EL PASO, Texas (March 30, 2016) – Bassett Place today announced that America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses will build a store at the shopping center on Magruder Street.

America’s Best retails a wide selection of designer eyeglass frames, contact lenses and eyeglass accessories.  Eye exams are available by an independent licensed optometrist, or clients may bring in an outside prescription.  Each America’s Best store is equipped with state-of-the-art optometric equipment to ensure that clients receive the best eye care available.

“The team at Bassett Place is pleased to expand its merchandise and service offerings,” stated Alejandra Contreras, general manager of Bassett Place.  “Eyewear and eye care at affordable prices will both be available at Bassett Place once America’s Best opens its doors.”

America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses will operate a 3,000-square-foot store in a new free-standing building to be constructed near the shopping center’s entrance on Magruder Street south of Petco.  The store is slated to open late this year.
