On this October 31st, all Hallows Eve of 2013, Eyes on Fremont turns 17 years old!! This is a special day for us- to have our business flourishing as it is today, is a blessing & a triumph for small business owners everywhere.
Nate Ogura, owner of the shop, posted this on the EyesonFremontInstagram this morning:
Happy Halloween!!! It’s always a special day for us. Today Eyes on Fremont turns 17. Lots of great times, ups and downs, etc. etc. What is really cool is the 17 years part. We are fortunate enough to still be here. A story in the New York Times stated the average lifespan of a small business in the US is about eight and a half years, well now we’ve made it twice that. Stan and Linda started the store with the principals of exceptional product at a fair price, coupled with real opticianry. It has gotten us to here, and we’ll continue to adhere to those founding ideas.
So, from the bottom of our hearts here at EYES ON FREMONT, THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us to this day. Because, of course, we wouldn’t have made it this far without you. ♥
