Assistant Store Manager
Posted on: May 16, 2022
Job DescriptionOur 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 ﬁrst EbLens would open for business. Little did Ebner and
Leonard know that one day their ﬁrst 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 ﬁnd 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 ﬁrst 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 eblens.com 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!JOB OVERVIEWEbLens is looking for top Retail Management
