The Story of G

Jessie and Bonni are cousins, and co-owners of G is for Glasses.

They opened G in 2014 with the intention of creating a welcoming, fun and inclusive environment in Winnipeg where people feel comfortable having their eyes examined and become genuinely excited about being bespectacled. 

At G is for Glasses you can expect distinctive eyewear, exceptional service, and outstanding, respectful patient care. We love playing glasses with humans in our fun-filled shop!
