How can he unlock the store everyday and not notice that? Or it's a bit of tongue in cheek going on.

Perhaps, more than an "Optometrist", he is an "OPTIMIST" ?

Looks like a good way to deal with Pesky relatives. Keep them in the bank locker.

This is not a room or apartment "TO LET"
To solve the puzzle, just add alphabet "I" between words TO and LET

I think the message it wanted to convey was:

1. Don't leave valuables at home when nobody is at home, use bank lockers for this purpose.

2. If point #1 above is too hard to follow, then leave someone at home to look after the valuables.

But yes, they could have framed it better.
