Boscov’s In Wilkes-Barre Shut Down By Broken Pipes

WILKES-BARRE — A department store in Luzerne County is closed because of a broken water pipe.

That broken pipe flooded the first floor of Boscov’s on South Main Street in Wilkes-Barre.

The fire chief says the frigid weather caused the water pipe that leads to a sprinkler system to break sending water everywhere.

There is no word on when Boscov’s in downtown Wilkes-Barre will reopen.

    I enjoy shopping downtown at Boscov’s. The ladies in the bedding and towels department are always so lovely. Such dedication.

    When they get the insurance check, things will be ok, then they will close shortly after. Want to place bets on this?

    Robyn is right! No way would a little flood keep Mr. B and those dedicated co-workers from serving the people of WB!

    I hope they reopen.. The store has been the heart of Wilkes Barre for so long. Hope the water was not too much for them to handle. :(

    This is so sad!! I hope they come back after this. If they don’t then I believe wilkes-barre will be done for it.

    Boscov’s will reopen tomorrow. They came out of bankruptcy, a little water is nothing. Take it to the bank.
