Beginning in 1998 Specs Around Town brought optical services and eyewear to clients at their home, workplace or wherever a client requested. Julie's bright blue Volkswagen beetle sporting her BUGEYZ4 license plate quickly became a distinct and conspicuous part of the Bloomington-Normal landscape. In the fall of 2001 Specs Around Town Optical Boutique opened its doors at 317 N. Center in Downtown Bloomington.
Specs Around Town features over 50 eyewear collections many exclusive and not found anywhere else in central Illinois. Our customers come from Peoria, Springfield, and Champaign IL as well as out of state and around the world - simply because the selection is unique. Specs also features jewelry, watches and accessories. Our friendly team of optical wizards (opticians) help clients select the lenses and frames best suited for their prescriptions and personal style. Our wizards have over 90 combined years of experience. Specs fills all eyeglass prescriptions and also do frame adjustments and repairs.
