PALM HARBOR, Fla.--()--Visionworks, the largest wholly owned U.S.-based optical retailer, today announced its activation at the 2013 Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank. The event, which takes place March 11-17 at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course in Palm Harbor, FL, is the latest event for Visionworks as the Official Eyewear Retailer of the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour.
“Visionworks has convenient locations throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area, which, in addition to offering the highest quality in eye care and eyewear, provide hundreds of jobs to the community”
The event sponsorship precedes the San Antonio-based retailer’s 2013 redesign of its 13 Visionworks stores in the Tampa/St. Petersburg/Sarasota region. Brighter in layout and appearance, the enhanced stores will offer a larger selection of contemporary eyewear styles at a great value and with even better service. It’s the culmination of Visionworks’ “A Better You” brand promise: ‘the most frames, the best people and the right prices.’
“Visionworks has convenient locations throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area, which, in addition to offering the highest quality in eye care and eyewear, provide hundreds of jobs to the community,” Jim Eisen, president of Visionworks, said. “We are excited to participate in the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank and welcome the opportunity to get more involved in and support the community through this event.”
Visionworks associates will be on-site during tournament week at the Tampa Bay Championship Expo Center, providing free vision screenings and eye health information as well as a “family of eyewear” giveaway. Event goers can stop by the Visionworks booth located in the Tampa Bay Times Fan Zone behind the 18th green.
“Visionworks is committed to making a difference in the communities we serve. Our partnership with the PGA TOUR provides welcome opportunities to be connected to events that support some of the country’s most deserving charities,” Eisen said.
