Staff at Glasgow Fort celebrated their 1st birthday with a spec-tacular day of fun, entertainment and a special visit from mischievous guest.

Marking its first year of caring for the eyesight of people in Glasgow East, everyone’s favourite Minion, Dave, joined the Glasgow Fort team in a fun-packed day of birthday celebrations.

Entertaining guests as they visited the store, Dave the Minion helped celebrate in style as the store provided a face painter and balloon modeller for the kids, stilt walker, Specsavers selfie station, goodie bags and fantastic offers and giveaways.

A word from our store director

Catriona Pinkerton, director at Specsavers Trongate, said: ‘We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our first year working as part of the Glasgow Fort and wanted to celebrate in style.’

The new hi-tech store brings together Specsavers’ years of expertise in taking care of the nation’s hearing to Glasgow, following a £500,000 investment to improve the service the local store can offer the community.

And with extended opening hours including Monday - Friday 10am -9pm, Saturday 9am-8pm and Sunday 10am-7pm – there will be plenty of opportunity for customers to stop by.
