We have things that you cant get anywhere else in Memphis, says Dr. Michael Weinberg, who opened the first store in Midtown with his wife, Robbie, in 2002. From the Chrome Hearts line, a rock and roll designer line, to more conservative styles, Eclectic Eye is a fullservice eye care store with a bigcity vibe.

Eyewear doesnt have to be secondary to the eye exam, says Michael Weinberg. We want to make eyewear more fun and accessible.

Midtown, 242 S. Cooper, 276EYES 3937; Collierville, 3670 S. Houston Levee, 8533213. A rotary phone hangs on one wall and an oldfashioned cash register still rings up transactions. Ray Lancaster carefully wields a razor below the hairline on the back of Bailey Helms neck.

You have to have lots of confidence in your barber, laughs Helms. Helms has lived in the neighborhood for 48 years and visits Summer Center for a haircut every two weeks.

The shop, which has been at the same location for a halfcentury, is owned by Murrel Holder.

And the prices are oldschool too. The friendly atmosphere is complimentary; the haircut will set you back $12.

If your fashion sense tends toward the Pedro Garcia ballet slipper flat, a Zac Posen black sheath or a Norma Kamali belted trench, then Joseph in East Memphis is your onestop shop.

Alfred Wexner, the thirdgeneration owner, believes that the stores customers appreciate sophistication. The Memphis and MidSouth woman is welltraveled and wants the best.

Wexner notes that the store, which also carries cosmetics, has developed a following with females of all ages. We even get high schoolaged girls at our cosmetics counter.

Joseph also recently received accolades from the top fashion magazine Harpers Bazaar and was named one of the top 95 specialty stores in America. What we do, we think, is exciting, says Wexner.

Opened in 1859, the store is the local exclusive carrier of such highfashion labels as Ermengildo Zegna and Canali, as well as Gravati and Mark Nason shoes.

Bill Levy, a greatgreatgrandson of the founder Soloman Halle, attributes much of the longevity of Oak Hall to the values he learned from his grandfather Sol Halle. He taught us to run the business with integrity and to be fair and honest, says Levy, who coowns the business, which also sells womens clothes, with his brother Bob.

Our store has been known as a traditional to updated traditional store for years, says Levy. While that is still our core, we have always tried to add fashionable clothes for our customers as tastes evolve. We are excited that our efforts have been recognized.

We are probably one of the few family jewelry businesses left in Memphis, says Bob Mednikow, who is the thirdgeneration owner. To be voted the best is especially meaningful.

Mednikow carries wellknown brands such as Cartier, David Yurman and Marco Bicego, as well as lesserknown upandcoming jewelry and watch designers.

Mednikow is confident of the continuation of the family name well into future. My son Jay who is also a partner in the business and his wife, Elizabeth, have 15month old twin sons, so we are guaranteed that it will be around for a long time.
