The next day is the first that Boscov’s will be open to the public, with the store offering day-long specials and free entertainment. The first 5,000 customers will receive a coupon book to local restaurants.

And on Oct. 9, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. United Way of Trumbull County President Ginny Pasha will join representatives of organizations the nonprofit supports to cut the ribbon. The ceremony also includes a parade of antique cars, local officials and the Niles High School marching band.

Boscov’s is donating $1,000 to the United Way chapter and $100 to the participating organizations, part of its commitment to local agencies throughout its footprint.
