The official opening of Grandoptical is scheduled for this Wednesday, May 10 on the site of the Pôle de santé foulayronnais.

For Amandine Meyre and Christophe Cocuron it will once again be the big day on Wednesday. Independent franchisees of the Grandoptical brand, after opening their first store on May 9, 2008 in Boé, fifteen years later, they are doing it again. This Wednesday, May 10, from 9:30 am, it will be the official opening on the site of the health center in Foulayronnes.

Both have solid professional experience. They cut their teeth at Kriss in the Géant Casino shopping mall for Amandine Meyre and at Opticians mutualists boulevard de la République in Agen for Christophe Cocuron. The latter even managed this last sign in Fumel where he had again increased the turnover.

Opening and meeting with Zizou

In 2008, they both decided to launch themselves: “We had this desire, like that of becoming our own bosses. We researched several franchises and chose Grandoptical. The sign is thirty years old, but was beginning to open franchises. On May 9, 2008 we open avenue d’Aquitaine in Boé. We were the fourth,” they explain.
A choice that will leave them with only good memories: “We were elected for the best opening of the sign. The trophy was given to us by Zinedine Zidane with whom we also shared a meal, also took the photo and the signed 98 world champion jersey. »

Both are born from Agenais. For the manager his maternal grandparents are in Artigues and paternal in Brax. He played youth rugby at SUA and then Passage. Passionate about horse riding, the manager recalls that her grandfather Marcel Meyre was president of SUA rugby, the three times the SUA was crowned French champion in the time of Lacroix, Sitjar, etc.
Why this Foulayronnais choice? ” It’s an opportunity. We received a call for tenders and liked the project. In addition there is no competition, there is enough to develop us”, continues Christophe Cocuron. For Mayor Bruno Dubos: “This is the realization of the first public-private partnership project. The health center is a place for the well-being of the person. They were the first to join our project. A beautiful store emerges. The commercial offer is expanding because this product did not exist. They are the first to settle, I congratulate them. »

Medium and high end

“We love our job with the desire to welcome our customers as best as possible. We work on the glasses, they don’t arrive ready-made. We also share people’s worries and joys”, specify the managers demonstrating that they are a local store.
As for the concept, the brand places itself on “medium and high-end glasses with 95% of claws (Rayban, Vogue, Ralph, etc.). There is a special luxury corner but also products for 100% health as well as brand packages. “To discover from Wednesday.
