Longtime State Street shop plans move

After 40 years on State Street, Madison Optometric Center, currently located at 512 State St., is moving, according to a release from the company. The shop will reopen at City Station, 658 W. Washington Ave. with the new name, Madison Optical Shop.

Owner Lynne Derra states the “decline of State Street” is one of the reasons for the move. The pandemic shutdowns, the damage to the area this summer, and other issues also influenced the decision. The new full-service optical boutique is slated to open on Feb. 9.
