Local Eye Care Business Expands in Fruita
KREX News Room
FRUITA, Colo. A local Fruita business is expanding despite America's slow economic recovery.
VisualEyes Eyecare first opened its doors in Fruita almost 10 years ago, and today they are opening up a bigger location on East Aspen Avenue.
The eye care business’ owner says he is very fortunate to have the opportunity to expand in a down economy.
“We've continued to grow since 2004 when it opened, until now. Each year we're doing a little bit better and we just see that growth continuing as Fruita continues to grow as well,” says owner and optometrist Gary Quarnberg.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony was held at 11 a.m, and Quarnberg said they used the same ribbon they cut at the original location’s opening years ago in Saturday's ceremony.
Members from the community joined in to wish future success to the business.
