It’s nice to see a new optical shop in town, and in charming Linden Hills no less.

You might say that love is at the core of Julie Hansen’s new Linden Hills store, Owl Optical. Long before she and her husband opened Owl, Hansen was working part-time at the original Spectacle Shoppe while at college. One day, a man walked in with good-looking motorcycle boots, looking for a pair of glasses.
“I told him ‘nice boots,'” Hansen said, with a smile. “We were married before I was out college.”
13 years and two sons later, Hansen is still in the optical business, and still married to the same man in boots.
“My husband and I always wanted to do our own thing,” she said, explaining that with her youngest entering kindergarten this year, the timing was perfect to chase that dream.
