COLLEGE STREET OPTICAL
340 COLLEGE STREET • 416 920 5566 www.collegestreetoptical.com
What’s going to be hot this spring? New lines/trends etc. Looking forward to spring with bright colours and more! Retro frames have come back in style along with large round frames. Also 3d printed frames like Austrian made Neubau is a great new trend. Woow from France has great patterns and colours. How long have you been in business? We have 3 locations in the GTA. The College Street Optical store opened in April 1990... 29 years!
What makes your business unique? We try to bring in unique styles and frames but I like to think we stand out with our customer service! We are client oriented and don’t want to treat clients like a big box store. We give personalized service depending on individuals needs.
What’s the best thing about being on this street? The best thing is the excitement and changes on College Street, the spring and summer are the best times because the whole street comes alive!
What has been your proudest moment in business? It has to be when a young child receives their first pair of eyeglasses. You see the child’s reaction when we put them on for the first time. Their face lights up! What’s your secret to success? Acclimatizing with the times but not changing our values and our appreciation for our clients.
