Indiana’s Largest Optical Retailer Forges Exclusive Partnership with Rising Philanthropic Eyewear Brand

Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) September 04, 2013

Ossip Optometry today announced that it is the exclusive retailer in Indiana of 141 Eyewear, a growing philanthropic eyewear brand that donates a pair of frames for every pair sold. The donated frames go to clinics that provide eye exams and custom-made prescription eyeglasses to children in need around the United States.

Since opening its first store in Broad Ripple in 1952, Ossip Optometry has grown to more than 19 locations statewide. The company has grown on a reputation for expert service, cutting-edge technology, a creative inventory of frame styles, and its commitment to the community. Ossip Optometry’s Day of Giving provides free eye exams and eye care to people without affordable access to such services. Carrying 141 Eyewear offers Ossip Optometry the opportunity to build on this philanthropic effort while offering new design choices for its customers, particularly children.

“We’re thrilled with the quality and the design. The fun colors and on-trend design for kids’ frames have their own personality and intelligence,” said Catherine Skelton, Ossip Optometry’s Director of Product, Merchandising and Services. “Our customers respond well to pure optical brands, and 141 Eyewear’s mission to help a kid with every purchase resonated strongly with our own.”

“We’re ecstatic that Ossip Optometry has joined the 141 Eyewear family,” said 141 Eyewear co-founder Kyle Yamaguchi. “The success of our mission hinges on dedicated retailers who believe in the promise of the brand and will help spread the word, one customer and patient at a time. Ossip Optometry’s reputation and success gives us great confidence that we’re going to help a lot of kids see, learn and live better.”
