Job Description Our Story Since 1949 we---ve maintained a

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.

family to a premiere retail destination delivering the best and
most sought after fashion inspired by today---s urban lifestyle.
