Specsavers in Wellingborough marked 20 years in the town by welcoming the Mayor and the store’s first ever customer to share in the birthday celebrations.

The team in the Swansgate Shopping Centre celebrated the store’s birthday with cake and balloons and the first customer, Maureen Benham, received an eye test and a free pair of specs. Wellingborough’s Mayor, Cllr Malcolm Ward, also drew a winning raffle ticket for a customer to win back the cost of their glasses.

A word from the director

Optometrist director, Rikesh Chauhan, said: ‘Since we opened our doors in 1998, we’ve been a part of the community in Wellingborough, supporting local activities and looking after our customers with the best in eye care. We’re proud of the service we provide to our customers and it was fantastic to welcome back Maureen who has been a loyal customer since day one.

‘While a lot has changed since we first opened, there is a lot that remains the same. We continue to invest in the latest technology and provide so much more than a simple prescription check, while all our services are provided with the same professional and friendly service that we have always given.’
