NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – Boscov’s in Sangertown Square will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, following several other retailers that have made the same decision recently, including Target, Walmart and Kohl's.
This is an effort to protect employees and customers by avoiding crowds that tend to come out to shop on the holiday.
CEO Jim Boscov says this decision was also made to allow employees to enjoy Thanksgiving with their 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 will release updated hours closer to the holiday.
