    I like that it isn’t another restaurant, but we have Eye Central a block down and a MyEyeDr. two or three blocks further down. Seems like an odd addition.

      EyeCentral may be in need of some competition. I had a horrendous experience there where they made me four sets of glasses. It took all summer, only to have the last pair not work. I ended up getting a refund, having wasted months of my time trying to get a pair of glasses. On my many visits, though, I did get to see some angry customers who were having problems with glasses or experiencing poor service.

        My insurance doesn’t cover EyeCentral, but everyone I know who’s gone, really likes them. MyEyeDr. on the other hand….

    I, for one, am shocked that an artisanal olive oil store couldn’t support the lease of that storefront.

      If they had a robust online presence, I could see it working, but then again, if they had a robust online presence they wouldn’t really need a storefront.

        The owner moved to strictly online to spend more time with her hubby.

    Well, longtime and very happy customer of Dr. Fissell and Eye Central. Was hoping for something other than a chain optician.

      Can’t speak to the quality of Eye Central but Georgetown Optician isn’t really a chain. They’re family owned and only have three other locations (all in this area). I’ve been a customer at their 14th Street location and definitely found the service friendly and personalized.

    I loved Sapore. I was disappointed that they left. I bought so much olive oil there. Now I have to go to Georgetown to taste and buy. I still buy my favorites from Sapore online now.

    Excited Georgetown Optician is moving in! Definitely an upgrade over existing options.
