True Tales

Often You’re a Mobile Business Whether You Like It or Not

When you run unto clients out and about there is always something about their glasses to look at.

I recently retired; 38 years in same practice. Before the pandemic, I’d run into clients at concerts, movies, synagogue, or sporting events and they would always show me something about their glasses: “Am I cleaning them correctly?” “Is this hinge loose?” “My grandson grabbed them, are they straight on my face?” “Do these feel loose to you?” It’s like I was a celebrity. Once a stadium hotdog vendor asked me if I could tighten his glasses during a game! — Barry Merenstein, 20/20 Opticians, Pittsburgh, PA
