The Paisley opticians has opened the doors of a bigger and better, new-look store on Moss Street, following a £500,000 investment.

Cutting the green ribbon

Specsavers in Paisley welcomed Provost Lorraine Cameron to officially open the store.

Gail Thompson, store director at Specsavers in Paisley, said: ‘We are very excited to welcome locals to our fabulous store on Moss Street, and were thrilled to have the provost here to cut the green ribbon.

‘We can now accommodate more eye and hearing tests and have lots more space for customers to browse our glasses.

‘We are dedicated to providing the best professional service we can and this significant investment is a huge step to ensuring this service continues for years to come.’

Thriving in Paisley

Renfrewshire’s Provost Lorraine Cameron said: ‘I was delighted to help open the new Specsavers store in Moss Street.

‘Having been a part of the community for 25 years, it is brilliant that they continue to offer a service to the people of Paisley.

‘It is important that businesses like Specsavers are able to thrive in Paisley, and Renfrewshire as a whole, at what is an exciting time for the area with the town having been shortlisted for UK City of Culture 2021.’

Celebrating 25 years in the town

The opticians has served the town for the past 25 years. Its new store features six test rooms as well as a hearing assessment room, two repair areas, an additional visual fields room and a dedicated call centre.

There is also a spacious and comfortable customer lounge and seven additional high-tech tablets to make the process of choosing specs even quicker and easier for customers.

The store’s state-of-the-art lab means that the opticians will be able to have most single vision glasses ready for collection the same day as the customer’s appointment.

A Specsavers’ audiologist will also visit the store two days per week to conduct free hearing assessments and staff can also offer a short hearing screening as part of a free health check seven days per week.
