Locals now have an affordable and convenient option in the Lowcountry when shopping for prescription eyewear. Optical retailer Eyemart Express, known for making high-quality glasses in as little as 30 minutes, is opening its first store in North Charleston, and the Charleston market, on Monday, Jan. 17. The new store is in The Promenade at Northwoods at 7818 Rivers Avenue and marks the retailer’s ninth location in South Carolina.

Around a dozen new jobs are created with the store opening, ranging from full- and part-time sales associates to lab technicians and opticians. Eyemart Express offers a variety of training and development programs to cultivate career paths in the optical industry along with a competitive benefits package for all associates.

“Demand has grown in South Carolina for affordable, high-quality eyewear that you can wear home on the same day, and now we can immediately help customers in North Charleston see clearly at our newest location,” says Melissa Bryant, store manager of the new North Charleston Eyemart Express. “You will save time and money when you shop with us because our expert opticians and lab technicians make everything on-site. Convenience and value are so important, especially during this time of year. We make prescription eyewear accessible to everyone and every budget.”

At Eyemart Express, gone are the days of waiting two weeks or longer for new glasses. The new North Charleston store has an on-site lab and skilled lens technicians who can make high-quality glasses and prescription sunglasses in as little as 30 minutes. The retailer carries more than 2,000 frames at accessible price points for the whole family from brands like Ray-Ban, Coach, Nike, and Disney.

Prices for glasses start at less than $40 for two pairs. Eyemart Express focuses on community giving, and offers everyday discounts for additional savings to veterans, military families, first responders, health care workers, and school faculty and staff members.

North Charleston residents can either visit the independent Doctor of Optometry next door to the new Eyemart Express store for an eye exam or they can bring in an existing prescription from their eye doctor.
