Specsavers in Wellington is celebrating the dedication of its staff, who have clocked up more than 250 years of combined service. 

The store opened in 1999 and will mark its 20th year in business next year. Starting with just eight members of staff, the store now employs a 26-strong team. From charity work to professional development, the Wellington team have gained a strong presence in the local community.

‘We’re all incredibly proud to have reached this milestone,’ said store director, Satinder Sidhu. ‘Our store has changed a lot over the years and we’re always looking for ways to build on our services and improve our offering to customers.

‘We have a fantastic team here at Specsavers in Wellington who work hard to go the extra mile for our customers,’ continued Satinder. ‘We want to do our best for every member of staff by supporting career development, encouraging progression and recognising achievements.

‘We’re very proud to have such dedicated staff who work hard to contribute to our success, and I look forward to seeing the team continue to grow in the years to come.’
