Earlier this week I was invited to check out the new Crosseyes store in Nottingham, based just of the main market square on Friar Lane, it is in a great location. Originating from Denmark, the concept behind this glasses store is very simple but I think it’s a great idea, you know exactly what you are getting before you have even had your appointment. Having worn glasses for as long as I can remember I know what it is like to be stung by added extras from when I brought my last pair, where I felt a little limited on choice, apparently I have expensive taste and always seem to pick the most expensive pair in the shop. But you don’t have to worry about that with Crosseyes as all their frames are the same price and your eye test is included in the overall cost.
Here is a look at their set pricing, they have actually recently lowed their pricing structure too –
With plenty of choice from styles to lenses you can’t go wrong, there is something for everyone especially if you are looking for a shape a little different to most. You can also chose your lense shade too if you are after a pair of prescription sunglasses. On arrival you are met by Indy the owner of the Nottingham branch, who instantly makes you feel welcome and at ease who will test you eye sight and offer advice on different styles without the pressure and rush to choose, it is a lot more of a personal service which I think is really important as you are making quite a big purchase that most people keep for at least the next 2 years.
The store itself is bright and welcoming, the glasses are displayed around the room on individual shelves so you can see the different styles clearly, and we got a sneak peek at the latest collection which had some really nice styles, from wooden frames to brighter colours. The pair below are definitely my favourite!
Thanks again for a great event and our lovely gift bags! I will definitely be visiting again soon, to find out more and book your appointment you can visit their website here – Crosseyes Nottingham.
