On Saturday 17th June, Specsavers Antrim was invaded by a battalion of Stormtroopers equipped with menacing blaster rifles. Clad in their distinctive white armour, the galactic soldiers took the Castle Mall store by storm in their search for ‘Luke Skywalker’.

Star Wars excitement

Store director Davin Quinn said: ‘It was quite a shock to see the shiny white stormtroopers taking over the store. But optical assistant Joanna McDowell took it in her stride and even managed to get Darth Vader to undergo an eye test! Mid and East Antrim Council is to be congratulated for bringing some Star Wars excitement to the shopping centre as part of the Antrim Summer Festival.’
