Shoppers on Nottingham Road in Eastwood were surprised on Wednesday by a troupe of dancing grannies.

Courtesy of the new Specsavers store, the trio of older ladies kept passers-by entertained with a series of energetic routines to pop songs.

Despite already taking appointments, the new store is opening officially on Wednesday 22 March, with a celebration in store and ribbon-cutting by Specsavers founder, Dame Mary Perkins.

‘We’ve had a fun day dancing along with the grannies, and hopefully the customers loved it too!’ said store director, Krishna Parmar.

‘Our new store is looking brilliant and we can’t wait to officially cut the ribbon and welcome everyone inside to take a look in a few weeks’ time,’ added store director Amisha Parmar.

The brand-new store will have two test rooms where customers will benefit from a high-tech digital retinal camera that helps with the early detection of many conditions by taking a picture of the back of the eye. The new store will also offer Digital Precision Eyecare, a dedicated contact lens area and, alongside the sight testing capabilities, a hearing test room, as part of Specsavers Audiology service.
