The retail members of Club Optic Leader and OpticLibre, two French buying groups recently affiliated with GrandVision, have reportedly decided to regain their independence, although they will continue to benefit from GrandVision's purchasing platform for three more years. Run by two industry veterans, Jean-Luc Sélignan and Pascal Chateau, they have more members than before. Club Optic Leader groups 39 opticians with 74 stores. OpticLibre has some 200 members with 220 stores.
