Boscov’s to host sensory-friendly event tomorrow morning

Local News

Because shopping can be challenging for those with sensory issues, a local store is hosting a special event.  

It’s the first-ever ‘Autism/Special Needs Shopping Event’ at Boscov’s in the Millcreek Mall.  This Boscov’s was selected as the tester location to host this first company event. If it’s successful, all other 46 Boscov’s locations nationwide will host similar sensory-friendly events.

Guests will enjoy special discounts, light snacks, and goody bags. 

PR Manager Christine Fetcho says, “We’re doing everything in our power. We’ll have low lighting tomorrow. No music, no fitting room sensors, and no pages during that time frame, as well.”

The event is tomorrow from 9-10am. 

To RSVP, you can call 814-860-3020 and ask for Christine, or email
