Opticians celebrate upgraded store with fun day
Star of Specsavers’ comical fitness advert, Hayley-Jo Whitney, entertained shoppers in the town centre with a high-energy dance workout.
The fitness fun was part of a wider event to celebrate the store’s £500,000 revamp, including the refurbishment of two audiology rooms and the addition of three optical testing rooms.
There was also face painting and a cake sale, which raised more than £300 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
Store director, Steve Moore, said: ‘The event was a great success and everyone had good fun taking part in the Zumba. We’re pleased to have raised vital funds for Hearing Dogs and are grateful to all the generous customers that bought cakes and donated.’
The store is locally owned by Steve Moore, Rajesh Shah and Callum Biggs as part of a joint venture partnership with Specsavers. The new expansion comes 16 years after Specsavers first opened in the town centre and the store now has a team of 64 staff.
