Ep. 69 Lisa McIntyre of The Optical Shoppe

Today's guest has a very "clear" view of our community and her future as an entrepreneur!   

Growing up, Lisa was part of a family-owned business. Sunday dinners, holidays and after school were spent talking about business.  Her family volunteered often; visiting virtually any venue that was hosting an event or fundraiser. This gave her a sense of what it means to give back and be part of something bigger.  

Today, Lisa McIntyre is the owner/operator of The Optical Shoppe. A 37-year business she purchased in 2019 from the original family. A businesswoman by trade, she saw the opportunity to purchase the local business as both a means to support the community and a path to success for herself and the business.   

Being a business owner in her hometown of Regina means everything to her.   So, when the opportunity came to own The Optical Shoppe she jumped in with both feet! It is the perfect marriage of her love for fashion, business, and professional expertise. 

At The Optical Shoppe, it's their mission to cultivate personal confidence by ensuring you are looking and seeing your best. Lisa and her team of specialists are always ready to help you find the best frame & lens combo to fit your lifestyle.  Tune in as she talks about business ownership, leaving the family business and building her legacy.
