Posted by: Julie Kubsch - August, 25th 2016 @ 02:15 pm

Bloomington, IL, August 16, 2016 - Specs Around Town in Downtown Bloomington has been awarded one of the nine 2016 “America’s Finest” honorable mentions by INVISION, the magazine for the American Eyecare Professional in its third annual contest.


The America’s Finest Optical Retailers Contest highlights the best examples of independent eyecare retailers in North America and are judged by a panel of optical retail experts on six categories: story, exterior appearance, interior appearance, advertising and marketing, store website and overall individuality.


 “We’re honored to be included with such amazing optical retailers from around the country,” said Julie Kubsch, Owner of Specs Around Town. “At Specs, we pride ourselves on selling the most unique eyewear in Central Illinois using innovative marketing tactics and by providing incredible customer service, so it feels good for our hard work to be recognized as one of Invision’s “America’s Finest!”


“Every year we feel privileged to bring our readers the best of the best in our industry,” said Ralf Kircher, Invision’s Executive Editor. “Winning stores often have amazing product lineups and are impressive to look at. But a store wouldn’t really fit our ‘cool’ criteria if it weren’t for such aspects as innovative marketing, creative retail environment and a unique work culture.”


Specs Around Town will be featured in the September 2016 issue of INVISION and will be celebrating in store during F1rst Fr1day from 4-8 p.m. on October 7 with a trunk show featuring Theo Eyewear, refreshments and chance to win a Theo frame of your choice at 317 N. Center Street in Downtown Bloomington
