MANILA, PHILIPPINES – OWNDAYS, one of the largest optical chains from Japan, launched at Estancia Mall on November 8, 2016. In attendance were Mr. Shuji Tanaka, CEO of OWNDAYS, and Mr. Vohne Yao, Managing Director of Sungears Sales Inc., along with several VIP guests from the media. Known for its quick “20-minute” processing time, 1,500 styles and “all-in-one” pricing system, OWNDAYS has been rapidly expanding globally, and has recently entered the Philippine market.
Starting from Php 2,900- Php 6,990 (lens included), the affordable yet high quality frames of OWNDAYS have gained huge local popularity leading to the opening of 8 locations as of the month. “We have hundreds of styles, but function is always at the heart of every pair,” shares Yao. “We have 20 brands under OWNDAYS, and each brand has its distinct characteristic.”
A New Experience
As you enter an OWNDAYS store, notice a huge difference from the traditional optical retailers in terms of the wide open concept store design, which allows customers to touch and try over a thousand different styles of frames freely. Customers can either choose to have their vision checked by the PRC Licensed Optometrist in the store, bring an existing prescription, or have their existing pair of glasses copied. OWNDAYS’ in-house PRC Licensed Optometrists use the latest optical machines to test your vision. After choosing your frames and having your eyes checked, you can bring home your OWNDAYS glasses in just 20 minutes.
The price packages on frames are inclusive of high quality multi-coated lenses. Customers who have higher “grades” need not worry as there are no additional charges for ultra-thin lenses. Since it is both practical and stylish to own more than one pair of glasses, OWNDAYS offers an additional 25% discount to all subsequent frames (applied to the cheaper pairs).
To further excite customers, OWNDAYS highlights one of its best-selling collections, AIR Ultem. The light-weight frames – which weigh only 9.4 grams – are made from ‘Ultem,” a flexible, incombustible and heat-resistant material that provides wide flexibility. Ultem is the same material used to make the spare parts of spacecrafts and airplanes, so you’re assured of its durability.
At OWNDAYS, you’ll discover an experience you won’t get from any other optical store. “Feel free to choose and try on any pair that fits your mood or lifestyle. Whether it’s basic and functional or stylish and fashionable, we have a pair for everyone,” ends Vohne.
