Victoria Square store director has marked 25 years with Specsavers in Northern Ireland.

Bangor and Belfast

David, who has 43 years’ experience in the optical industry, spent 8 years with Specsavers in London before coming over to Northern Ireland in 1995 to set up Specsavers in Bangor along with Stuart Douglas.

David then moved to Specsavers in central Belfast during 2004 when it was located in Ann Street. The Belfast store moved to larger two-storey premises at Victoria Square in June 2016 when it was officially opened by star boxer Carl Frampton.


Whilst operating the Bangor store, David won a prestigious UK wide National Training Award in 1996 receiving the accolade at London’s Downing Street. The Bangor store also went on to win an Optician’s Eye Care Award in 1997 and was the first multiple to win that trophy.
