The GrandVision history spans back all the way to 1891. Since then it has been a successful and strong development which was always and always will be centered about providing customers with eye care. As a result GrandVision has grown to a global leader in optical retailing.
The roots of GrandVision lead back to 1891, when Christian Nissen opened his first optician's store in Helsinki, Finland. More than 120 years later, Nissen is still one of the GrandVision leading retail banners in Finland today.
