The past few weeks have been busy at Crown. The spring season is in full swing now with all of its glory. There has been plenty of rain, sunshine, and warmer weather! It’s the perfect season to sport your new favorite designer sunglasses! We have also hosted our favorite event with local chambers – Business After Hours. We love the opportunity to get to know members of the communities we provide eyecare too. These events always make for a great evening of networking, food, drinks and fun.

In March, we hosted a Business After Hours at our Oakville Location with the South County Chamber of Commerce.

Here are some pictures of the highlights:

Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting a “Biz Brew” event at our Lindenwood Location with the Greater St Charles Chamber of Commerce.

It was another fun evening with the wonderful local community. We had delicious food, great conversations and lots of laughs during the Eyewear Makeover Competition (where chamber members pick out a pair of frames they want, stand up to tell a “sob story” of why they need new glasses and everyone votes to determine the winner). We heard such compelling stories that we had to pick TWO winners!

Here are some highlights from the event:
