“Open concept” optical stores have received strong demand from the public in Malaysia with its unique ‘stress-free’ experience which encourages consumers to try on and feel the eyewear products without being approached / ’harassed’ by shop assistants.
“This is precisely Whoosh’s edge which gives a sense of “freedom, space and openness” that appeal to younger generation consumers with high fashion consciousness, said Dato’ Liaw, CEO of Focus Point.

The affordable eyewear packages are something consumers can appreciate as well, especially in a highly-tensed economic environment. A quick turnaround time with, for example, spectacles being ready within half an hour to an hour, has also enhanced the shopping experience for consumers.
