The Team at Specsavers in Thetford celebrated 11 years of service this month.

Happy Birthday to the store

The store was opened by directors Marc Mitchell and Paul Clark, who had met during Paul’s pre-registration year. In 2007 they founded the opticians and audiologists at 20 Riverside Walk and in 2017 Rakesh Penmetsa joined them as an ophthalmic optician director.

A fantastic team

Paul, who has been working for Specsavers for nearly 30 years, said: ‘It’s always great to celebrate our anniversary together in store. We’ve built a fantastic team of staff here, who are passionate about helping our customers with their sight and hearing. I’m looking forward to serving our community for a further 11 years.’

Since it opened the store has built to three consulting rooms and has 20 members of staff, with plans for expansion in the future.
