Now Optics, the parent company of leading affordable eyewear brands My Eyelab and Stanton Optical, celebrated the completion of its new corporate office in Delray Beach, Florida. The new Now Optics corporate office will offer a more modern, state-of-the-art workspace that will support Information Technology, Merchandising, Marketing, Retail Operations, and more as the brand portfolio grows nationally. Located at 1615 S. Congress Avenue, the new company headquarters is expected to bring 45 jobs to the Delray Beach metropolitan area.
The new Now Optics workplace spans 15,000 square feet and features a showroom for the hi-tech hybrid eye exams provided by Physicians Eyecare Group and its exclusive collection of eyewear, including an on-site lab where glasses can be made in 15 minutes. The showroom will be an innovation zone to test and improve the eye care experience as Now Optics continues to deliver on its mission of making eye care easy. Buyers and consumers can get an in-person look at the latest eyewear trends and industry-leading transformative solutions.
The new Now Optics workplace celebrates post-pandemic trends toward a more open-concept workspace design that encourages collaboration and teamwork, as well as individual focus time. The office brings in natural light and creates an open, transparent workspace that aligns with the company’s ICARE values (Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability, Respect, and Empowerment). Keeping in line with the new way of working among the latest office trends, Now Optics invested over $800,000 in renovating the office space to champion ideation and curiosity paired with themed meeting spaces, a photo studio, and huddle rooms to ignite a strong level of inspiration and creativity.
The corporate office will house staff that supports seven departments and 45 professionals for 290 My Eyelab and Stanton Optical stores across 29 states nationwide. “We are thrilled to open our Now Optics corporate headquarters in Delray Beach, an area that will provide us with the talent and opportunity to plant the growth initiatives for the company’s next phase of our development. It took three years to find the ideal location, perfectly situated between Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Delray Beach is one of the top business markets for forward-thinking and educated professionals, making it a perfect location to grow our Now Optics foundation,” said Daniel Stanton, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Now Optics. “We want our new headquarters to inspire new technology-driven solutions and ensure that our brands’ potential will translate into accessible eye care for all communities across the United States.”
Under the leadership of Daniel Stanton, Now Optics is ranked in the top 15 on Vision Monday’s Top 50 U.S. Optical Retailers.
