An opticians and hearing centre in Plymouth has celebrated 30 years in the city with the unveiling of its new-look store.

Grand reopening

Specsavers staged a grand reopening at the end of June, in aid of Jeremiah’s Journey. Customers old and new were invited to join two days of celebrations.

New hearing service

The store will soon incorporate the hearcare centre which was previously located at Cornwall Street. The store has doubled in size and now has downstairs testing rooms for hearcare and optics.


Store director, Paul Denham, says: ‘Having doubled the size of the store in the last 10 weeks we want everyone to enjoy the new store. The re-fit has created more testing rooms meaning the store now has 16 in total and space to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our customers in and around Plymouth. The store also now boasts a choice of 2,000 frames.

Thank you

‘I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers for their continued support, as well as the staff for all their hard work and commitment.’

Plymouth Armada Way Specsavers is now one of the largest Specsavers stores in the UK offering customers the most up to date technology. The recent expansion includes a new lab with the ability to fabricate glasses on site, a new diabetic screening room, DVLA testing, two new ground floor hearing test rooms and a dedicated contact lens store.
