The quaint little town of Portogruaro in Venice, Italy, buzzed with excitement last weekend, thanks to our wonderful stockist, Ottica Coassin! 

Taking inspiration from our love of fashion and music, Ottica Coassin dressed their storefront windows with MOSCOT Eyewear and classic electric guitars…how cool is that?! With over 100 guests in attendance, fans, customers, and press rocked the night away, viewing our latest MOSCOT Originals and MOSCOT Sun Collections.

A GIANT THANK YOU to Ottica Coassin, and to our European distribution partner, Baumvision Europe, for a job well done! We feel so lucky! 

Check out Ottica Coassin's MOSCOT windows below and stay tuned for a very special video, coming up this week!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who came out last night to help celebrate the official opening of our new Orchard Street Shop at 108 Orchard!

Over nibbles and wine, and of course, champagne, we drank, laughed, and reminisced. To our friends, fans, and neighbors, we cannot thank you enough for your years of continued love and support. We are so very grateful. And the best part is, this is just the beginning!  To the future!

Check out photos from our new Shop, taken last night. The Shop is not finished yet…but we're getting there!

It's official! The day has come! After 77.5 years at 118 Orchard, MOSCOT has crossed Delancey Street to 108 Orchard! We're still putting on the finishing touches, so please excuse our mess, but we just couldn't wait…our doors are open TODAY!

We're super happy and incredibly excited to announce the official opening of MOSCOT Orchard Street at 108 Orchard, on the OTHER corner of Delancey.

There's so much more in-store to see...we can't wait to share! So what are you waiting for? Come on by!

108 Orchard Street resumes normal working hours today:
Monday to Friday 10AM to 7PM
Saturday 10AM to 6PM
Sunday 11AM to 6PM

And don't forget to stop by Thursday, May 23rd (tomorrow!) for our once-every-77.5-years-only-moving special, as we stay open late to offer friends and neighbors 15% off all MOSCOT frames – at our new 108 Orchard Street Shop only - from 11AM to 9PM. We hope to see you there!

NOTE: 15% off MOSCOT FRAMES only. Offer good in shop ONLY, at 108 Orchard Street, on May 23rd from 11AM to 9PM ONLY. Offer applies to frames only, and may not be combined with other offers or discounts, or insurance/VSP.

The day has come! The countdown has begun! And our move is underway! With nearly eighty years worth of quirky and historical tchotchkes, treasures, and furnishings in tow, MOSCOT Orchard Street has begun crossing Delancey from 118 Orchard to 108 Orchard.

Yesterday, Day 1…was not a day for the faint of heart. Our Shop's kluged together wall showcase, which generation after generation of Moscots added to over the years until it grew to its present day, GIANT, room-sized self was gingerly taken apart, piece by delicate piece, by a team of professional disassemblers - who all the while scratched their heads wondering if it would crumble to pieces. Then the hundreds of pieces were carried across Delancey (no jaywalking with this monster) to its new home at 108, where the (now) reassemblers miraculously put the thing back together - and man oh man…it's never looked better! Whoop!

Check out these photos from the disassembly/reassembly - including the secret door we found behind the monster wall showcase when we took it apart! And spoiler alert - sneak peak of the new shop!

Nine days and counting until 108 opens on May 22!

Disassembling...


Behind the wall showcase...a secret door? Secret passage?


Nope, no jaywalking for us!



Success! Its new home at 108 Orchard!




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!

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.
