Italian Eyewear … New to Coral Gables

 

Coral Gables is now home to Italian Eyewear.  The designer sunglass boutique at 204 Aragon  (just off of Ponce de Leon by Sushi Maki)  opened it’s Gables storefront in November 2009.  Still without signage, the wholesale distributor  has expanded from it’s former Miami International Airport location, and is offering discounted pricing on designer sunglasses – Chanel, Bulgary, Gucci, Dior, Prada…

 The newcomer to the Gables is competing with larger local and international chains for a niche market… the high-end consumer looking for discounted pricing.
