mall Macys, and the Clifton Park one a former Caldor.

Also, the Nanuet location was a former store as well, but, I do not know the name. That might've been a Stienbach as well.

Just a small correction - the Colonie Center Macy's was not where Boscov's is now - it was actually where part of the mall hallway and small stores are now.  
If you are in the mall, coming from Sears - a couple stores past Friendly's (lower level) you'll see a hallway to the right that leads to offices and restrooms - that marks the end of the "old"part of the mall - directly in front of you (looking toward the current Macy's) would have been the front wall of the old Macy's.  Everything past here was added on or converted when Macy's built their new store - so this mall was much smaller and basically a "straight line" from Sears at one end to Macy's at the other - with a couple short halls to enter by (lower floor on the Wolf Rd side, upper floor on the cemetary side) plus the outside doors into Sears, Macy's, CVS and whatever used to be where Christmas Tree is now.

Boscov's is expanding! They are buying up a bunch of former May Co. Stores (10) In NJ, PA, and MD.

This will bring their store count to 50 stores in PA, NJ, DE , MD, NY, and one store in VA.

It is good to see that Boscov's has aquired a lot of stores from the May Company. It is a wonderful anchor to fill those spaces. The closest one to me is in Nanuet, about half an hour away, but I hope one opens really close to my town of Wayne. :yup:

The Boscov's at Neshaminy Mall was origially built by Lit Brothers in 1974.  It was the last Lit's store to open.  Later, this location was a Pomeroy's and a  Bon Ton store.  This Boscov's location opened in 1995.  I worked there from Oct, 1997 to Dec, 2000.
