    Looking for partner (optical shop owner) in UK

    As requested by our business needs, we are currently looking for a partner in UK, with the partner being optical shop owner of single store or 2-3 stores, preferably in London area, but other cities are also ok for us.

    We are an eyewear company with most of the business from North America at present, we are trying to explore the EU market, and we will start from UK.

    2020 was the slow and tough year for any retail shops, including the eyewear retail business. Let us work together to go through the tough time, and look forward to a better future. Our partnership will start with a fixed payment no matter what the workload is in the beginning. For details of our partnership, please send me private message or email me at 417603849@QQ.com. Thanks

    hi, juno,
    Actually what I am thinking of is NOT to explore EU VIA UK, we will just explore UK as the first country in EU. We will do other countries by working closely with optical store owner (eyewear professional) to better serve patients and customers.

    Hi, Mauro,
    We will explore the EU nations one by one, we do not consider UK as the nation for entering EU, we just explore the single country's market, one after another.
