WHO ARE WE?
One of our most commonly asked questions isn't about sunglasses - It's about our name. No, it's not East Coast Shades. It is our founders initials Edwin Curtis.
In 1988, Curt retired from his previous career. He thought it would be a fun adventure to open a sunglass shop next to his wife's store, Snyders Candy. For the first few years the store was only open during the summer season. If you've been to the shop since 1994 you have probably met Jeff. Since then, the store has remained open all year and is a staple of the many locals & regular beach goers.
In 1996 E.C Shades opened our second location on Main Street in Newark, DE.
Curt's philosophy was to provide the best customer service and 30 years later our customers are still our #1 priority.
