Eye2Eye Opticians: Setting a long-term vision for Sunglass Hub
Mumbai-based Amar Shah started his retail eyewear journey with Eye2Eye Opticians in 2005. Back then, he openly admits that he had limited knowledge and every lesser understanding of how the retail business operated. “But as people say business teaches you everything. It took us almost 6 to 8 months to streamline everything and then we had a better understanding of the retail industry,” recalled Amar.
Following the first outlet’s success, he started another store specialising in ophthalmic spectacles and vision care products in 2009. Six years later, he opened Sunglass Hub, which focused only on sunglasses. For his next growth phase, Amar Shah, owner of Eye2Eye tells Retail Networks that he wants to concentrate on expanding Sunglass Hub’s footprint by opening at least four more outlets within two years.
To do this, he plans to engage with like-minded franchisee partners who are willing to invest INR 25 lakh to INR 50 lakh on a store, depending on its location.
