Looking for fashionable frames at affordable prices? Quality Fashion Optical on Greenpoint Avenue near 43rd Street is a local gem for stylish eyewear and great customer service. We stopped by this week to admire the amazing sunglasses selection, just in time for sunny summer weekends.
Owner Robert Ustayev has been in business for five years and loves the diversity and friendly atmosphere of Sunnyside. He understands that finding the right glasses is an important investment, and works with his customers to make sure they are satisfied before leaving the store. During our interview, a customer in the store added: "Robert offers the best service. He always has a smile on his face."
Quality Fashion Optical has a full lab on-site where all lenses are crafted according to customers' specifications. Since everything is done on-site, rush orders are no problem. A vision specialist is on-site four days a week as well. And, if you need custom tailoring while you wait for your frames, Rosa Ardzivian runs a top-notch tailoring and alterations operation right in the front.
TIPS: The entire inventory of sunglasses are on sale this summer, including all recent designer models for just $99 for frames and a case. A huge shipment of Ray-Bans and Marc Jacobs designs will arrive next week. Bring in a copy of this newsletter for 20% off anything in the store, excluding sale items.
