David Knowlton opened his business in 2003, and expanded with a storefront in 2009. He specializes in front connection eyewear.  " is original in the fact that we offer the most innovative eyewear on the market," he says.

Here are excerpts from his application for LocalShops1's 2014 Best in Biz Awards

"I got my start by attending a wholesale show in Atlanta and wearing a pair around my neck.  When people would ask about the glasses, I would give them a card and stated I would be in touch in a couple of weeks. I came home after the show and contacted the owner of the CliC Eyewear by searching the patent number. Once I made contact they were impressed with me and I started repping the state of Florida. Today I am the wholesale rep for CliC in 22 states and have a full time employee."

"Our customer is second to none. Because of our customers we are still going strong and we thank them at every opportunity, they are our sales force."
