TODAY’S SCAVENGER HUNT

Every day during Treefort 2022 we’re giving away prizes from local Boise businesses! Just keep your eyes on our Instagram feed for clues and be the first to the prize box to win!

TODAY’S PRIZES ARE FROM:
Lumos Optical

Armed with the desire to provide our community with affordable eyewear, we gave ourselves a challenge: find a way to offer quality frames and lenses, rivaling the world’s top brands, but for a fraction of the price. What developed out of this passion was Lumos Optical. At its core, Lumos aims to address a simple problem: Glasses are just too expensive! You shouldn’t have to compromise when quality, convenience, and affordability are concerned.
