Specsavers Gorleston recently launched with a bang.

The new store, in Lowestoft Road, was officially opened by Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins and Mayor of Great Yarmouth Councillor Kerry Robinson-Payne, who even dressed in green for the occasion.

Cake and champagne

Staff and customers enjoyed cake, and even the odd glass of champagne to celebrate the new store.

Dame Mary, who had come from Guernsey for the occasion, took time out of her busy schedule to spend a couple of hours in the store talking to staff and customers.

Delighted store manager

Roxanne England, store manager in Gorleston, said: ‘The launch was amazing, and my team and I were on a real high.

‘Local customers have already taken us to their hearts, and on behalf of the team I would like to thank them for putting their faith in us.

We are delighted to be officially open and look forward to serving them in the future.’
