First look: Boston Store's new furniture department

We stopped in at the new Boston Store furniture department in The Shops of Grand Avenue that opened yesterday on the second floor of the location, 331 W. Wisconsin Ave.

The focus of the revived department is to offer furnishings for people living in Downtown condos and apartments, and therefore some of the pieces will appeal most to those living in smaller spaces. The department also sells bedding and mattresses (we took a rest on all of them. Those Stearns and Fosters ‚Äď wooooeeeee!).¬†

The Downtown Milwaukee Boston Store is one of 24 stores owned by Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. Yesterday and today featured cookies and bottled water as part of the soft opening, but a grand opening is set for Thursday, May 26 which will give free gift cards to the first 100 people at 10 a.m., free sub sandwiches to the first 100 customers at 11 a.m., food trucks and free ice cream from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and a free beer tasting for happy hour.

Here are five pics of the new department:

"The Downtown Milwaukee Boston Store is one of 24 stores operated by Bon-Ton." I don't understand this statement. It is missing something somewhere.
