A year-and-a-half and a hurricane after opening, Luv My Vision Optique has closed down its 1702 Sheepshead Bay Road storefront.

The business opened in April 2012, and quickly set up a second location at 302 Brighton Beach Avenue in October.

The Brighton Beach storefront remains open.

Thanks to Rovshan and our friends at Arbuz for tipping us off to this.

In February we reported that Galit Couture, a bridal dress and evening wear designer that occupied the corner of 1702 Sheepshead Bay Road for more than a decade, “has packed up its frilly goods and high-tailed it over to Shat On Staten Island.”

Ned speculated that the location was freed up to become yet another “sushi restaurant. Perhaps a cell phone store. Maybe even a pharmacy!” Ding, ding, ding — incorrect.

In short time, the corner location was gutted and transformed into a bright and modern-looking eyeglass store called “Luv My Vision Optique.” According to the sign in their window, they’re also hiring, so if you’re seeking retail employment, give them a call at (718) 648-4200.

Welcome to the ’hood, Luv My Vision. We wish you all the best.

Galit Couture – a.k.a. Fashion Salon Galit – the bridal dress and evening wear designer at 1702 Sheepshead Bay Road, has packed up its frilly goods and high-tailed it over to Shat-On Staten Island.

The store had been there for more than a decade, but now the corner location is freed up for, oh, I don’t know, maybe a sushi restaurant. Perhaps a cell phone store. Maybe even a pharmacy! Lucky us!

The new Galit Couture can now be found at 1470 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island. You can contact them by calling (718) 646-8190.

Best of luck to the Galak family business in their new location.
