New Binghamton Agreement With Boscov’s

Details of a revised agreement between the city of Binghamton and the operators of downtown’s only department store are expected to be released soon.

The Pennsylvania-based Boscov’s chain opened the Binghamton store at Court and Water streets 29 years ago this month.

In an interview earlier this year, company chairman Albert Boscov acknowledged very little had been done to enhance the store since its opening. He told WNBF News there were plans to turn the Binghamton location into a “contemporary store.”

Boscov said the store had seen more younger customers recently as the presence of Binghamton University students has grown downtown.

Repair work on a leaky roof began several weeks ago. Boscov’s representatives have not commented on specific improvements that may be made to the Binghamton store.

Mayor Matthew Ryan last spring said a new agreement with Boscov’s was being finalized.

This week on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Ryan said there was nothing to announce yet regarding a revised deal with the chain but he expected details would be released later this month.
