Wolf Eyewear has warned optometry practices to be vigilant of rogue re-sellers after a break-in at the independent eyewear brand’s warehouse.

The brand confirmed that, during the early hours of Monday 22 March, the warehouse in Leighton Buzzard was broken into and some stock stolen, including the latest range of Wolf sunglasses, a selection of Cubs models, and discontinued lines.

In a statement, Tom Wolfenden, director at Wolf Eyewear, said: “We are disappointed with the needless disruption and damage this incident has caused.”

Wolf Eyewear remains open for business and is contacting customers and suppliers.

Thanking the police and the Wolf Eyewear team for the handling of the situation, Wolfenden also extended his thanks to suppliers, customers and industry peers for their understanding and support.

Wolfenden continued: “We want to take this opportunity to warn independent opticians or those buying online to be wary of unexpected approaches by individuals offering to sell Wolf Eyewear at a reduced price.”

The business remains open, Wolfenden confirmed, though “there may be a minor interruption to our service, particularly in relation to sunglasses. However, we are working hard towards returning to business as usual.”

Wolf Eyewear has asked that anyone with information that may help the police in the investigation to get in contact.
