Have you been to Orange Circle Optometry yet? Well, it’s been 5 years since this husband and wife duo, Alex and Ly, took over the business in Old Towne Orange and what better to celebrate than 5 successful years in business! We met up with our friend Alex to find out how they’re celebrating and why the company means so much to them.
What’s this celebration we keep mentioning? If you’re a patient of Alex and Ly’s, you can stop by the office anytime and you’ll get a free gift bag filled with silly items such as an eyeball, popcorn, and a customized Orange Circle Optometry cleaning cloth for your glasses! They’re fun, quirky items for their beloved clients and friends, so be sure to stop by and grab one!
Alex and Ly aren’t planning on moving away anytime soon, so don’t worry! They love Old Towne Orange way too much! In fact, they’d ultimately love to move into a bigger space that’s still in Old Towne Orange. A growing business is a feat to be proud of, and we are definitely proud of the spectacle they’re making in OTO.
Do you know what makes them want to stay here in Old Towne Orange? You! Alex couldn’t express how much his favorite part about working in OTO was all the friendly neighbors. Even when interviewing him, he ran into some patients and hit off a conversation. Alex told us about how happy it made him to be able to walk around towne and talk to everyone. He loves being part of such a strong community. Even when he gets a new patient, by the time they leave, they’re enveloped into the family. (As patients of his ourselves here at I Heart, we can attest to the trueness of this, and we love it!)
As we’re sure you’ve seen on Instagram, they have a new collection of vinyl eye glasses. Yes, they are made out of real vinyl records! So we had to ask what inspired such a unique idea and Alex told us it was their love for music that gave them the idea to bring the trend of vinyl eye glasses to their business. How cool is that?
And if you’re wondering what new additions are on the way besides the 5-year celebration and vinyl eye glasses…Alex and Ly are expecting their first baby! We’re really excited for them and can’t wait to see the new addition to the family! If you’re a spectacle-wearing local, make sure to stop on by Orange Circle Optometry and say Hi. Meet Alex and Ly, and become their newest client, they’ll take care of you as family and that’s what community is all about folks!
