The team at Specsavers Eastbourne had a really special visitor recently – Santa Claus.

Santa had suffered a bit of a mishap when one of his reindeer sat on his glasses.

He needed them back urgently to make sure he could check his list twice to work out which local children had been naughty and nice this year.

Specsavers to the rescue

Fortunately the store, at 8B Arndale Centre, Terminus Road, were able to help him out.

They gave him an extensive eye test, and had a new pair of glasses ready for him to collect within an hour.

He was really pleased, and put the whole team on the nice list.

Efficient and professional service

Martin East, store director in Eastbourne, said: ‘The whole team really enjoyed meeting Santa Claus. We were glad to be able to help him out so quickly, so he could get back to getting ready for his busiest night of the year.

‘You don't have to be Santa Claus to get a fast, efficient and professional service at Specsavers Eastbourne, so whether you have broken your glasses or just want to update your look for the party season, why not come and see us.’
