  • Year-End Tax Tips for Retailers of Fashion Sunglasses


    You may not be thinking year-end taxes given that it is only September at the time of this writing, but the end of the year is less than three months away. Making matters worse is the coming holiday season. A month from now you will be starting the busiest retail season of the year. That means you need to start thinking about tax issues now – while you have the time and a clear head. This isn'...

  • 4 Accessories for Wholesale Sunglasses and Why You Should Sell Them


    More than 95% of our inventory consists of wholesale sunglasses. Let's face it, selling wholesale sunglasses has made Olympic Eyewear the company it is today. But we do have a small section of our inventory devoted to accessories. We feel these items are every bit as important as the sunglasses themselves. As a retailer, selling our accessories is an opportunity to both boost your sales and prov...

  • Tips for Addressing Excess Inventory

  • Enhance Your Summer Sales at the Flea Market


    In a business like ours, it is normal for retailers who purchase from us to have multiple ways of turning around and selling the products to customers. Some of our retailers have opened up their own boutiques or mall kiosks. Still others prefer to sell exclusively online. This post is geared toward the latter group. The intent is to encourage them to consider enhancing their summer sales at a lo...

  • 3 Great Locations for Seasonal Eyewear Sales


    We sell a lot of sunglasses in bulk, at wholesale prices, to retailers who sell them year-round. But we also know that some of our customers are seasonal sellers. These are folks who sell sunglasses part time to supplement their full-time jobs. We think that's great. Owning your own business is a wonderful opportunity whether you do it full- or part-time. For many of our part-time sellers, summer ...

  • Affordable Ways to Grow Your Retail Eyewear Business


    Olympic Eyewear has been in business for quite a few years now. Rest assured we did not open our wholesale operation and find instant success overnight. Very few companies do. We built our business slowly, over many months and years. That is the nature of the beast. The same thing applies to retail. If you are an Olympic customer feeling frustrated that your business isn't growing as fast as you...

  • When the Weatherman Says 'Break Out Your Sunglasses'


    Most of us in the sunglasses industry find it hard to get excited about the weather during the winter months. So by the end of February or the beginning of March, we long to hear the weatherman step up and say, "get ready to break out your sunglasses tomorrow." Statements like that are music to our ears. Unless you live in a warm weather climate that actually encourages people to get outdoors du...

The beard has thrown a monkey wrench into the classic relationship between the shape of one's face and the sty...
