Worcester – The Joe Cohen Worcester Retailer of the Year award is presented by SCORE Worcester to a successful Worcester retailer who actively engages the community through support of local initiatives, with emphasis on nonprofit efforts. This year’s awardee, Magay & Barron Eye Center, was honored, according to SCORE officials, for its “incredible customer service and understanding that a healthy community means a better business.”

In 2012, Magay & Barron was also honored for a century of continuous business in Worcester and today is led by the third generation, grandson Jim Magay and his wife Eddi.

Magay & Barron is a founding member of the Lincoln Street Area Business Association and longtime supporters of the North Worcester Business Association and the Chamber of Commerce.

The company has been a supporter of public education and the arts over the years, with involvement at local schools, the Worcester Art Museum and Tower Hill Botanic Garden. Civic organizations, including the Lions Club and the Masons, also benefit from Magay & Barron’s support.
