Long-serving optician Steven Mercer was clearly the focus of attention when Chorley Specsavers staff came together to celebrate his tenth anniversary at the store.

Steven, 29, who joined the store as an optical assistant in 2004 has risen to the post of merchandiser.

10 years and counting

He was presented with a 10 year service award from Rizwan Iqbal, director at the Chapel Street store.

Steven said: ‘It certainly doesn’t feel like I’ve been here for 10 years and I would like to say thank you to all my colleagues for making the past decade as enjoyable as it’s been.’

A great achievement

Store director Rizwan said: ‘A decade in store is a great achievement and Steven’s success testament to his determination to continually improve his own skills and his passion for excellent customer service.

‘We have a great staff culture here at Chorley Specsavers so it’s fantastic to see that people are drawn to that and stay with us for the long term. Congratulations Steven.’
