A new branch of America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses opened up in Marysville this month.

The business is located at the Gateway Center in central Marysville, at 3721 116th St. NE, Suite 213.

They plan to be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, while being closed on Sunday.

The national company is one the most common retailers meant primarily to meet glasses, contacts and eye exam needs.

“We’re one of the biggest optical retailers in the U.S.,” said Catalina Lou, the local district manager for America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses.

“We offer a huge selection of discounted frames and contact lenses,” she said.

Lou said that they aim for affordability when it comes to glasses and contacts.

“We try to offer the best in eye care and eyewear, but where it is affordable for everyone, especially for those who may not have been able to previously afford vision insurance,” she said.

She said that they try to offer a good value for the eye care and eyewear in the stores with "everyday prices."

The Marysville location has been open for approximately four weeks now and opened near the beginning of November.

Client feedback has been positive, said Lou.

“It’s been really nice. Every day we get more eye exams coming in and the feedback has been really good from the community. They’re happy we’re here for those who do know what we offer,” she said.

Lou said it has been nice that many locals are glad to have a closer location for them now.

“People are happy that we’re here because they don’t have to drive as far north as Bellingham or down to Lynnwood to fix their eye care needs,”  she said.

America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses now has 14 locations across the state of Washington.

“We have stores as far south as Vancouver and as far north as in Bellingham,” said Lou.

Lou said the new store looks forward to being part of the community and serving locals with glasses or contact needs.

“We’re really happy to be here and happy to be able to offer affordable eye care for everybody, especially for those in need who have been looking for a place like this,” she said.
