Optica Oduber & Kan
So Messrs Oduber and Kan opened the first Oduber & Kan store in Aruba in 1953. In November 1958, the two decided to continue growing and opened a branch in Curaçao. The branch was located in Punda, where almost all shops were located at the time.
In 1979, Optica Oduber & Kan was one of the first stores to move from Helfrichplein to Saliña. This saved customers from having to go all the way to the city, where parking was a pain. They could just park their car in front of the door when they visited the optician. Many other stores soon followed to the new and more accessible location.
In 1997, Pieter van Thiel took over the company. Optica Oduber & Kan is a household name on the island with over 60 years of experience. Craftsmanship, customer focus, fashion and the good atmosphere form the whole of our company.
