Whats New


Yup, the date is set and the doors to our new home at 108 Orchard Street will officially open on May 22, 2013 - just a stone's throw away (literally) from our longtime location across Delancey.

After 77 and a half years at 118 Orchard Street, our iconic building was sold for development. Since Grandpa Hyman began selling eyewear from a pushcart in 1915, leaving the Lower East Side was not an option.

Incorporating eight decades worth of quirky and historical tchotchkes, treasures and furnishings moved across the street from 118, the new Orchard Street Shop is the perfect amalgamation of old and new. And at nearly 2200 square feet, the new ground floor space has plenty of room to house the same eyewear and same eyecare found at 118, as well as The MOSCOT Gallery & Music Space, which brings the neighborhood an intimate venue for live music, and a showcase for the Company's historical photos and memorabilia.

To commemorate the historic opening, we will remain open an extra two hours on Thursday, May 23rd, from 7PM to 9PM, offering friends and neighbors a chance to visit the Shop and shop - at a 15% discount from 6PM to 9PM - something that won't likely happen again for another 77 and a half years.

118 Orchard remains open through May 19th. Customers should visit our 14th Street or our Court Street Shop May 20th and 21st.



Three cheers for, and a HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY to, our newest stockist, Myoptic Optometry, in beautiful Portland, Oregon! Whoop!

Located in North Williams, Myoptic is dedicated to serving their surrounding community, and to fun and fashion - a most excellent mission we can certainly stand behind (especially since we share it in common!)!

To celebrate the arrival of MOSCOT, and their third year anniversary, Myoptic is holding a neighborhood block party this weekend (with free yummy snacks, cocktails and a live band) for any and all to attend! Check out their website at www.pdxeyes.com for more information, and details follow below:

Friday, May 10th, 2013, from 5 to 8PM

The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation made their quarterly visit last week to The Boys' Club, both downtown in the Lower East Side and uptown in Harlem. With a team of MOSCOT optometrists, patient coordinators, and opticians, we examined 30 children and dispensed glasses to 20 in need! 

Over the course of our two day visit, our team bonded with each child, learning more about their vision needs, experiences at school, even their favorite sports teams (overwhelmingly, the Knicks!), all while helping them pick out the perfect pair of frames! 

We are beyond grateful to The Boys' Club for their ongoing efforts in support of our team's quest to change lives through corrected vision. A single pair of prescription eyeglasses has enabled hundreds of children to finally reach their fullest academic potential, changing their lives forever! The impact for all those involved is not only immediate, but also long lasting as well. To learn more about MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation and how you can help a child in need, please visit our website at www.moscotmobileyes.com. More pictures from our visit below!





We love, love, LOVE Mexico City and the many MOSCOT friends and fans living there who've become part of our extended family! So we're super excited to add another family member to our mix...Optikal Shop in Plaza Antara, who have dressed their windows and in-store displays with all things MOSCOT to celebrate! Check out their gorgeous shop photos below, and make sure to visit their website at www.optikalshop.com.mx.
