about lisa


I grew up in a family owned business. Sunday dinners, holidays and after school we were talking about business. I grew to love that! So, when the opportunity came to own The Optical Shoppe I jumped in with both feet! It is the perfect marriage of my love for fashion, business and professional expertise.

I also grew up in many curling rinks, sports arenas and virtually at any venue that was hosting an event or fundraiser. Our family seemed to volunteer for everything! That taught me what it means to give back and be part of something bigger than myself. Being a business owner in Regina, the community I have always called home, means everything to me. The Optical Shoppe was founded by Thel Bannatyne 35 years ago. Thel was a step ahead of her time stating that “glasses are the most important item you wear”. We could not agree with her more.

Our mission is to cultivate personal confidence by ensuring you are looking and seeing your best. Helping you find the best frame and lens combination to keep up with your busy lifestyle is our number one priority.

I might never admit to the total number of cocktail dresses I have but I do commit to provide you with exceptional customer service, quality lens selection and an eyewear selection that is always fresh, fashionable and forward thinking – and, in business I just can’t think of anything better than that.
