Courts Dominica’s Roseau branch is now the latest Courts store in the region to offer optical services
Courts Dominica’s Roseau branch is now the latest Courts store in the region to offer optical services. That Store was officially opened on Wednesday July 6, 2016, and is the 9th in the region. Regional Optical Chain Manager Matthew Render said, “On behalf of the regional team I am proud to add Dominica to our portfolio, and we look forward to bringing our customers new and existing value you can see.” He said many people may be wondering how a furniture store ended up selling glasses.
He explained that “Although Optical is relatively new to the Courts business in the Caribbean, it has formed part of the wider interest of the Unicomer Group for the last fifteen years.” Starting as a single store in El Salvador, Courts Optical has grown exponentially, to the pointed where the group now operated over one hundred (100) optical stores.
The newly opened Optical Store here has a fully qualified in-house optometrist, Dr. Rawlings Chidi, who is supported by a dispenser and sales team. Mr. Render said the complementary eye exams are done using state-of-the-art digital equipment, which are not available anywhere else on Dominica. “We upgrade our equipment constantly, to stay on the cutting edge of technology, and at the same time, we pay the same level of attention to fashion, ensuring that we offer only the latest designs.”
Brands such as Ray Ban, Polo, Converse, Dolce and Gabana and Reebok are available for purchase or via “easy, flexible and affordable payment terms with up to twenty-four months” for payment of the prescription.
Lenses available are single vision, bifocal and progressive.
Meanwhile, Courts Country Manager Connie Matthew said, “Today marks the culmination of an idea that began about two years ago; an idea about a new and exciting business venture for Courts in Dominica; the creation of an optical brand.” She said so far the optical stores and highly trained professional teams of the other Optical stores have been “well received in their respective markets” and as such, expect nothing less in Dominica.
