SPECSAVERS, Portadown, is hoping to offer customers an even better service after undergoing a refurbishment.

The store directors have made a significant investment in the refurbishment, which marks the store’s 18th birthday, with the aim of increasing customer satisfaction. Improvements include new frame displays, mirrors and a brighter, lighter space.

JP Rice, store director said, “Since taking over the store in 2007 Michael (Kennedy) and I realised that redecoration and a little bit of renovation was required. We wanted to create a more welcoming store for everyone to visit, and felt that doing this prior to the store’s 18th birthday in December 2012 would be an excellent idea, and a nice way to set ourselves up for all the new and exciting plans that we have for 2013.

“Given the volume of optical and hearing customers that we have in store from week to week, a brighter and more structured interior was required. As a result of the store refurbishment, we can now offer a better service to all our customers, and help them to “see” a little more clearly.”

The new store interior is considerably brighter, which makes it easier for people to choose glasses. The store also has two testing rooms, meaning customers will not have to wait very long for their eye test. The hearing centre is open fortnightly on a Monday from 9am through to 5.30pm.

Specsavers has two directors, who each have a considerable number of years of experience under the Specsavers banner, and a team of 17 people. There are four opticians, and three qualified dispensing opticians, all of whom offer the highest level of customer service on a daily basis.

Leading fashion house, Emporio Armani, has brought a touch of Italian chic to the high street, with the introduction of a glasses range at Specsavers. The range encapsulates the sophisticated and sleek style of Emporio Armani. Fashionistas can be sure to make a standout specs statement with a choice of 24 styles, each designed by the team responsible for the fashion collections seen on the catwalks.

From vintage inspired, tortoise-shell frames to deep purple and two-tone pinks for the girls, through to the classic rectangular frame with a hint of 1960s Mad Men style for the guys, customers can select two pairs of Emporio Armani glasses for £125.
