HOUSTON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Visionworks, the largest wholly owned U.S.-based optical retailer, has announced that, as of June 10, all 26 EyeMasters stores throughout the Greater Houston area are now operating under the Visionworks banner. More than a simple name change, Visionworks promises a deepened commitment to extraordinary service, selection and value for Houston-area consumers.
The refurbished stores not only will have an enhanced layout and appearance, but also will offer a much larger selection and greater variety of contemporary eyewear styles at affordable prices, a reflection of Visionworks' "A Better You" brand promise.
"Through the process of rebranding, we have been committed to maintaining the excellent reputation of EyeMasters in the Houston market, while also providing an even better experience for our customers," said Jim Eisen, president of Visionworks. "It is important to us that our Houston customers can take advantage of the best service, selection and value we have to offer."
Just in time for summer, all Visionworks stores around Houston will be filled with the season's hottest trends, including brightly-colored, vintage-inspired and "geek chic" frames as well as prescription sunglasses. In addition, Visionworks will continue to accept all of the same insurance plans as EyeMasters.
"The new and improved Visionworks will deliver a superior in-store shopping experience with the added benefit of a nationwide brand name so customers are likely to find a friendly, convenient Visionworks store wherever they happen to be," said Shawn Dafforn, Visionworks' regional vice president for Texas.
