Specsavers in Frome has undergone a store refit and is set to celebrate the relaunch with a fundraising day at the beginning of National Eye Health Week.

The team is raising funds for Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) with a bake sale in store on 18 September. While marking the first day of National Eye Health Week, it is also a great opportunity for the local community to see the recent renovations in store.

The stores new look

The work began on 21 August and the store remained open throughout. The new refit aims to make the store a more customer friendly environment and allows Specsavers to continue delivering excellent customer service and maintain a fast-growing team.

An extra testing room has also been added to help deal with the increase in customer demand. This brings the number of testing rooms to five including a ground-floor room.

A word from the director

Store director, Martyn Thomas, says: ‘With the refit completion and National Eye Health Week both falling at the same time it is the perfect opportunity to hold a fundraising event.

‘We’re hoping the local community will get behind us on this and help us raise money for such a good cause. It is the RNIB’s mission to help and support those suffering from sight loss and therefore, as a charity they are very close to our hearts.

‘We encourage people to come along to see the new refit and enjoy a tasty treat at the same time. The store looks really great and I have every belief that the cakes on offer will look just as good.’
