Boscovs Coupons & Promo Codes
At only 18, Solomon Boscov left his family in Russia and immigrated to the United States in 1914. He settled in Reading, PA where the Yiddish he spoke at home was similar to the German spoken by the Pennsylvania Dutch farmers throughout Berks and Lancaster County. With a pack on his back and with the few dollars he had, he began peddling household goods to the farm families in the surrounding area. He developed a reputation of fairness and honesty. As his business and reputation grew, he was able to buy the dry goods store that had provided the merchandise he peddled and the first Boscov’s Department Store was established. It was a true neighborhood store providing honest pricing and quality merchandise to the community in good times and through the bad times of the depression.
