Shopping for Glasses Online is a Safe Alternative during COVID-19

5 March 2020

Illumuniata Eyewear online eyeglasses store is a convenient method to shop during coronovirus period.

We are just as concerned about the COVID-19, new coronavirus in Toronto as everyone else. We take precautions and do our best to provide a safe and enjoyable shopping experience at our store. We clean the surfaces with alcohol and keep anti-bacterial soap on display, which we use often. We wash our hands more than usual. 

During the SARS epidemic, our store was located at the Sherway Gardens Mall. We survived it there, and I remember it was tough. With so much traffic to the mall, it was hard not to be concerned. Luckily, we have relocated across the street to strip-mall-plaza, where all traffic to our store is directly related to buying glasses, so it's much smaller than during SARS.

My personal shopping experience has been adjusted lately. For example, I shop for food less often and buy more each time. I certainly, don't go overboard on stockpiling for a year ahead, like some people. I started to avoid large stores.

Nevertheless, it's springtime, and it's a high season for shopping for sunglasses. We have new stock of pretty much every brand's spring collection and can't wait to show you. Buying from a smaller store should give you confidence and a safe feeling. Especially, you don't need to walk through the long mall hallway to get to us. Just park your car and walk right in. 

Shopping for glasses online is another excellent option to avoid virus human spread. Our website has catalogs of entire eyeglasses collection of every brand name that we carry. You can browse the styles, pick what you like, and order online. Shipping to Canada and the USA is free. You can pick up your purchase in person as well. Since you know where we are located, you can always come back to exchange or adjust your new glasses.

We hope this pandemic will pass soon, and we all can enjoy the upcoming summer season. Keep healthy, keep safe, and don't forget to shop for your new glasses at Illuminata Eyewear.
