Some local businesses expand faster than others, and Luv My Vision Optique, the high-end eyewear vendor that opened at 1702 Sheepshead Bay Road in April, wasted no time: they opened a second location in Brighton Beach in September.
We got our first glance of it last week when we snapped this photo of their new storefront at 302 Brighton Beach Avenue. The business celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting on September 14.
Good to see local businesses doing well enough to expand so quickly. Way to go, Luv My Vision, and good luck on the new venture.

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.
