Specsavers at Unit 9, Baddeley Court, Newport will be opening its doors to customers next month, helping to provide the very best eye care and audiology service to the community.
The business will be run by two store directors: Rizwaan Makda and Vinay Najran, who are both familiar faces to Specsavers as they head up the store in Telford together. Between them, they have 28 years’ optical experience.
A word from the store director
‘We will bring the same customer-focussed service that we pride ourselves on in Telford and hope to build similarly strong relationships with members of the local community in Newport,’ said Rizwaan. ‘The opening will also bring job opportunities to the town so watch this space if you are interested in a career in optometry or audiology.’
The new store will benefit from three optical consulting rooms, a contact lens area and a dedicated sound-proof audiology room as well as offering a 24-hour turnaround for single vision specs. The latest high-tech optical equipment will also be installed throughout, including an OCT (optical coherence tomography) scan which can help detect treatable eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, sooner.
‘The local community is also very important to us,’ said Vinay. ‘We’re already sponsoring Newport Rugby Club and Newport Bowling Team and are looking forward to getting involved with more local causes and events once we’re open.’
The Newport store will be open seven days a week and free parking is available on site. To make an appointment, pop into the Telford store at 46 Southwater, Telford Shopping Centre, Telford, Shropshire, TF3 4BX or call 01952 200 100.
