Our continued presence on this list is notable in the midwest
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Vision Monday, the leading name in optical news, has named Clarkson Eyecare the 17th most profitable optical retailer in the nation in its annual Top 50 issue. Ranked #19 in 2009 and #18 in 2010, the company has continually shown its ability to grow and diversify.
Clarkson Eyecare continued its expansion this year across the St. Louis metro area, opening five new offices in 2010. “Our continued presence on this list is notable in the midwest,” says Bill Jehling, President and CEO. “Clarkson Eyecare is the only independent optical company in St. Louis on Vision Monday’s annual listing, and the fact that we have been able to maintain growth on this list for so many years is outstanding.”
Industry giants such as Luxottica and Wal-Mart continued to dominate the list. The presence of local companies such as Clarkson Eyecare on such a prestigious list is an honor in the industry. Vision Monday ranks the country’s top optical retailers based on their revenues in the 2010 calendar year. U.S. sales figures for the Vision Monday Top 50 include revenues from both company-owned and franchised locations (if applicable), managed vision care revenues and shares of doctors’ or laser surgery fees.
