The new PineCone Vision Center in Sartell will host a ribbon-cutting and welcome ceremony Thursday, June 18 at 2180 Troop Drive, just off of Pinecone Road S.
The ribbon cutting will take place at 3 p.m. followed by the grand-opening celebration until 7 p.m.
Everyone is welcome.
Visitors will have a chance to see the state-of-the-art business, learn how eyeglasses are made, participate in fashion-colored contact lens demonstrations and take park in vision screenings.
There will be food and refreshments served, and visitors can register to win prizes, which include an iPad, a Kindle, a Garmin Vivofit and more.
“This is an exciting time in PineCone Vision Center’s history,” said owner and medical director Dr. Nicholas Colatrella. “We are delighted to share it with our family, friends, staff and all our wonderful patients who have made us such a success.”
Thanks to the new building, the vision center, vision therapy and rehabilitation center will be housed in the same place to eliminate confusion and maximize convenience. Ten examination rooms will enable five doctors and 14 staff members to provide personalized, professional care. The larger facility will house newer equipment and more-advanced medical technology.
