Is there a business you’ve been visiting for many years? A place where the staff is familiar to you, where you feel a little bit like home when you pass through the door? For a number of patients at the IRIS Sorel-Tracy store, that’s the case!

That’s exactly the case for Marie-Michelle Rivard, co-owner optometrist, whose parents were already patients of the store during her childhood. Only two years after throwing her cap as high as possible at her graduation from Université de Montréal, she decided to embark on the great project of becoming an owner optometrist in 2015.

The store having opened its doors over 30 years ago, Marie-Michelle was fortunate to join an experienced team of the twelve employees of the clinic, four have been working there for now over 20 years! Johanne Paul-Hus (39 years), Sylvie Gauthier (41 years), Michel Falardeau (25 years) and Nicole Vachon (20 years). The team is a real family. They gather together each year for various activities, like a visit of the Bouch-Art winery in 2018 and a corn roast last summer.
