Upscale Optical/Optometry Practice for Sale in North End of Tacoma, WA

05/23/2018

This optical boutique is located in a well-established neighborhood in North End Tacoma. The area is continually growing with lots of new restaurants and businesses and is locat4ed near major highways, public transportation, and the beautiful Point Defiance Park. Easy access from main roads to a dedicated parking lot with ample spaces makes it easy for customers to come in. Customers in the neighborhood are very loyal and know the value of an independent practice. The business was established in 1957, and owned by the current optician for 17 years. There is a spacious dispensary with about 700 frames on display, with lots of natural light from large windows. Also included: one exam room, a contact lens room ready to be converted to an exam room if needed, a kitchen, and a private bathroom. Seller is ready to retire but is willing to assist in the transition if needed. The business is perfect for an optician or an optometrist to take over. Space is leased part-time to an optometrist and an ocular prosthetic company, and both may be willing to stay. Both practices benefit the optical by bringing in more patients who are in need of glasses.
