Franklin Street, a full-service real estate firm, announced today that its retail tenant services’ division represented and secured a lease for a 3,200-square-foot space for Florida-based My Eyelab, an optical retail store. My Eyelab is located in the South Point Shopping Center at 6735 Jonesboro Road in Morrow, Georgia, and ideally adjacent to the regional mall, Southlake Mall, that will help attract customers to the center.
The store celebrated its grand opening in late September. This is one of the first three My Eyelab locations in Georgia and the company anticipates opening 17+ new stores across the Atlanta metro area.
“The execution of this lease signals a strong desire from landlords to continue recruiting medical tenants to occupy street-level retail centers,” said Bob Kane, director of retail tenant representation for Franklin Street’s Atlanta office. “We had to compete heavily with another interested tenant, but in the end, our team was effective in showing the landlord how essential My Eyelab was to the success of the overall center. Medical tenants are sought after because they are typically recession-proof, and buildout and parking needs are simpler. We’re excited to be a part of this brand’s first foray into the metro Atlanta market.”
Founded in 2013, My Eyelab is one of the fastest growing full-service teleconsulting and retail optical centers in the nation. With the mission to provide quality eyeglasses and expert eye care services, My Eyelab has become a leader in the eye health industry by developing an accessible alternative to overpriced eye care services.
“We’re thrilled to expand the My Eyelab brand into Georgia, in particular the flourishing metro Atlanta and Clayton County area,” said Zain Attawala at My Eyelab. “As a sought-after medical service provider and affordable vision care option, we’re confident that our Morrow location will fill a vital niche and attract an expansive customer base, providing My Eyelab a model location in a bustling corridor as we continue our expansion throughout the market.”
