Residents of Dunstable welcomed their second local Specsavers store recently, with the opening of Specsavers Dunstable Sainsbury’s, offering both optical and hearing services.

VIP guests

Mayor Dunstable, Councillor Gloria Martin, was the guest of honour on the day, along with two cheeky minions. Councillor Gloria was all smiles meeting the team, posing for photos between the Disney stars, and cutting the cake and ribbon on the store to officially open the new premises.

The minions helped out on the day by handing out goodie bags filled with chocolates, ponchos and keyrings and a face-painter added to the excitement, visiting the store between 12-2 to paint. The Specsavers ‘Big Ear’ was also a special guest, helping to promote the audiology service, which will be operating out of the store once a week.

A word from the director

Store director Alpesh Mistry only had good things to say about the opening.

‘It was a fantastic day for a launch, with great weather and a great atmosphere in-store. We look forward to meeting all of our news customers over the coming months. Do drop by and say hi!’
