McGee Renews Licensing Agreement for Vera Bradley Eyewear

MARIETTA, Ga.—The McGee Group and Vera Bradley, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRA) have renewed a multi-year licensing agreement for the continued production of Vera Bradley branded eyewear and sunwear.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Vera Bradley,” said Wayne McGee, CEO of the McGee Group. “We have created a personal bond of friendship with everyone at Vera Bradley, and appreciate that we both have the same cause near and dear to our hearts: finding a cure for breast cancer.”

The McGee Group will continue supporting the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer, donating a portion of all McGee Group Vera Bradley sales to breast cancer research.

In summer 2011, the McGee Group launched the Vera Bradley Kids collection, extending Vera Bradley’s classic colors and designs to children. The McGee Group plans to expand the brand’s sun collection in 2013 with new styles and lens colors and to continue with the popular optical and Girlfriends collections.

“The McGee Group is a perfect fit for Vera Bradley in style, quality and culture. We are thrilled to continue our relationship,” concluded Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, Vera Bradley co-founder.
