Croydon optical and audiology experts have welcomed more than 10,000 customers to their new cutting edge community facility – only six months since its unveiling.

Specsavers in Croydon North End recently underwent a £300,000 renovation, resulting in the creation of eight new jobs, two new test rooms and the capacity for 200 new eye and hearing tests per week.

The store was officially reopened in January by Specsavers’ founder, Dame Mary Perkins, and Croydon Mayor, Councillor Patricia Hay-Justice.

A word from the store director

Bill Pennell, store director at Specsavers in Croydon North end and Church Street, is delighted to have got to this benchmark: ‘Reaching our 10,000th customer in six months was a big goal for us. That we’ve achieved this is a testament to a hard-working team and our new facilities.

‘From our pioneering new way of selecting and fitting customers’ glasses to the introduction of our audiology clinic in store, customers are receiving a better service than ever before.

‘We can’t wait to see what the next six months have in store!’

More about the store

The store now offers Digital Precision Eyecare, which ensures everyone receives the very best professional care and advice in frame selection and dispensing for their prescription, vision and lifestyle needs. Following an eye examination, the optical team assists customers in selecting their preferred glasses. Imaging software on a tablet is then used to take an image of them wearing the glasses, which, in turn, captures a range of essential dispensing measurements. These are unique to the customer and their chosen spectacles.
