Eye Q Optical Opens New Store at 615 Centre in Jamaica Plain
Their Pond Street location around the corner will stay open weekends to showcase frames they design and develop themselves.
Eye Q Optical has been at 7 Pond St. in the corner of Centre for six years. With the opportunity opening up for a more visible location they've decided to establish a shop at 615 Centre, right next to GotSole.
Owner Paul Fox began making eyeglasses right out of high-school. He said he prides himself of manufacturing eyeware that fits your face perfectly.
According to the store's Web site, musicians known for their eyewear, including Aaron Perrino of the recently-reunited Sheila Divine—are loyal customers.
615 Centre has become Eye Q's fourth store. Their flagship operation opened in 1999 at 12 Eliot St. in Harvard Square, followed by 544 Tremont in the South End in 2002, then 7 Pond in JP, and now 615 Centre, JP.
"Our 7 Pond Street location remains in operation and is open both Saturdays and Sundays, so please visit that store to see more of the frames we design and develop ourselves," said Fox.
According to Eye Q's Facebook page, the Pond Street location is being called "Eye Q Optical 'Outlet.'"
