If you grew up in eastern Pennsylvania, chances are you can’t see those words without beginning to sing the Boscov’s jingle. Sadly, Albert Boscov passed away earlier this month, after leading the company founded by his father for over 50 years. Under his leadership, Boscov’s became the largest family-owned department store chain in America.
Perhaps you do not harbor the same affection for the owners of your hometown department store. Well, let me tell you a little more about Al Boscov and the business he created.
David Brooks and others have highlighted the difference between “resume virtues” and “eulogy virtues.” How amazing to witness a life that had plenty of both.
Dear Honeybees, I hope you Boscov today!
