SEE Eyewear exterior
If you follow my blog, you know that I'm a sucker for chic, hip, and stylish glasses and that's why I'm happy to announce that SEE Eyewear is expanding to a second location in the Bay Area, right SF. The new location is at The Palace Hotel ( another place I love. Exquisite brunch by the way), and for you East Bay-ers that means that this location is literally steps away from the Montgomery Street BART stop.
SEE Eyewear interior
Selective Eyewear Elements (SEE) is a national eye glass boutique, which was originally the brainchild of optical guru Richard Golden, and aimed to bring the masses "cool" eye wear at 1/3 to 1/2 the price of designer glasses with the same craftsmanship. The prices range from $99 for sunglasses to $339 for the higher price range Rx Glasses (with no extra change for Rx lenses in eyeglasses). With stores in New York City, Lost Angeles, South Beach, Boston, Chicago, Denver, D.C., Nashville, Charleston, Birmingham, and Mischigan, you'd think that a second store in SF wouldn't be necessary. However, Richard golden thought that "Adding another store to San Francisco was a no brainer" adding that "The area is big enough to support two stores..." and I agree as you can never have too many options for great eye wear.
My favorite pair the SEE 1260
If you are in SF make sure you stop by the new location M-Fri 10am-7pm, Sat 11am-6pm, Sun Noon-5pm in The Palace Hotel (651 Market Street, SF) and if you're on a shopping trip in the Union street area visit the original SEE Eyewear location at 2100 Union Street at Webster.
