Shopko Optical Expands Eyewear Collection to Include Maui Jim Styles

February 10, 2021

Shopko Optical now offers new assortment of vibrant, tropical-themed sunglasses and eyeglasses

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Shopko Optical is excited to announce its partnership with Maui Jim, an American sunglasses and eyeglasses brand inspired by island life.

“We are looking forward to partnering with Maui Jim and offering its styles in our centers,” said Kirk Lauterback, Shopko Optical COO. “This partnership will ensure our patients have a variety of options – including a brand with vivid color selections, an excellent array of the most popular frame shapes, and above all, UV protection.”

Maui Jim sunglasses feature PolarizedPlus2® lens technology, which not only provides superior UV protection, but also enhances color and eliminates 99.9% of glare.

The Maui Jim brand is inspired by the beauty and culture of Maui, Hawaii, while spreading “aloha” through their frame’s vibrant colors. The brand’s frames also inspire patients to be confident in their style while simultaneously protecting their eyes from harmful UV rays.

“Maui Jim and Shopko Optical both have strong commitments to customer service and satisfaction, as well as clear visions of growth and service strategies. We could not be more excited to partner with such a highly regarded eyecare provider,” said Harry Rhodes, vice president of sales at Maui Jim. “Our partnership ensures that quality of service and customer values will be upheld, as Maui Jim expands distribution in Shopko locations throughout the United States.”

Maui Jim sunglasses and eyeglasses are now available at all Shopko Optical centers. To learn more about Shopko Optical’s partnership with Maui Jim and to view its wide selection of frames, visit shopko.com.
