A brand new £400,000 Specsavers store in Harlow opened its doors on Saturday 12th December and to celebrate, the team hosted a Fun Day Extravaganza for local residents to enjoy.

Simply the best

Specsavers Harlow, previously located at 1 Eastgate and with over 23 years' experience in the area, has now moved to its larger premises at 10 – 12 Broad Walk. The 4,495 sq ft space will be home to the latest innovations available in the eye health industry and the team cannot wait to invite their existing and new customers through their doors.

Fun Family Day 

A Fun Day Extravaganza – complete with a Christmas vibe – started at 1030am when the local councillor, Tony Hall, cut a celebratory ribbon alongside team members. Then the party fun began! A free Christmas Creative Station was set up for children to enjoy. Free glittery face painting and balloon modelling kept little ones amused, and even Santa made a guest appearance. Free festive drinks and snacks were available too for the family to enjoy.

Free advice

On the day, the team were on hand to talk to customers about their eye care needs, showcase the latest fashionable glasses, and advise on frame selection and lens options using the latest technology.

New directors say hello

Dedicated directors, John Parson and Elaine Green, have recently retired and have passed on the leadership to new directors – Neha Patel and Sarah Flowers– who bring over 40 years’ experience to Harlow.

What is new in store?

With a total re-fit cost of over £400k, the facilities include 8 sight-testing rooms, a specific DVLA fields testing area and a dedicated hearing room with its own portable hearing booth. Also available is brand new cutting-edge tablet technology, Digital Precision Eyecare that takes a customer’s facial measurements when dispensing glasses to give a personal fit. A ‘magic mirror’ camera is another new feature in the store that enables customers to try on multiple frame styles, ensuring they receive the best and most accurate service possible.
