    Question Killer Loops

    OK. Has anyone else heard that Luxottica is about to dump Killer Loops?

    Haven't heard anything about it but I think it's a grand idea. The line is "lame".
    Styles that were discontinued 3 or 4 years ago came back again after Lux took over with no new innovation. They're dated and look like they're cut from the same cookie cutter mold as Arnette. I hope it's true. Time to get movin'

    I asked my rep today about this. He said Lux IS NOT dumping Killer Loop, in fact it has expanded the line. So there you have it, straight from the horse's mouth.

    Veeeeery Interesting!

    Because you see, the information I got about Killer Loops being dumped was from a Luxottica rep!.

    And it's from a rep that I trust!

    Very often, or better most of the times the horse is NOT being told where the wagon driver is going.

    Unaware opticians sell rx that should not be put in wrappers. The lab calls and says "this will never stay in this frame". The optician says "you did one last year". Thinking about the refund. I've already sold this. Then when the problems start he expects the lab to bear the cost of making another one that will not stay in and at last give credit for the lenses. on and on.
