Went out glasses shopping last night as I am now officially old and need new glasses with bi-focals. . .
Got quite a shock up at BJ's. I was pricing a new pair of glasses at the eye docs and WITH insurance the glasses were about $270 and the sunglasses were about $420. . . Total about $690. . . So I said OK, let me look around and get back to you.
I should have known there was a problem the way the sales person kept telling me to make sure I compare apples to apples, and that they had the lowest cost. . . . that is not a good sign folks. Anyway I go to BJ's which is where I got my current glasses and give him the script and tell him what I want. In a few moments and the wife's help I have picked out frames and all and we are done. . . Total cost for both pairs of glasses - $270.
Kinda makes you wonder how some people stay in business when their costs are that much off. . . .
