About the Owner

Mark Crawley began working for Payless Optical in 1997 as an assistant. Mark found his direction and calling when he began to see the reaction on people’s faces when they could finally see and realized how much money they saved. It’s about helping people and providing a great pair of glasses for every budget. Mark went on to obtain his optician’s license in 2001 and became the manager of the store. Mark always has had the desire to own his own business. In 2009, Mark and the previous owner had the discussion about the future of the business. It was at that time, that Mark began to realize his dream was closer than ever. With a lot of prayer, 20 years of hard work and advice/support from his family and friends the time had come for a new chapter in Mark's life to begin - taking over the business. Mark is humbled by the opportunity and looks forward to making a difference in the community.
