America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses, a Lawrenceville, Georgia-based optical retailer, announced on Thursday it has opened at the Somerville Circle Shopping Center in Raritan.

The 3,000-square-foot store at 300 Route 202 will bring the 150,000-square-foot center to 100% occupancy, according to Levin Management Corp., the leasing and managing agent for the property.

LMC’s Vanessa Fernandez-Kelty, senior leasing representative, arranged the America’s Best deal. Cushman & Wakefield and David Dunkelman of Soloff Realty & Development represented the tenant.

“We are thrilled to introduce America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses to the mix at this high-demand property,” Fernandez-Kelty said. “America’s Best marks a new retail category for Somerville Circle, and this brand represents a quality addition. This property has become a magnet for national brands that secure its position as a ‘one-stop shopping’ destination.”

The center is anchored by a P.C. Richard & Son and is home to a variety of tenants including Staples, Petco, Carter’s, Jersey Mike’s, Panera Bread, Burger King, Five Below and Harmon Discount. It is located within close access to routes 202, 206 and 28.
