Do you want to listen to the music of the traffic in the city? Or maybe you’re someone who would rather linger on the sidewalk where the neon lights are pretty? Either way, you can go downtown – and you should because we love it here! Situated at the heart of our city, you can find anything in Regina’s downtown. And if you’re trying to find a new outfit, have a lunch meeting and pass by some of Regina’s most eccentric personalities along the way, downtown is the perfect place.
In addition to the hustle and bustle of everyday operation, downtown Regina also hosts a wide variety of events and performances on a regular basis throughout the year. You can check out the biweekly farmer’s market in the summer or the Frost Festival in the winter, and you can’t miss the annual Folk Festival, which takes place right in Victoria Park each year. And when you realize that the singers are starting to look a little blurry, it’s no sweat because The Optical Shoppe is just a few feet away and we’re always ready to improve your vision experience…especially in the name of concerts. That being said, if concerts aren’t your thing, Cinema Under the Stars is back in 2023 for anyone who was missing their outdoor movies during the pandemic!
We have been downtown for the past 40 years and we couldn’t think of a better spot for our optical boutique. It seems that no matter what time of year it is, there’s always something happening in Victoria Park, down Scarth St or even right across the hall from us in the Cornwall Centre. Whether it’s a craft show, a multicultural dance celebration or a pop-up vaccination station, every day brings something new to our workday and to the glasses-buying experience we are able to provide.
