Specsavers in Banbury, which has suspended all routine testing, is still open to help those who need urgent or essential eye care, including key workers.
The team at Specsavers on Bridge Street are focusing their efforts on helping those who need vital eye care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Staff have already helped a local paramedic who had broken his specs and needed a new pair urgently so that he could continue to work. The team managed to get a new pair of specs to him the very next day.
A word from the store director
‘Getting through this pandemic is about us all working together to support one another and so where we can safely help those in need - we are here to help,’ says store director, Nimish Desai. ‘Alongside key workers we’ve also seen customers who need urgent eye care, as well as offering a home pickup and collect service both for specs and hearing aids, where customers need it.
‘Throughout this all the team have been amazing, despite the challenges, and I’m so very grateful and proud of them all.’
