Specsavers in Girlington has celebrated the store’s newly completed expansion.

The opticians invited the public into the store to enjoy activities such as face painting and prize giveaways. Stilt walkers added to the party atmosphere, as did the gigantic cake commissioned to mark the occasion.

Complete refit

The store, which is located at the Victoria Shopping Centre, has undergone a complete refit to further accommodate both customers’ needs and comfort.

Now double the size, the opticians boasts state-of-the-art optical and audiology services, with a mixture of standing, seated and mobile service points to enhance customer experience.

There is also a separate contact lens clinic, as well as a fully equipped audiology department with soundproof booth.

Customers can benefit from a dedicated seating area and collection desk, and an online booking system – using tablets to streamline the registration process.

A word from the store director

Pete Rooke, store director at the store, said: ‘We were extremely pleased with the launch of the expansion, and it was great to be able to show the public what we have to offer. The new store means that we can provide an even better service, improving customers’ overall experience.

'The state-of-the-art services will set us apart from the crowd, and we're looking forward to showing off our new facilities to all of those that visit the store.'
