There's nothing like the special bond of shopping at a family-owned, local business.
Scope Department was inspired from the friendly-neighborhood, lens and optics store.
However, as an online retailer serving the entire USA, everyone is our neighbor!
While many big box hardware stores are great on price and convenience, they lack personal customer service and quality, expert assistance.
At Scope Department, we combine convenient free shipping, easy returns, and rock bottom pricing with the absolute best customer service in the industry.
Every day, we strive to give each customer the experience they deserve, just like a local mom & pop shop.
Scope Department was created in 2014 by Two brothers who felt it was necessary to fill the gaps other retailers in the industry were leaving wide open. Co-owner Peter grew up with a father who was an Astronomer, and at a young age was always looking up at the stars with his fathers unique collections of telescopes.
After over 20 years of working with his father, it became clear that he wanted to get into the field of optics. With an expertise and passion that is unteachable, he knew he could provide the highest quality product, and best customer service on the market.
While a high quality telescope is important to see the most magnificent things in our galaxy, unfortunately sometimes telescopes and microscopes can be very expensive.
It is our mission to provide the highest quality products online for the lowest prices on the market. We want to ensure everyone has their dream scope, regardless of their budget.
We will also be striving to provide top quality advice on all optics so every customer knows how to stretch their dollar as far as possible.
Satisfaction and Support Are Always Our Top Priority
If you ever have a question, don't hesitate to call, send an email, or even contact our live support.
We have dedicated, U.S. based scope, and optics experts available around the clock to provide you assistance, just like any friendly neighbor would. Owners, Peter, and Jared spend a lot of time in the office making sure each customer is satisfied.
Thank you for stopping by, and we invite you to make yourself at home!
