2006-04-08 00:48:52   The wife and I went there this evening to look at glasses with the intent of purchasing. We were met at the door almost immediately by a lady who seemed like she did not want us there. She explained to us we did not have an appointment so we were not able to buy any glasses. On top of that, no prices were listed next to the glasses. We were told they "go in back" to look up the price. So we left and spent our money somewhere else because they were not willing to even sell us anything, or even give us any kind of service without us making an appointment. Since when is buying frames like buying a car? I was offended that we were treated like we were not welcome there and did not like the arbitrary feel of their pricing policy. —JasonWilder

I wasn't a huge fan of it either or of my waitstaff(?)'s opinions, but having a friend there to help me found me number of great frames and I bought one that I'm very happy with and definitely wouldn't have found at some other store. FYI, mine were quite reasonable ($200 I think) and if you want to return after your initial visit at any time you may do so without an appointment. I'd still highly recommend it (and One Hip Chic for female frames) over anything else in the area. —RochesterGuy

We didn't end up buying the frames there because he found some he liked better elsewhere, but maybe they got some complaints and have changed their tactics a bit? —AdrienneDahler
