Specsavers in Milton Keynes got its customers in the Christmas spirit by inviting a very special visitor to the store this month – Santa Claus himself.

The jolly figure paid a trip to the business on 1 November to get a health check-up ahead of his busy schedule over the festive season.

After taking an eye and hearing test, Santa got the chance to gain expert advice from optometrists and audiologists at Specsavers Milton Keynes before heading back to his grotto at the Centre:MK shopping centre.

Not just for Christmas

Steve Moore, store director at Specsavers Milton Keynes, said: ‘It was brilliant to see Santa in store and we’re pleased to say that, following his tests, he has been given the all clear to deliver presents on his sleigh.

‘While it was great to have a VIP in the store, we provide the same high level of professional care to all of our patients. After all, maintaining your sight and hearing health is for life, not just for Christmas.’

Hearing aids up for grabs

With Christmas being the season of giving, Milton Keynes is bringing further cheer by offering the chance to win two digital hearing aids worth up to £1,995.

Customers can enter the competition by liking and sharing a post on the Centre:MK Facebook page or by submitting their details in store. The winner will be drawn on 30 November.
