Brunson opened our location here in Utica Square along with the original construction of the shopping center. Our optical boutique, originally called Hicks Brunson Opticians, was one of the first stores in Utica Square.  We are proud of our long history in Utica Square and take pride in continuing our tradition of providing Tulsa natives and travelers from all parts of the world with fashionable and quality eyewear. Please enjoy these pictures taken from a rare color video of the construction of Utica Square recorded in late 1951.
