Mike’s Bright Eyes sunglass and hat shops are a fixture on the centre’s ground floor near the travelator, Bright Eyes is a compact shop which packs a wallop in terms of the quantity and quality of sunglasses on offer along with an impressive range of shady and fashionable hats for young and old of both sexes.
Sun and eye protection is the name of the game, former long distance runner Mike has the outdoor miles on the clock to make a convincing argument for slipping on the sunnies and slapping on a hat before venturing outdoors.
Former accountant, lawyer, bookshop owner, real estate agent and business broker Mike and his wife Lettie moved to Coffs Harbour from Tamworth in 2008 and bought the Coffs Harbour Bright Eyes franchises in 2011.
He sees the stores as an ideal fit for sunny sub-tropical Coffs Harbour.
