“Boscov’s is very proud of our children’s department and we’re planning many meaningful events for Rhode Island families. This wonderful afternoon with R.W. Alley will be the first in a series of opportunities for families to come spend time with us.” said Corcoran.
Boscov’s is the largest family-owned department store in the US, with stores in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Connecticut, and now, Rhode Island’s Providence Place Mall. The 105-year-old department store chain offers many well-known brands and a strong involvement with the community.
