The team at Specsavers Melton Mowbray are in the frame for a national award.


The store on Sherrard Street is one of three opticians shortlisted for the Multiple Practice of the Year category in the Optician Awards 2020. Judges selected the store on its clinical, commercial and community attributes.


A word from the store director

‘We got the news back in February of this year that we’d been selected as finalists, but then the pandemic put ho­­ld on the final which was due in April,’ comments Specsavers Melton Mowbray store director, Dilraj Gumber. ‘The awards are now running online at an event on Wednesday 9 December, so we’re keeping everything crossed for the night.


‘It’s been a challenging year for so many businesses, and so to have been shortlisted and achieve this recognition is especially poignant given our team’s continued dedication and commitment.’


The Optician Awards 2020 will be premiered live at 7.00 pm on 9 December 2020, for all to watch free of cost to celebrate excellence in optics.
