March is here and with it comes one of our absolute favourite days of the year, International Women’s Day! At Merivale Vision Care, International Women’s Day is super important to us. We celebrate it in a major way every single year without a doubt. As a women-led small local business, we feel it is absolutely critical to support women both in business and in our community.
When we celebrate International Women’s Day, we wear purple, have fun, and make sure that we are giving back to our community. Tomorrow, Tuesday March 8th, is our big celebration! We will be donating $25 for every pair of glasses or sunglasses sold tomorrow to our amazing friends at the Zonta Club of Ottawa who is the driving forces in advocating and supporting women.
The Zonta Club of Ottawa is an organization whose mission is to empower women through service and advocacy. Zonta works hard to elevate the status of women both locally and internationally, and they have been in the service of doing so for 92 years! Zonta monitors laws and policies and their impact on women, as well as participates in hearings and public meetings with local politicians and administrators to ensure the consideration of women’s interests. Zonta also hosts speakers and panels to raise awareness about issues affecting women at the local level. The Club also recognizes community service and provides bursaries and awards to promising young women in a variety of fields of study.
When you come in to see us tomorrow, make sure you wear purple because we will be! When you’re here and selecting your new glasses, you will get access to our exclusive Spring Spectacular offers. Not only are we continuing our previous promotion of 50% off specialty computer lenses when you buy a frame for another month, but you can also select your second pair from our limited-edition designer frames and get your complete pair of glasses at a flat rate!
Any second pair selected from our Spring Spectacular frame collection is just $150 for single vision or $300 for progressives. We’re not kidding when we say that you will save hundreds on a second pair with our Spring Spectacular. Don’t need a prescription but need some fabulous new sunglasses? Simply head to our online boutique and shop for your new shades from the comfort of your couch. You’ll be styling in your new specs and shades all while helping to support the Zonta Club of Ottawa. If you haven’t booked your eye exam or glasses yet, be sure to book your appointment so we can help you see your best. We hope that you have a fun and uplifting International Women’s Day celebrating all the important women in your life.
