FANWOOD, NJ -- Mayor Colleen Mahr helped cut the ribbon his morning to officially welcome Fanwood Eye Care to the downtown business district on Saturday afternoon. The ribbon cutting, organized by the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, marks the first eye care business in Fanwood and a recent addition to the Fanwood Crossing II complex.

Fanwood Eye Care (246 South Ave., across from the train station) is owned by Dr. Kathy Shin and offers eye exams, glasses and contacts all in one shop.

“We are very excited to welcome you and your business to Fanwood,” said Mayor Mahr.
