Boscov’s to close Thanksgiving Day in favor of Families and Health & Safety

Boscov’s is pleased to announce the closure of its stores on Thanksgiving Day. Since the onset of COVID-19, the primary focus at Boscov’s has been the health and safety of coworkers, customers and the communities it serves. Closing on Thanksgiving both eliminates a highly congested shopping day while also giving this day back to families.

“COVID-19 has required enormous efforts from our associates and they’ve more than earned this time off,” said Jim Boscov. “More than ever, this year has reinforced the importance of family and this decision allows our customers, coworkers and communities to enjoy an uninterrupted Thanksgiving meal.”

Boscov’s views this move as long overdue and hopes all other retailers join the movement to give Thanksgiving back to families. Boscov’s will announce revised holiday shopping hours along with the long list of incredible deals it’s so well known for closer to the holiday shopping season.

Based in Reading, PA, 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 106th 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. Boscov’s offers many customer-friendly services, such a year-round military discount, a gift registry for every occasion, a hassle free return policy and the option to buy online and pickup in-store.  To learn more, visit
