70 Years in Business

“For the first 23 years, Rx Optical operated from a single location in Kalamazoo. Now, 70-years after that first optical shop opened for business, there are a total of 53 Rx Optical shops including three in Berrien County as they celebrate their 70th Anniversary in business.

Thanks to their growth over the past 47 years, Rx Optical is now the second-largest independently owned and operated optical retailer in the nation…and the oldest such retailer based in Michigan.”

70 Years in Business

Leading eye-care provider, Rx Optical, opened two state-of-the-art offices in Breton Village (Grand Rapids), Mich. and Ann Arbor, Mich. in early May to serve their growing patient base. In Fall 2016 the company opened offices on Drake Road in Kalamazoo, Mich. and Knapp’s Crossing in Grand Rapids, Mich. Rx has 53 locations throughout Michigan and Indiana. New and existing locations provide eye glass lens manufacturing and fitting, medical patient care, eye-care solutions for adults and children, contact lens fitting, adjustments and repair. The new offices are located at 1858 Breton Rd. SE, Grand Rapids, Mich., and 3275 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor, Mich. This is the second Rx Optical office to open in Ann Arbor.

“From our beginning in 1947 in Kalamazoo, we have expanded at a measured pace, never interested in sacrificing our commitment to our patients to a demand for growth,” said George Jepson, Rx Optical Vice President of Marketing “Steady and sure, our steps forward have come when we could afford to responsibly commit to cities and towns which were being underserved – markets where patient names had become numbers. That’s where we have always seen the opportunity to instill care and value back into a service and products that we see as pretty darn important to the lives of our patients.”
