Many would consider leaving an established non-profit career for a position with a brick and mortar retail chain a risk. “In a time when many well- known retailers are closing their doors, I had the opportunity to be a part of a team that brought the new BOSCOV’S DEPARTMENT STORE to Providence,” says Johanna Corcoran.
After sixteen years of deep involvement with RI non-profits through positions at Brown University, United Way, and Children’s Friend, Johanna is excited about the opportunities ahead. ”I see this new role as a continuation of my work; another opportunity to make an impact. Boscov’s is dedicated to being a meaningful partner in the community.”
In addition to partnering with the community, Johanna also creates in- store events that attract customers and make shopping fun. Whether it’s photo opps with Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony,
or tips from a design pro on how to create the perfect tablescape, events are the heartbeat of the store. “I’m excited to help Boscov’s become fully integrated into the RI marketplace and redefine what it means to be a retailer in 2020.”
