Does anyone know when Superstore Optical 50% off sale start for Fall 2018 ?

It should be 50% off frames and lenses. I have a pair of old frames that I'd like to upgrade.

The superstores beside me (north York region) are closing loblaw optical. They have been rebranded as another company.

As the new name is so far off from loblaw optical I would inquire whether the store you are planning on using still has a loblaw optical.

If anyone familiar with the changes can chime in and clear up any confusion about the new optical format at superstores?

According to the optician I spoke to at a RCSS in Winnipeg, the 50% off sale starts Sept 27.

Also 15% off contact lenses.

They are becoming Theodore and Pringle, which is the name of the founder of Loblaws. Not sure why they put "and" in there, maybe they think it sounds cooler. Sale started today, goes to Oct 6th

RCSS Winnipeg is offering 30,000 points/$300 spend this week. I bought 2 pairs of glasses yesterday and got 60,000 points on top of the 50% off sale (they put them through as 2 separate transactions).

I thought they had their half price on all frames, lenses and treatments, twice a year. Back to school time and again around March break.
So if anyone missed out.....there should be a sale coming up shortly.

I do get all our glasses at Loblaw Optical, now called Theodore & Pringle. I have had so many glasses repaired out of warranty. I once laid my glasses down on and they somehow flipped over into a burning candle. Burnt the plastic part over the ear. After a laugh, they happily put a pair of new ones on free. Had a few nose pieces replaced as well as arm screws, all free of charge. I am talking 4-6 year old eye glasses. Warranty is for 2 years.
I just had a pair fixed yesterday (lost screw in arm again) and while waiting, a woman came in with her husband’s glasses. He feel asleep reading and broke his 3 year old glasses into 3 pieces. They happily fixed us both up and we were on our way in 10 minutes. Mine feel like new, freshly tightened up the slack in both arms, cleaned and a new polishing cloth to boot!
They told me they may not be doing 50% off but the new 40% sale begins April 11

A friend told me it’s starting today. Not sure how long it’ll last though.
