Big sale Wednesday at Boscov’s

Boscov’s announced a $1 million goal for charity as it launches its 25th Friends Helping Friends event on Wednesday, Oct. 20.

“Throughout the markets we serve, over 3,000 nonprofit organizations have been working to distribute shopping passes, giving their supporters a 25% discount on almost everything we sell,” said Jim Boscov, chairman and CEO. “Now, more than ever, we need the services that these charities provide in all of our communities.”

In addition to the largest discount of the year, all Boscov’s stores will offer extended store hours from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

“This event has developed into a wonderful opportunity for both our customers and nonprofit partners and we believe the $1 million goal is realistic,” Boscov said.

Customers earn the 25 percent discount by contributing $5 to a participating nonprofit.

Also, one participating customer at each store will win a $100 gift card. ••
