I am a local Laguna Beach resident. I always dealt with Harry, the owner of the store. He really cares about his customers and is driven not by trying the sell you the most expensive glasses but the ones that fit you the best!
By the way he finally got rid of those two guys who were working there. They were real gems! When I went into the store they were always talking with their friends or on the phone on personal business. I heard them talking to customers about their side businesses. I got the impression one the guys had a computer business on the side and the other fellow had some kind of hauling business on the side.
They would work on these businesses while they were suppose to working for Harry. What a bunch of rip off artists. I guess Harry finally found out what they were doing! They deserved to be put on the George Washington Program and made part of history!
It is a real shame when employees hurt an owner and business like this.
Anyways, that is why I only dealt with Harry. He also hired two new women who are really experienced and treat you the way the Harry treats you.

I went into the Sunglass Gallery to peruse the sunglasses. I was looking for some Maui Jim's. The owner was wonderful and he pulled several styles for me of that brand and fit me according to size and shape. He told me that he wouldn't just sell me a pair of glasses just because they were the most expensive and that the least expensive glasses could be what I need. As he said, the least expensive fit the best and that is what I purchased. Nice Guy! I can't imagine what these other reviewers are stating because he was a real gentleman. I will continue to go there for future purchases.

I am a photographer and was across the street shooting iin the same direction as this business. When an employee noticed me across the street he ran across the street towards me and demanded to know what I was taking pictures of... I told him I did not have too tell him and that I knew my rights.. He started to try and tell me that the sidewalk I was on was own by a business owner he knew and that I could stand there.. When I told him it was public property and I knew my rights he said "whatever you chink!"

The store manager is aware of this situation but refuses to fire the employee.. He stated that the employee wasn't feeling well and that was his excuse..

Please dont shop here..

I have to say I found the service here above average. I really appreciated that even though the shop sold pricey designer shades, they didn?t look down on me or anything when I asked if they had anything under $100. They were very helpful in bringing me different styles until I found one that fit my face perfectly in the price range I was looking for. This was definitely the most pleasant sunglasses-buying experience I?ve ever had.

I am a local of Laguna Beach. The Sunglass gallery is a great company! The service is great, and they offer a variety of glasses from top brands across the world. I only buy from them!

When I walked in, the clerk was telling a woman about polarized lenses. She left without buying anything. Then he took a personal call ("I need the money! You can transfer it to my account!"). After he hung up, I said, "You're lucky, I already know I want polarized lenses." He said, "Do you know what polarized means?" "Yes. My last pair was polarized. I like them." "Most people don't know what polarized means. It means..." Blah blah blah. My meter was running out, so I said, "Save the spiel. I heard it already and I know I want polarized lenses." He went silent and glared at me, which I pretended to ignore. Then he asked me what sort of glasses I wanted. I said I wasn't sure, but that I had a small face, so something small. I walked along the cases, asking if this or that pair was polarized and if so, could I try them on. He said, "Do you want wire frames or plastic?" "I'm not sure."
He started making me very nervous, the way he was staring at me, so I finally said, "I don't think I'll buy a pair today." He shouted, "You know what? F--k you! You don't f'in know whether you want wire frames or plastic! You rudely interrupt what you call my 'spiel'. Well, F you, bit-h! Get out of my store!" He went on and on, like he was insane. When he paused for breath, I asked, "Are you on drugs?" He started yelling again and ran into the backroom...I thought maybe for a gun. Some other customers looked in at this point, but quickly changed their minds.

PROS: Lots of sunglasses
CONS: The clerk who worked on Sunday, 10-23-06, is insane
