Materials Delivered For Binghamton Boscov’s Work

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Some of the expected improvement projects at the downtown Binghamton Boscov’s department store apparently will be getting underway soon.

Roofing materials were being hoisted by crane to the top of the store at Court and Water streets Tuesday morning.

A section of Water Street was closed to traffic for several hours while crews using a crane moved materials up to the store roof.

Company chairman and CEO Albert Boscov in a March interview on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program indicated there would be some efforts to spruce up the downtown store, which opened in 1984.

Boscov said he wanted to make the Binghamton location a “contemporary store.” He said he hoped the store’s appearance would be “a lot better in the not-too-distant future.”

The Binghamton store manager Tuesday declined to discuss the planned work, referring an inquiry to Boscov’s headquarters in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Albert Boscov was not immediately available to discuss the project.

In the March interview, Boscov noted the number of young shoppers visiting the Binghamton store had increased along with the growing presence of students downtown.

During that conversation, Boscov said he believed “Binghamton will have a bright future.”
