Their parent company, Coastal.com was founded in Vancouver in the year 2000 and is one of North America's largest glasses and contact lens retailers, with over $180million in sales in 2011.
We stumbled across the store's future storefront while shopping on Vancouver's Robson Street this weekend. A post-stroll google search produced a link to the Vancouver Skyscraper Forum, where poster VanK posted a link to job postings for the retail shop.
The retail space at 1049-51 Robson Street was formerly occupied by a Little Burgundy shoe store.
We'll keep in touch with the company and monitor the success of their retail storefront (it will probably do well - we plan on buying glasses there). We'll let readers know if more Clearly Contacts stores will be opening in Canada.
