Specsavers Ashford is celebrating two decades of looking after the community’s eyecare by unveiling new cutting edge technology in store.

New technology

Specsavers, located at 36 County Square, have recently completed a renovation where traditional reception desks have been replaced by mobile, standing and seated service points, and customers are now greeted and registered on tablet devices, which are also used to measure and dispense their glasses.

The concept, which is being rolled out across all Specsavers stores, is the first of its kind in optics. As well as this, the store has decided to focus on a month-long fundraising push for Guide Dogs ahead of its official birthday in November, encouraging donations through minor glasses repairs and cleanings. Staff also took part as a team in The KM Big Quiz to raise further funds for the charity.

A huge leap forward for optics

Specsavers Ashford store director, Clive Perry says: ‘It’s fantastic to be celebrating 20 years of optical service in County Square.

‘We are delighted with the new look store. It has a real wow factor for customers and so far the feedback we have received has been very positive. Specsavers has really taken optics a huge leap forward with the creation of a very modern and efficient retail environment. We’d like to invite the community in store to come and give it a try, as well as make a donation to Guide Dogs who we are continuing to support.’
