Cohen's Celebrates 90 Years & Empowering Customers Through Sight

January 01, 2017

Cohen’s Fashion Optical is one of the many Houchens ESOP companies. Founder Jack Cohen’s philosophy was everyone who needs prescription eyeglasses wants to look better, see better, and feel better about themselves. He began selling eyeglasses in 1927 from a small pushcart in Manhattan, and now 90 years later the company is still going strong. Cohen’s provides rich heritage of personal attention, comprehensive care, and affordable designer style. Cohen’s says “For us, it’s all about the relationships - with Houchens, our customers, and the vibrant neighborhoods we all call home.”

Cohen’s is celebrating its 90th anniversary with a brand-new giveback mission called Empowerment Through Sight. The company provides free eyeglasses to people who need them in communities near and far, gives free eye exams to kids, and donates to hospitals in neighborhoods all over. Cohen’s wants to make a difference worldwide, and strives to help everyone have healthy eyes. Learn more about Cohen’s mission to give back HERE.
