Eyemart Express opens at mall

Eyemart Express has opened a mini-store in Penn Square Mall. The 100-square-foot showroom features budget frames and lenses. Eyemart Express, based in Appleton, Wis., opened its first Oklahoma City store in 1993. “The mini stores give us the chance to prove that consumers don't have to pay ‘mall prices' for higher quality eyewear ... even if they insist on shopping there,” said founder Doug Barnes.
