The Welshpool team is welcoming members of the public to join them at their launch party at Mill Lane Retail Park on 20 January.

Entertainment at opticians

Following a £350,000 investment to open the new Specsavers store, locals are invited to a fun-filled day including a quadruped, giveaways and discounted sight tests.

Customers will be greeted by Welshpool store directors, David Dunlop and Lowri Evans. Mr Dunlop is also the director of the Newtown store, which he opened 11 years ago.

He says: ‘It’s a proud time to open the business here in Welshpool so we wanted to mark the occasion by hosting a day that all members of the community could enjoy, regardless of whether you need an eye test.

'We’ve got goody bags for children with colouring books and balloons to keep them entertained, as well as giveaways for the adults.’

The launch party will take place all day, from 9am – 5pm, on Saturday 20 January.
