Staff at the Maidstone Specsavers store have completed their 25th year in trading in 2017.

Specsavers Opticians in Maidstone first opened in 1992, with 5 members of staff. Now, it employs 75 people, including 12 opticians and 5 lab technicians, and has 16 testing rooms.

The store is now one of the biggest and most successful Opticians in the South East region – including London.

A huge milestone

Sanjay Patel, store director at Specsavers in Maidstone, says: ‘Without the continued support of the Maidstone community we wouldn’t have had such a successful 25 years of trading. Through our recent investments at the store, we want to ensure that we’re offering the highest standards of optical and audiology services, meeting customer demand and delivering an excellent service.

‘We’ve replaced traditional reception desks and staff now meet customers as they enter the store and register them for their appointment on a tablet device, creating a spacious environment to display the store’s 1000 frames.’
