Eyemart Express Expands National Footprint to 42 States with First Tennessee Store

National optical retailer creates jobs, provides affordable optical solution with 230th location in Jackson

DALLAS — Eyemart Express, a leading national optical retailer known for providing affordable and high-quality prescription eyewear in as little as 30 minutes, is expanding its national footprint with the opening of its first store in Tennessee today, April 5. The new 3,500-square-foot store in Jackson is located at 1237 Vann Drive and marks the retailer’s 230th location across 42 states. The Texas-based optical retailer’s move into Tennessee will contribute to the local economy by creating jobs for residents and providing locals with accessible prescription eyewear.

“We are proud to bring our affordable and same-day optical solution to Tennessee and help the Jackson community see clearly in a safe manner,” says Michael Bender, Eyemart Express CEO. “In our current economy, consumers are pressed for time while looking for value when purchasing high-quality prescription eyewear. Our stores are positioned to make the glasses buying process easy for shoppers of all walks of life and budgets. We even send them home with quality, proper-fitting glasses on the same day with our on-site labs.”

Since 1990, Eyemart Express has provided a seamless customer experience with an emphasis on speed and convenience. All stores carry a selection of more than 2,000 frames for the whole family from brands such as Ray-Ban, Coach, Nike, and Disney. Eyemart Express stores are also outfitted with onsite labs and skilled lens technicians so that high-quality glasses can be ready in as little as 30 minutes. In addition, all frames come with a complimentary one-year warranty that covers any adjustments or breakages.

The optical retailer continues to operate with the highest safety standards in order to give customers peace of mind while shopping for glasses. Eyemart Express’ safety plan includes a mask requirement, limiting the number of people in stores at one time to allow for social distancing, and frequent cleaning of frames and store surfaces.

Affordable glasses and safe and speedy service are not the only things coming to Jackson through the opening of an Eyemart Express. “With our expansion, we also remain committed to enhancing the communities that we serve with employment opportunities,” says Bender.

Eyemart Express is contributing to Jackson’s economy by fostering new career paths at a time when many are looking for stable employment. Around a dozen jobs have been created, ranging from full- and part-time sales associates to lab technicians and licensed opticians. Eyemart Express offers a variety of training and development programs to cultivate career paths in the optical industry along with a competitive benefits package for all associates.

The store opening also brings the optical retailer’s 20 percent everyday discount programs to Tennessee for:

  • All veterans, retired, active- and in-active-duty military personnel and their families
  • All health care professionals and first responders in appreciation for their work on the front lines to battle COVID-19
  • School faculty and staff including teachers, coaches, bus drivers, janitors and others who work in schools.
