Forest Lake optometrist Kevin Bahr’s plan still works
Dr. Kevin Bahr knows he may have dodged a bullet. As a business owner, he understands it can be unwise to change your business name.
Bahr has done it twice. Now 25 years later, he’s still standing and standing strong at North Woods Optics, 20 N. Lake St. in the Town Square Building.
On August 13, Bahr marked the silver anniversary of his optical business and eye clinic on the first floor of the downtown office building. His tenure dates to 1987, making him the third owner of the clinic which started in the late 1940s in the post World War II years when Oscar Van Wirt came to town to open what was then the Forest Lake Optometrical Center.
