Progressive resumption of operations and in-store services

Select Optical Warehouse locations are now open with a limited schedule and are happy to serve you by appointment only.

We have put all the necessary safety measures in place to ensure a safe shopping environment for both our customers and our employees. These new procedures are following provincial guidelines and instructions from our professional order in order to limit the risk of spread of COVID-19.

In order to respect social distancing rules, the following changes have been made:

  • Reduced number of employees in store
  • Limited number of customers allowed to enter and be in the store at the same time
  • Specific time slots and durations for appointments to eliminate wait times between customers
  • Customers will be required to make an appointment
