Here is another update on our new office space! While there naturally have been a few delays in construction due to the COVID-19 pandemic- we think it is coming along quite nicely! We truly feel that our comeback will be greater than the setback! We are proud to be a part of the community of Okotoks and seeing all the love that this town has for supporting its local businesses is heartwarming. We are now hoping for a tentative opening date sometime in August 2020.
Now that the steel stud framing is up in our new location, we are really starting to envision this space! The huge open front foyer of our office will be home to our welcome desk, our patient reception seating area with refreshment bar, our eyewear showcase and shopping area, our edging lab and our ‘pick up bar’ where we bring out your completed glasses when they are ready for you. There will even be a window into our edging lab so that you can peek in and see your glasses being hand-crafted! One of the features we are most excited about is our cozy fireplace and feature wall which will create an ambiance of peace and comfort. We hope you stay awhile! Behind our front foyer there are going to be multiple exam rooms, diagnostic testing rooms and a medical and ocular aesthetics spa! It feels almost surreal that this amazing new space will be ours in just a couple of short months. We cannot wait to share it with all of you and to continue to bring new exciting services and products to our community.
We are also excited to introduce our new colourway and branding for Okotoks Eyecare. We wanted the inspiration for our new office to be cohesively reflected in everything we do from a visual and digital perspective, so we really wanted to hone in on brand development and consistency, and how to portray Okotoks Eyecare to the community. Enter the talented Meaghan Johnson of Millson+Main, who worked with us every step of the way and designed our new branding and all the pretty details for us-making it even better then we initially imagined! She really took our vision and made it come to life. We hope you love this sneak peek of all the new things coming to Okotoks Eyecare!
