History of Hakim Optical in Toronto
Sir Hakimi moved to Canada in 1967 and opened his own business in a dance hall of the former Elmwood Hotel. He bought optical equipment from a closed-down lab in Chicago and rebuilt it to produce his own lenses. He began to knock on doors to sell his lenses in Toronto and slowly built up his business.
Today, there are over 160 optical locations throughout Canada, from British Columbia to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
