Who We Are

Bottomley Boutique Opticians is family owned and run by Jim Bottomley. The opticians first opened in 1948, when optometrist and original owner Randolph Bottomley set up his own independent optical practice. Since that time, we have remained a truly family-owned and run business.

Randolph’s son John joined him to work in the practice, eventually taking the business over upon his father’s retirement. John continued Bottomley Boutique Opticians’ success story, taking the practice from strength to strength and opening our second branch in Lindley, Huddersfield in 1990.

John’s son, current director Jim, took over the practice from his father when he chose to relocate to the island of Tiree on Scotland’s West Coast – where he has since set up another optician’s practice in the Bottomley group.

Having worked in the optics industry for various companies, Jim has been able to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to Bottomley’s. Alongside the cutting edge facilities we have, Jim’s ethos of giving you individualised, high quality eye care and the best experience possible ensures it really is better at Bottomleys.

Bottomley Boutique Opticians is proud to be the only third generation family practice offering clinical excellence including OCT in the town centre. We also take pleasure in being a valued part of the local community. That’s why, when we needed to move to bigger premises several years ago, it felt so fitting that we relocated to the building that once housed Halifax’s town hall.
Quality care and personal service

As managing director of the business, Jim is committed to continuing the dedication to high quality care and personal service his father and grandfather established. Jim and his team continue to not only meet, but to exceed the customer expectations laid out by those before them.
