The team at Specsavers Solihull have recently clubbed together to say a little thank you to a 92-year old couple who have been visiting the store for almost 25 years.

Having got to know them over the years the staff knew they had passions for both gardening and travel and found books on the subjects for them to enjoy, surprising them on their recent visit.

Kind words

The couple started visiting as locals but after moving 30 miles away still made the hour-long journey for their regular eye care check-ups. In a card sent after receiving their thoughtful gifts, the couple wrote; ‘Over the last few years we have not been able to travel as much as we would like but making the effort to visit you all in Solihull has always been a priority. Your warmth and kindness over so many years has been something very special to us both’.

A word from the store director

Store director Brad Parkes said ‘It’s great to have comments like these, it makes me feel very proud, especially as the team organised this all of their own accord. The couple have been special customers us and it has been a pleasure helping them’.
