Member Shout-Out!

Shout Out A SHOUT-OUT goes to Woodlawn Optical!

"I would like to give a Shout Out to Paul Kavanagh and the team at Woodlawn Optical on Main Street in downtown Bothell. They took their time to get me set up with a great pair of frames and lenses that were right for me.  They are the lightest, best fitting and best looking pair of glasses I have ever owned. I've received multiple compliments in a short period of time wearing them.  I've been wearing glasses most of my life and can easily say that Woodlawn Optical products and customer service are far above the rest!"  ~ Eric Schaffer, The Hop and Hound and Bothell resident
