Oscar Wylee To Enter Canadian Market

Oscar Wylee CanadaAustralian eyewear retailer, Oscar Wylee announces their expansion into Canada, with their first store set to open in West Edmonton Mall, Alberta at the end of August 2021. This comes on the back of the eyewear retailer opening 27 new stores across Australia and New Zealand since January.

We are always looking for new location opportunities to expand access to quality eye care.” said Kane Ford, the Director of Retail Operations at Oscar Wylee.

The company has also announced 4 more confirmed locations in Halifax, Calgary and Toronto.

Oscar Wylee has grown rapidly since brothers Jack Teoh and Bob Teoh purchased the company with their investment firm and began to expand its operations. At the time, it was a small ecommerce operation delivering glasses over the internet with no physical store footprint. Since then, Oscar Wylee has grown into an international organisation with 100 stores and over 800 team members across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

With a focus on employee benefits, Oscar Wylee will provide its Canadian optometrists with generous daily minimums, uncapped earning potential and qualified support staff. Additionally, each new store will be fitted with top-quality DRS and Visual Field equipment to provide staff and customers with a quality optical testing experience.

Oscar Wylee’s modern optometry equipment and plans to expand their store network will assist with providing comprehensive eye tests, best in class service and unique products to the Canadian market. The eyewear retailer has no plans of slowing down, with preparations for new store locations constantly underway. Be sure to keep an eye out for an Oscar Wylee arriving near you.
