Style Without the Extra Cost

The Iconic History of Foster Grant

While most eye-care companies have a relatively bland history, Foster Grant is an American icon, having been one of the first major retailers to ever sell sunglasses. In the early 1900’s business partners Sam Foster and Bill Grant opened a shop on the infamous Atlantic City boardwalk selling women’s hair products. After trends shifted and business dropped, Foster Grant started to sell sunglasses to tourists, beach enthusiasts, and local trendsetters.

Prior to Foster Grant selling sunglasses, sunglasses were only used when people had overly sensitive eyes, and were not seen as glamorous or mysterious. With Foster Grant’s focus on improving style & the manufacturing process of sunglassess, they became popular among early adopters and celebrities who were commonly found on the boardwalk in the late 20’s and early 30’s. Once celebrities adopted the new sunglasses craze, the rest of the country followed suit, and the rest is history.

Foster Grants in Modern Times

Foster Grants have been an American staple ever since their invention in the late 20’s. In the 60’s, they were well known for the “Who’s that behind those Foster Grants” advertisements, and similar advertisements have been ran more recently as well. As Foster Grant developed as a brand, they decided to branch out, becoming more than just a sunglasses brand, but rather a comprehensive eye fashion brand. Nowadays, Foster Grant sells full lines of reading glasses as well as sunglasses fit for every lifestyle.
