Le Bonhomme à lunettes created a business model that has shaken up the Québec optical industry: the community eyewear store. Basically, the aim is to put accessibility at the heart of the optician's concerns. How does it work? And why have people from Sorel been coming to us since 2016? Let's see...
Collaborating with community organizations
Le Bonhomme à lunettes has been working with community organizations for over 15 years to ensure that its services are available to everyone, without exception. In Sorel, we are fortunate to be able to count on a first-rate partner: Centre d’action bénévole du Bas-Richelieu. For over 50 years, CABBR has been involved in promoting and developing volunteer action in the region. They offer a wide range of services, including food support and home care. They welcome us every Wednesday morning so we can offer our glasses at low prices. By saving on rent, we can pass the savings on to our customers. That's part of the reason why our glasses are affordable. What's more, we serve as a financing tool for CABBR, as well as dozens of other community organizations in Québec.
Reducing operating costs
In addition to our partnership with community organizations, people of Sorel can get glasses for less because of our minimalist business model: no big brands, no TV ads and, above all, no expensive operating costs. In short, we aim for simplicity so we can offer very reasonable prices, without sacrificing service or product quality. It's our extensive experience in the optical market that enables us to offer the best value for the money, and that's how we've managed to set ourselves apart in the eyewear business for over 15 years. Our model is so innovative that many opticians have been inspired by it over the years. But there's only one original that helped hundreds of thousands of people saving money while giving back more than a million dollar to community organizations, and it's Bonhomme à lunettes.
