Two experienced store directors have taken the helm at Specsavers in Greenock following the retirement of its previous directors, who ran the store for 23 years.

New store directors
Greenock-born optometrist Jonathan Dry and dispensing optician Lesley Brown join an experienced team including several long-serving members of staff.

Jonathan has over 15 years’ experience as a fully qualified optometrist. He has been with Specsavers for eight years and was previously store director at its Wishaw store. He is also the main optometrist for home visit services in the Inverclyde area.

Lesley has over 25 years of optical experience and specialises in children’s optical dispensing. She previously worked as part of Specsavers retail team in Scotland for over eight years before partnering with Jonathan at the Greenock store.

The duo plans to build on the store’s reputation in the community by developing its new Specsavers hearing and domiciliary service, for those who are unable to visit the store. The team also plan to support the local area through sponsorships, charity donations and in-store events.

Support from the local community
Lesley Brown, store director at Specsavers in Greenock said: ‘We are settling in very well and are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead.

‘It has been lovely getting to know our local customers and they have been very supportive. Jonathan and I are both very passionate about looking after locals’ eyes and ears and are working hard to exceeded customer expectations.

‘We would like to build on the services we provide the community and have therefore launched a fortnightly hearing clinic as well as a domiciliary service. It is incredibly exciting to expand our offering.’

Extending the store’s offering
As well as offering free hearing tests for those over 40, the Specsavers hearing professionals in Greenock can tell customers everything they need to know about the incredible range of digital hearing aids available.

Meanwhile the store’s domiciliary service, Specsavers Healthcall, provides a comprehensive eyecare service to housebound residents in the area, whether living in their own homes or in care homes. A qualified optician visits customers with a portable eye testing kit and a range of 180 glasses to choose from.
