Specsavers opticians in Nelson has been announced as the store to sign up the one millionth contact lens direct debit customer.

The store received a celebration hamper including champagne and chocolate for hitting the milestone.

Surprised and Excited

Contact lens portfolio manager Reah Hughes said: ‘It has taken over 20 years to achieve this phenomenal number.’ 

Nelson store director David Cleasby said: ‘It was a surprise to hear that we’d signed up the one millionth customer. When I told the team there were lots of smiles and excited jumping up and down.

‘There are over 700 stores and we’re a small store tucked away in East Lancashire. It’s perhaps a surprise that it wasn’t one of the bigger stores but, like the lottery, you’ve got to be in it to win it I suppose.’
