Specsavers Coleraine are moving to much bigger premises in the town centre in response to growing customer demand for its optical and hearing services. Store directors Judith Ball and Lynn Mackey are investing £350,000 into the new store at 8 The Diamond which will also result in the creation of five new jobs.

May Bank Holiday opening

From Monday 4 May 2015 customers will have access to Specsavers full portfolio of 1500 frames in what will be the largest Specsavers in Northern Ireland. The new store will also have six optical test rooms and a dedicated hearing centre with two soundproof rooms for hearing testing. The hearing hub will be managed by qualified audiologist and store director Joanne Torrens.

New technology

The Coleraine store is also one of the first Specsavers in Northern Ireland to introduce the latest software in optical technology to link with the store’s iPads making the process of dispensing glasses smoother and quicker.

Cutting edge facilities

Judith Ball, store director, Coleraine said: ‘After 15 successful years at Kingsgate Street we have decided to move nearer the town centre to a much larger location in order to cater for increasing demand for our services. Hearing services in particular are experiencing growth and we have put a significant share of our investment in creating a dedicated hearing hub within the store managed by specially trained staff.’

Thanks to local community support

We are delighted to be able to offer the most up to date facilities to our customers in our new premises as well as creating another five jobs. We would like to thank the local community for its continued loyalty and support.
