Boscov’s coming to Meadowbrook Mall
Jim Boscov, Chairman and CEO of Boscov’s, is pleased to announce that an all-new edition of his family’s iconic department store will open the company’s 50th store, it’s first in the state of West Virginia, at Meadowbrook Mall in Bridgeport. The store will open in the fall of 2023. The new 151,000 square foot Boscov’s will be the largest department store in the region. Boscov’s will combine, reimagine and completely remodel spaces previously occupied by Sears and a dozen other adjacent mall stores bringing North Central West Virginia communities a traditional Boscov’s store with a modern design!
Based in Reading, PA, Boscov’s operates 49 stores in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Ohio. It is the nation’s largest family owned department store chain. Boscov’s is now celebrating its 109th year as a full-line, full-service department store and is known as much for making shopping fun as it is for offering the best brands at the best prices with incredible service. Over 250 Boscov’s co-workers will offer unique services and provide extras, such as free gift wrap supplies regardless of the amount of the purchase, a year round military discount, a gift registry for every occasion, curbside pickup and a hassle free return policy.

Best known for its unique retailing style, Boscov’s combines a vast assortment of fashion merchandise that includes both traditional labels and leading designer names. In addition to the wide range of departments normally found in department stores, Boscov’s also features departments such as toys, furniture, an exciting gift department, a huge full service candy department and much more.
“We have the advantage of being a family-owned business. That means we can make decisions and work to please the customer; not the stock market,” Jim Boscov said. “We still believe in the traditional department store, where in one shopping trip, you can find everything you want. North Central West Virginia is going to see some very aggressive retailing that combines fun, fashion, community partnership, entertainment and service with jaw dropping pricing throughout the store.” To join Mr. Boscov on a video tour, click on this link: https://youtu.be/iDUo4z85BXs
As America’s largest family-owned department store company, family matters to Boscov’s. Year-round, Boscov’s is actively involved with local non-profit organizations. Last year, these efforts resulted in over $2.5 million raised for the communities it serves. It is important that fundraising efforts remain within those communities. A special event to benefit local charities in the North Central West Virginia area will take place in conjunction with the Grand Opening of the Meadowbrook Mall Boscov’s. More details about this event will be forthcoming.
The Meadowbrook Mall Complex is located on Interstate 79, Exit 121, in Bridgeport, West Virginia. It has been serving the people of North Central since 1982.
