Customers at Bradley Stoke opticians Specsavers can now have their specs made up within the hour following the creation of a new in-store lab service.
The Specsaver store in the Willow Brook Centre has recently invested in a brand new glazing machine from Thornbury-based Essilor Ltd. The state-of-the-art equipment allows for glasses to be glazed onsite meaning certain prescriptions can be made up at the store rather than having to be sent away.
Ed Stanleigh, store director at Specsavers in Bradley Stoke told us: ‘This is a significant investment on our part and one which we’re sure will benefit our customers. The one hour service will give greater flexibility and mean a faster turnaround on some prescriptions. We know that a lot of our customers lead very busy lives so anything we can do to help them save time has to be a good thing.
‘We’re also proud to have sourced the new machine from a local company. We feel strongly about supporting businesses in the area and with Essilor, a subsidiary of the largest ophthalmic lens manufacturer in the world, being in Thornbury, it’s great to be able to get behind an organisation that’s on our doorstep.’
The store has also employed a technician to operate the machine and the one hour service will be available Monday to Saturday.
