Specsavers is an optical chain with over 2,000 locations in 11 countries, including the UK, Australia and Spain. If you live in one of those countries, you're already well aware of the tag line "Should've gone to Specsavers." It shows up regularly in a long-running series of popular (and funny!) commercials. Now the chain is coming to North America.    Phil Gray, Director of Business Development & Property for Specsavers, describes the $100 million investment plan to support the opening of 200 locations across Canada by 2024. 

James Cook is the director of retail research in the Americas for JLL. 

This episode was recorded live at the ICSC Canada conference in Toronto.
