I went to Hallmark at the recommendation of a friend. I had my eyes examined and then proceeded to order eyeglasses.
The doctor was great he was very professional and I felt he had my eye health at the top of the list. He never seemed like he was just recommending things I did not need just to up the sales.
I then went to look at frames and found several I liked. Lisa the helped me go through all the frames I had picked and helped me find a pair that fit great and were flattering to my face. Something I am not very good at. If I see something I like I have trouble determining if it likes me.
I have gotten many complements on my glasses and I am very happy with them. I am not always kind to my glasses and have stopped in a few times for a free adjustment to keep them lined up correctly on my face. No fault of the glasses just my general mistreatment of them.
Great frame selection, and even better customer service. I really don't like box stores, and this Mom and Pop is great. They know their products and listen to what customers want. I got exactly what I wanted, and didn't feel like I was being up sold on products I didn't need. A+ for products and service!
I absolutely love Hallmark Opticians! I went there for the first time 6 years ago and received friendly,enthusiastic, no-pressure assistance with my exam and lenses. After several years it is time for new glasses and I am returning to Hallmark! I had looked into other companies and never had an experience even close to that at Hallmark. They are patient, helpful, professional, and fun to work with - Oh, and they are right down the street! I can't say enough. You get what you pay for and Hallmark Opticians surpassed my expectations long ago!
On a Whim – I went to hallmark on a whim and a suggestion from binyons when they couldn't fix my old glasses. Lisa, the optician, was fantastic. She welded my frames back together and then helped me get into see their doctor and get a current prescription for glasses. Their doctor was great and gave me good tips for keeping my eyes healthy for the length of my life. When it was over, Lisa and the front desk girl (Michele?) helped me find a pair of glasses i LOVE. They wern't high pressure sales, which i really liked and they were very reasonably priced. I've sent a few of my friends and family memebrs in their direction. Best place in town by far! And I would know, I've ALWAYS worn glasses!!!
Great service & cool eyewear – i discovered Hallmark Opticians while waiting for a bus one evening which was running late (the bus stop is right outside their door) and decided to go in and just look around. One hour later, after trying on SEVeral frames, i had selected the pair i've now had for the past 5 years, set up an eye exam, and was on my way. The staff: Lisa, Chuck (co-owners) and now Michelle (receptionist/billing) have always been super friendly and helpful, they've got a GREAT selection of frames (i looked better than the model in mine), and best of all, they've always been willing to take the time to repair or adjust all the frames i've brought in to them over the years, even if they weren't purchased there. My eye exam has also always been thorough and professional, and the prices competitive--it's worth it even though i don't have vision insurance. i just stopped in this week, saw some super cute Vera Wangs that i can't wait to wear...i'll send a picture when i get them...! Thanks, guys!
Friendly & efficient service for frame repair – What a nice change of pace to go into a place of business for the first time and be greeted with a smile! My titanium frame had come apart on one side and I was at a loss what to do. Through Google and Citysearch I was able to find Hallmark Opticians who can weld and repair frames like mine. I brought them in one afternoon and they were ready a few hours later. The cost was half what I was expecting to pay, based on internet pricing. Michelle, the front desk person, and Lisa, the co-owner and master welder, were great. Made me feel like I was an old customer. Thanks!
Hallmark Optical is the best!! – I have been going there for 37 years. From long hair and wire rims to gray hair and bifocals. I have another Medical insurance for Optical but choose Hallmark because they can fit you correctly, have quality control and quick order turn around. If you are not satisfied for Any reason they will take the extra step to correct.
Best Optician in Portland – I have been coming to Hallmark Opticians for the past 10 years. Lisa, the Manager, is one of the best opticians I have ever worked with. Chuck is the very best frame fitter I have ever experienced. I have gone to many opticians to have my frames straightened, fitted, etc. and there is no one like Chuck. At Hallmark Opticians all who work there are always very helpful and give me all the time I need. They give me honest, professional advice and are well worth the 15 mile drive from Vancouver, WA to Portland, OR. I recommend Hallmark Opticians to everyone.
My first glasses – I had to get my first set of glasses this month and I found Hallmark in the Hollywood Star news paper. I went to the shop and was greeted by very friendly staff. Not only the opticians, but even the receptionists were overly friendly and tried to help me pick out some glasses. I decided on some very cool frames. I took my girlfriend there, and she was treated with the same great customer service I was. I was very pleased with the staff and selection of glasses frames Hallmark Opticians had to offer.
I am for sure coming back when time comes for another exam.
