Does anyone know what's going on with Bagley Vision on Bagley near 14th? The sign is out on the sidewalk, but every time I've driven by, the door is chained. It's the best place for cheap glasses!

I don't know about the glasses store, but the illegal underground afterhours techno club located in that building has been silent so far this spring. Yay!

I went to the afterhours place once.

Can't say that I'm sad to see it go.

Psewick,

It wasn't a techno club. Please don't associate that word with that place. Illegal underground afterhours club will do nicely. :-)

bagley vision moved from their location on bagley a few years ago to a location on library street downtown. about a year ago they again moved to bloomfield hills:

Bagley Optical, Inc., 4066 Telegraph Road, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302 Tel: (248) 723-4226

however, i couldn't tell you if they're still open there or not. they used to have a website, but it's not working anymore...

Bagley Vision and Bagley Optical are 2 different businesses owned by members of the same family. Bagley Optical was located on Library and moved to Bloomfield Hills. Bagley Vision remained on Bagley and never moved to Library.

George lives in the building, that's why I suggested just ringing the bell. DRM - Vision does the exam, Optical makes the glasses. I believe it's father and daughter.
