About Specsavers

 

Specsavers is the largest privately owned optical and audiology group in the world. With budgeted revenues in 2020/21 in the region of £3bn, the business trades from more than 2,000 locations across 10 countries (UK, Republic of Ireland, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Australia and New Zealand). The company has been through an impressive journey and having effectively managed through the first wave of Covid-19, has ambitious long-term plans in place to develop further

 

In March 2021, we were delighted to announce that Specsavers is now entering Canada, having acquired a regional, value for money chain of 18 stores operating in and around the Vancouver area of British Columbia; ‘Image Optometry’.
We believe that entering the Canadian market presents a fantastic opportunity for Specsavers to deliver its amazing customer care and value for money, as well as making a real difference to Canadian customers‘ lives.
