While Specsavers Stowmarket in Ipswich Street is closed for all routine eye and hearing tests at the moment, they are still open to provide essential care and support local keyworkers.
Helping workers from the community
Last week, the team helped a local support worker for children with autism after her glasses were broken at work.
The arm had fallen off, so the manager fixed them for free, but unfortunately, the frame snapped completely later in the week. She went back into the store expecting to have to buy new glasses, but the team swapped her lenses into a new set of frames – also at no charge. She was delighted at the efficient service too as it meant she could get straight back to work.
Store director happy to offer the community support
Simon Hill, store director in Stowmarket, said: ‘We are really pleased to be open for care and to be able to support so many local people with their essential eye and hearing needs at this time.
‘We want the local community to know that, while we are closed for routine appointments at the present time, we are still very much here to support people with their essential eye and hearing care needs – so please give us a call if you need us.’
