Optical Chains

Blog  

In the UK we have three large optical chains which dominate - Specsavers, Vision Express & Boots. Specsavers is one of the most used opticians mainly due to its geographical coverage with over 900 UK outlets. Did you know that throughout the years they have placed themselves in positions where no tax or very little tax is paid to the UK Government- 20% of Specsavers turnover ends up in Guernsey.  Private equity firms are eyeing up Boots to make huge ROI’s without a thought for the clients who are the core of their business. Vision express is owned by Essilor Luxottica a European conglomerate which has a monopoly on premium designer branded frames.

Despite enjoying soaring profits these conglomerates throughout the pandemic have taken full advantage of government financial support such as grants, furlough scheme and bounce back loans. Some of them have reported highest profits ever during the pandemic.
