Gil A. DeWitt, who manages Littman Jewelers in Westminster's TownMall, can hardly wait for the new Boscov's store to open. His store has spent $300,000 on renovations and expansions in anticipation of the 16-year-old mall's biggest addition ever. "I'm as excited as can be," said DeWitt. "I'm 50 feet from the entrance, and everyone and their brother is going to come by my store."
