Eyewear on Installment, Courts is Now Providing Optical Services

Courts (Belize) Limited is expanding its services offered to Belizeans and is now venturing outside household items and gadgets. The company, which concentrates mainly on providing customers with much needed items through a higher purchase facility, is now making optical services available to its clientele. Courts Optical is a new unit created within the main store on the Phillip Goldson Highway in Belize City, across from A and R. The new store offers eye exams, as well as brand name eyeglasses and sunglasses. The launch took place today and News Five spoke with Managing Director of Unicomer (Belize) Limited, Keith Slater about this new expansion of services.

“As you know with Courts, we never stay still very long. So this is just another brand that we are launching in Belize. Currently, optical is something that is quite familiar in the Caribbean. This is a roll-out through Central America; sister-companies in Central America are Traders Optica. This offers another facility for our customers where they can get good quality glasses and sunglasses and contacts at affordable prices. We offer credit plans as well to qualifying customers. So as you can see it is sort of first world facility; the investment is high. We got up to date equipment, fully trained staff and we should be able to give people full service.”

“So people can simply come here and get their eyes tested and all of that?”


Keith Slater

“Yes they get their eye tests free and they do the full service here.”

“Will this be offered at the other outlets?”


Keith Slater

“Well for now, this is the first one launching officially today; the next one will be in Belmopan which is pretty much finished and should probably be online next week. We’ll see how those perform and how things go and what the demand is. There could well be more at the other Courts stores.”



“So let’s just for clarity…the services aside, one of the biggest things is that you guys will offer these glasses on a payment plan? Like the I-Finance and the Ready Finance that Courts offers?”


Keith Slater

“Yes, that’s right. A lot of our existing customers have already taken up the offer because we gave them a little bit of a preview this week. But it is opened to anybody that comes in that qualifies for the Court’s credit.”
