Spectus Eyewear moves into former Paboom space


After more than 17 years, long standing Kitsilano business, Spectus Eyewear, has moved from their tiny digs tucked in behind the Capers building to prime West 4th real estate in the former Paboom location (W4th/Vine).

In a brief conversation with the owner and optician, Todd Crichton, he mentioned that they hope the move makes them more visible and connected to the community.

As I tear into a new box of low priced contact lenses that arrived this morning from online Vancouver company, Clearly Contacts, I certainly hope Spectus is able to stay competitive for another 17 years….or at least a while.

    i’ve bought frames from there and so have other people I know. I love their unique collection and helpful, but not pushy sales people.

    Can’t wait to check out their new location!
