READING, Pa. — Boscov’s announced Thursday it will close all stores on Thanksgiving Day this year, citing the hard work its employees have done during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is the second straight year that Boscov's has decided to close its stores on Thanksgiving. 

“The pandemic has required enormous efforts from our associates and they’ve more than earned this time off,” said Jim Boscov, CEO of the company. “In addition, I hope that closing on Thanksgiving Day once again becomes an industry tradition allowing our coworkers the ability to enjoy an uninterrupted Thanksgiving Day with their families.” 

Boscov’s said it will announce revised holiday shopping hours closer to the holiday shopping season. 

Based in Reading, Boscov’s operates 48 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 107th year as a full-line, full-service department store. It offers many customer-friendly services, such as a year-round military discount, a gift registry for every occasion, a hassle free return policy and free curbside pickup.
