The Erdington Specsavers team celebrated their 20th anniversary with a family fun day on Saturday 25 October.

Fun raising

Specsavers in Erdington celebrated 20 years in business by welcoming customers to a decorated store, complete with colourful posters and a balloon arch. Staff were decked out in their special 20th anniversary t-shirts and gave out goody bags to children, full to the brim of Specsavers treats and activity books. The team also handed out 20% off vouchers for eye examinations and collect donations for Breast Cancer Care. A stilt-walker entertained passers-by on the high street throughout the day.

Store director, Manjit Sidhu, said: ‘It’s great to celebrate 20 years with the people who know us best, our customers. The day was a huge success from start to finish with everyone in high spirits and customers walking away happy to celebrate with us.

‘We raised a great amount for charity and will continue to fundraise through events in store, watch this space.’ 

About the store

Specsavers in Erdington first opened its doors on 24 October 1994 with just an operational team of six carrying out some 100 eye examinations a week, today there’s a team of 22 managing nearly 240 sight tests per week.
