Boscov’s is a family-owned department store with 50 locations in the eastern United States. The current company chairman is Jim Boscov, who took over after his uncle Albert Boscov died in February 2017.
Solomon “Sol” Boscov was of Jewish descent, he immigrated to Reading, Pennsylvania, in 1902. He had $1.37 in cash on arrival in the United States. He worked as a traveling salesman with an initial $8 worth of merchandise. Because he spoke Yiddish, he was able to converse with those people in Berks County who spoke Pennsylvania Dutch. Solomon’s fortunes changed in 1911 when he opened the first Boscov’s store in Reading to much fanfare. With growing notoriety, Boscov’s began expanding in the Pennsylvania suburbs through the 1960s.
