The Gray Group Celebrates 40 Years of Excellence

The Gray Group, as it’s known today, began in 1979 as Gray’s Optical. Gray’s Optical was opened by Wayne and Doreen Gray. With hard work, this entrepreneurial couple experienced success in business which in the coming years, led to expansion into other parts of their business and various industries, allowing the Gray Group to become what it is today. The husband and wife team grew the business with a strong emphasis on community, team members, family values and a commitment to quality and service above all else. These same values remain a focus of The Gray Group and are the cornerstone of how we continue to conduct our business today, and for the future.


As Gray’s Optical grew, more locations were opened, the staff team continued to grow, and the company evolved into Vogue Optical. With the success of the optical business came real estate opportunities by purchasing buildings and strip malls to house the various locations. The Gray Group today is a result of the success of its parent company, Vogue Optical, who is still a major anchor tenant.

The Gray Group continued its growth with the purchase of commercial office buildings throughout Atlantic Canada. In addition to the commercial real estate, The Gray Group is the parent company to the following companies: Island Drafting, H-Line Enterprises, Cornwall/Charlottetown KOA, Vision Automotive and Fox Meadow Golf Course.

The Gray Group prides itself on its corporate responsibility to numerous community organizations through donations, sponsorships and employee volunteerism. Some organizations that we are proud to have supported throughout the years include: The Children’s Wish Foundation, QEH Foundation, IWK, Special Olympics and Pat and the Elephant.

We strive to exceed client and customer expectations on an ongoing basis, to encourage and celebrate our hard-working staff, and, as Doreen Gray would say, “to care for all of our people and treat them right.”

We are fortunate to celebrate our 40-year milestone with our employees, clients and partners – and look forward for what is to come!
