The Brownhills Specsavers store held a spec-tacular party on Saturday (11 July) to celebrate their new look store, while supporting those affected by the Tunisian attack.

Black tie event

The team held their own black tie event, to help raise funds for the British Red Cross, who have set up a support line to help those that need emotional support following the terrorist attack.

Food and (non-alcoholic) drink

Staff offered chocolate coated strawberries and non-alcoholic bubbly, in return for donations.  Customers could also benefit from specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) in return for a small donation.

Desperate to help

Specsavers Brownhills store director, Monica Brocklebank, said: ‘We’re delighted with our new look store and so wanted to invite people in to see it for themselves and join in our party, while helping us to raise funds for charity.

The team were all desperate to help those affected by the attack in some way – the British Red Cross has not only helped on the ground during this time, but is also now supporting those left emotionally scarred through their support line. The number to call is 020 3417 0260, and the line manned daily from 8am until 8pm.’

Investing in the future 

A significant investment means that the Specsavers Brownhills store is now kitted out in the latest software in optical technology to link with the store’s tablets, making the process of dispensing specs smoother and quicker.

Customers can also benefit from Digital Precision Eyecare, which ensures individuals receive the very best professional care and advice in frame selection and dispensing for their prescription, vision and lifestyle needs. The technology allows the optical team to help customers select their glasses following an eye examination.  Imaging software on a tablet is used to take an image of them wearing the glasses, which in turn captures a range of essential dispensing measurements. These are unique to the customer and their chosen glasses.
