Visitors to Specsavers in Street were treated to a fun day of celebrations to mark a substantial store re-fit.

The store welcomed Glastonbury Town Crier, David Greenway to officially open the new look store while customers were greeted by a larger than life Elton John lookalike on stilts, complete with large specs. A special cake was also available to sample. 

The store supported Mendip District Hospital League of Friends and collections took place throughout the day, raising £60. For younger visitors, a face painter was on hand as well as a bubble entertainer who created weird and wonderful shapes, both in return for donations to the charity.

Store director, Colin Shearer, said: ‘A huge thank you to everyone that come down and joined in the fun. All of the changes have our customers’ needs at their heart and we wanted to make sure we celebrated in style.

As well as a complete revamp, we now have extra testing rooms which will allow us to increase our eye examination capacity, giving customers more flexibility. We also now have the very latest software in optical technology. This links with all our tablet devices making the process of dispensing specs smoother and more tailored to the customer’s needs.’

Digital Precision Eyecare is another new service which will benefit customers, ensuring everyone receives the very best professional care and advice in frame selection and dispensing for their prescription, vision and lifestyle needs.

The technology allows the optical team to help customers select their glasses following an eye examination.  Imaging software on a tablet is used to take an image of them wearing the glasses, which in turn captures a range of essential dispensing measurements. These are unique to the customer and their chosen glasses.
