St. Patrick’s Day on Main Street


While most people think of green beer, Irish Car Bombs and Jameson when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, on Main Street, independents took the opportunity to put an Irish spin on their businesses. In Optical Land, special sales, promotions, memes on social media and outfits were all a part of the celebration yesterday.

The ladies of Unique Eye Optique, located in Albertson, New York decided to spread the luck of the Irish by incorporating some green into their outfits. In Texas, Optique Austin marked down 100 frames from every line they carry, with 35 percent to 50 percent off the frames. The store was also offering green shamrock spritzers with fresh ingredients because nothing complements a good sale like a cold drink.

North Carolina’s 4 Eyes Optometry decided to spread some virtual cheer with some lucky, four leaf clover “sunglasses.” Over at the Hicks Brunson Eyewear, the staff also decided to incorporate some green into their wardrobe by subtly celebrating St. Patrick with some hidden green socks.
