Eyelab, a 98-store eyewear retailer, is moving into the one-story building at the corner of Colonial and Maguire at 3016 E Colonial Drive. The building is currently undergoing cosmetic renovations. It formerly housed Diamond Exchange.
To circumvent costly markups traditionally associated with national brick-and-mortar stores, Eyelab works directly with designer eyewear manufacturers and equips a majority of its stores with optical labs that produce quality prescription eyeglasses in as little as 15 minutes. They also display their eyeware by shape rather than price or brand.
No opening date has been announced.
