Specsavers in Blackwood has marked its 25th anniversary by hosting an event in store.
Staff celebrated the quarter century milestone by decorating the store and offering food, homemade cakes and a selection of drinks, and held a raffle giving customers the chance to win one of 10 pairs of designer glasses.
‘Grown from strength-to-strength’
‘Our event to celebrate 25 years at Blackwood was a huge success enjoyed by customers, staff and friends,’ says store director, Jonathan Evans.
‘When we first opened the store on Blackwood High Street in 1991, there was just one test room and only a handful of staff; since then we’ve just grown from strength-to-strength increasing the number of test rooms to five, expanding our services to offer audiology and upping staff numbers to 25.
‘In fact, the event was a double celebration, recognising that our very first member of staff, Mackenzie Williams, who is now a dispensing optician, has been with us since day one!
‘Without the continued support of the Blackwood community we wouldn’t have had such a successful 25 years of trading. Through our gradual expansion and investment into the store, we hope to offer customers, both old and new, the highest standards of optical and audiology services.’
