Look + See® Eyecare Named 2014 America’s Finest Optical Retailers
It’s our best kept secret…did you know Look + See® Eye Care was an INVISION Magazine “America’s Finest Optical Retailers” finalist? You can read more about it here!
Look + See® Eye Care of Minneapolis was named among the Top 10 U.S. independent optical businesses by INVISION, a new business magazine for eyecare professionals. “They get it!” wrote contest judge Robert Bell. “By talking with patients about their visual needs first, the folks at Look + See® involve their patients in helping them become part of finding their own eyecare solutions.”
Eyes on Fremont of Seattle was named the top store for 2014, with Silver Lining Opticians of New York City taking second place and Modern Eye of Philadelphia placing third. In addition to Look + See Eye Care, the Top 10 also included Eye Gallery, Ypsilanti, Mich.; Eye Impact, Houston, Texas; Georgetown Optician of Washington, D.C.; Modern Eyes, Austin, Texas; Providence Optical, Providence, R.I.; and Sight Optical, Grand Rapids, Mich.
Judging the entrants were INVISION columnists Robert Bell of the EyeCoach system and Rebecca Johnson of EyeTrain4You; industry pioneer Bob Hillman, whose business ventures grew into Pearle Vision and Eyelab; and Dr. Howard Purcell, senior vice president of customer development for Essilor of America.
The stores among 30 top independent eyewear retailers invited to take part in the magazine’s inaugural annual competition were judged on interior appearance, exterior appearance, website and overall individuality. All are featured in the July/August 2014 print edition of INVISION.
The 2015 America’s Finest Optical Retailers competition will be open to all U.S. eyecare businesses with five or fewer locations, except the businesses honored in 2014.
