A local favourite optician store is planning plenty of celebrations after twenty successful years in Buxton.
After opening in 1996, Specsavers Buxton has continued to offer its services to the Buxton community, located in The Springs Shopping Centre. The store is one of the oldest and most favoured in the centre.
Carlon Stewart, centre manager of The Spring Shopping Centre, said: “Specsavers is one of the most important stores located in The Springs. Over twenty years, the store has continued to reinvent itself, offering the high quality service in optical and more recently hearing services.”
The store is now looking towards June to celebrate in style with its customers. A number of entertaining attractions are soon to be confirmed by the store, as they put the final touches on the celebrations.
Tom Rhodes, store director of Specsavers Buxton, said: “After a successful twenty years in Buxton, we are incredibly excited to announce the celebratory event we have been planning for quite some time now.”
Over the twenty years that Specsavers has been in Buxton, the landscape of opticians has dramatically changed. The inclusion of home visits to those who cannot visit a high street optician unaccompanied due to physical or mental disability displays the extra mile the store is now going for its visitors.
Tom added: “The optician industry is forever changing and reinventing itself and Specsavers Buxton has always been at the forefront of the most innovative solutions to our customer’s needs. Free home eye tests and hearing tests both show how we are tailoring our services to provide exceptional service to our customers.”
In more recent times, Specsavers has expanded the opportunities available to its staff as well through the Optical Apprenticeship programme. This programme is one of the UK’s biggest government-accredited scheme, which offers a one-year apprenticeship to anyone over the age of 16 that requires no previous optical experience. Those that complete it become qualified optical assistants with the chance of full-time employment at Specsavers.
Official announcements will be made in the coming weeks concerning all celebrations at Specsavers Buxton.
