Specsavers in Aldershot was thrilled to mark a colleague's 20th work anniversary this month and celebrated with a good old knees up at Pizza Express.

Well done Jo!

Jo Smurthwaite, Assistant Manager, is one of the store's longest standing employees, boasting 20 years service. During this time, she has seen lots of new exciting innovation launch in the optical industry and still marvels at the great fashionable brands that are available to Aldershot customers.

Jo says: 'Gone are the days of specs being a stigma.  Our affordable lines right up to designer brands make wearing frames fun and they can instantly transform your look.  We have many customers who treat their frames like a piece of jewellery, selecting multiple pairs for different occassions and outfits. 

'20 years on, I still love nothing more than seeing somebody branch out with a more daring look and telling me how much they love their new frames.'

A word from store director, Mark Dunn

'I am very proud of our team - we are close knit bunch and this is evident with customers who always say we are a friendly group of individuals.'  

Jo has been an invaluable member at Specsavers in Aldershot, always striving for excellence and the team take pride in following her lead.  Here's to another 20 years, Jo!
