EbLens Assistant Manager/Key Holder in Hempsted, New York

Our Story

Since 1949 we?ve maintained a heritage of leadership, innovation, service, and style. With great hope, energy, and a shoestring budget, friends Ebner "Eb" Glooskin and Leonard "Len" Seaman, opened a small "Workingman's" store in New Britain, Connecticut. Their roadmap to success was simple - provide quality products, offer them at fair prices, and deliver it all to customers through great service. On a cold February morning in of 1949 the ?rst EbLens would open for business. Little did Ebner and Leonard know that one day their ?rst store would be joined by dozens more; not only in Connecticut but throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York State, and New Hampshire. Fast forward through decades of continuous operation, and you will ?nd the team at EbLens still working hard to provide the very best retail experience to their customers. After years of supplying all the necessities for work, and a shift into army & navy surplus, today?s EbLens has risen from selling essentials to the whole family to a premiere retail destination delivering the best and most sought after fashion inspired by today?s urban lifestyle. Times have changed since we opened our ?rst store, and after years of serving countless customers, we have too. For the latest information on our products, events or promotions check us out at or follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. But after more than 65 years some things never change. We?d still prefer you drop-in to one of our many convenient locations and see for yourself how Eb & Len are at it again!
