Boscov's Opens at the Meriden Mall

Social media Promotion

There's a great new addition to the Westfield Meriden Mall in Meriden CT!

It's Boscov's - a family owned and operated department store since 1914! Specializing in everyday low prices, top designer brands, and superb customer service, you're sure to find just what you're looking for on every shopping trip! And what's more - gift wrap services are available EVERY DAY - not just for the holidays!

Opening "officially" on October 10th 2015, I visited their Meriden store earlier as part of a special promotion and charity benefit offering shoppers a preview of the store. This promotion offered shoppers the opportunity to preview and shop the store in exchange for a $5.00 donation to support a local community non-profit organization.

As you can see, Boscov's is looking forward to becoming a BIG part of the Connecticut community!

Luckily, I'm already familiar with the Boscov's retail stores so I was prepared for a shopping evening of fun! My sister worked at and opened the Dover Delaware store years before, and more recently, I was a frequent visitor to Boscov's in Clifton Park NY every time I visited my niece in New York.

On our visit we met with social media coordinator Jackie who explained the Boscov history and showed us the storyboard of the family's retail success! She explained that Boscov family descendant Al Boscov, now in his 80's, is still present in operations and remains chairman of the board. Nephew James "Jim" Boscov, was named CEO in 2014. Both Al and Jim were present at the Meriden store's opening and were making their way through every department, welcoming visitors and posing for pictures with their many shoppers!

In an interview with the Hartford Courant, the Boscovs' explained that's how they can keep their prices low - having family as their only stockholders allows the customer to win on savings!

The Meriden Boscov's did not disappoint with savings and selection!

It had a great range of items - everything from housewares, to clothing, to furniture to home decor! And, did I mention a fully stocked gourmet candy counter where fresh fudge is manufactured every day?

On my trip I was especially wowed by the careerwear with items from Calvin Klein and Evan Picone, but always the "shoe gal' I spent most of my time in the shoe and accessories department, perusing fall shoe and boot fashions, fun accessories, stylish jewelry, scarves, and handbags.
