Last November 8, OWNDAYS opened its flagship shop at Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall, and here’s what the latest and largest OWNDAYS store has to offer:

1. Massive, modern space

With an area of 280 square meters, OWNDAYS SM Megamall is the biggest optical shop in the Philippines and the brand’s largest store in the world. The store’s expansive space features chic and modern furnishing, incorporating natural elements such as wood, trees, and light.

The lounge by the counter provides comfortable space for customers waiting for their exams or eyewear.

2. Freedom to fit and try

Walking into the flagship OWNDAYS shop, you can find the frames displayed in open shelves and modules. Eyewear brands available in the store are AIR Ultem, AIR Ultem Classic, Graph Belle, John Dillinger, and OWNDAYS PC. You can easily pick one, try it on, and check how you look on the various mirrors in the store.

3. Specialized sections

Some of highlight parts of the flagship store are the kids section and the sunglasses section. The kids section where you can find the Junni collection, the brand’s small-sized and colorful eyewear line designed for kids.

4. Expert assistance

OWNDAYS SM Megamall has three refraction rooms instead of the usual two. This ensures that the store can accommodate more customers and have your glasses ready 20 minutes after payment. PRC-licensed optometrists facilitate the eye exams using OWNDAY’s state-of-the-art equipment in refraction.

At the center of the shop is the Spectacle Assembling Room. Through its glass walls you can see the two edging machines being operated by trained optical technicians.

5. Simple price system

Unlike traditional optical shops, where prices vary depending on the frames and lenses you choose, OWNDAYS’ prices are already inclusive of the frame, the ultra-thin multi-coated lenses, and eye exam. Their prices start as low as P1,990 and goes up to P6,990. Plus, all OWNDAYS frames lenses come with one-year warranty and lifetime cleaning and maintenance services.
