John Brian Coad

John Brian Coad (always known as Brian) founded JB Coad Opticians in July 1972. After working as a Dispensing Optician for various multiples he wanted to offer a more personal service. His ambition and ethos which still stands today is that excellent customer service, honesty and quality should be at the forefront of the business. We are proud to continue these principles in his name. 

Since 1972

Looking for a family opticians you can trust?
