General Vision Services
During the postwar 1950s, two veterans who sought to provide exceptional vision care for labor organizations established General Vision Services—earning it the slogan "the optical company with the union label." Today, it operates as a third-party vision-care provider, helping customers from the tri-state and retirement areas to receive ocular care and select from more than 1,000 designer frames in myriad shapes, colors, and scratch-and-sniff scents. Visitors also benefit from free parking.
