THE UNOPTICAL STORE 1010 University Ave., Ste. C109 (619) 955-5369 theunoptical.com


Visit theunoptical.com, and you’ll quickly realize it isn’t your typical eyeglass store. The UnOptical was born from an idea that’s alien to most mere humans: “Eyewear can be cool and affordable.”


Owners Jim Wojcicki and Jean-Rene Dunn, partners in both work and life, strive to create an environment that’s easy to shop in. There aren’t any pushy sales people, and we give honest opinions, “Ma’am, that’s a great look,...for street walking!” Our store is filled with products (more than 3,000 units), considerably more than your typical doctor’s office or mall store. Jim listens to customers’ needs and wants and then buys frames and sunglasses accordingly. At the UnOptical, you’ll see everything from handcrafted product (cha-ching) to the brands everyone loves—Ray-Ban, Gucci, Tom Ford—and many more. There’s even “the Big Package,” a frame ’n’ lens package that starts at $113, with more than 300 hundred frames to choose from, so style can be affordable. Heck, you might even try something new and different at that price! Jim has more than 20 years of retail optical experience as a former corporate mukity-muck for Lenscrafters and Sunglass Hut. “One great thing about the corporate world is… I’m no longer in it,” he explains. But he learned a great deal about the business, even though he prefers having his own store. “What do I like most about it?” he says. “That’s easy—getting to know my customers. I’ve met some wonderful people.” March 17 is UnOptical’s first anniversary. If you haven’t checked it out yet, come in and create a new you by changing your style. There’s even an independent optometrist’s office inside—Dr Todd Hebert Optometry, providing comprehensive eye exams and contact lenses.
