To mark the opening of a new opticians in Welshpool, a stilt walker descended upon the launch party at Mill Lane Retail Park.

Eight, four-legged guest

Specsavers has opened a new £350,000 opticians and, to celebrate its doors opening for business, it held a launch party seeing an approximately eight foot, four-legged stilt walker join the team for the day. Members of the public were also treated to goody bags and sweet treats.

Store director, David Dunlop, says: ‘It was important to us to mark our arrival in Welshpool not only with staff, but with customers and members of the community, and it was fantastic to have such a strong street presence of the day of the launch party with our rather tall special guest, who was a great hit!

‘It’s been a very positive first month of trading since we opened and I look forward to seeing how the business further establishes itself in the community over the coming months.’

Supporting the community

The opticians has created four new jobs and is equipped with the latest technology to support the optical and audiology services on offer.
