You should have gone to launch of ‘Specsavers’!
THOSE frequenting the Main Street may have noticed a new face amongst the shops with a brand new Specsavers having taken up residence at number 72.
Optometrist Hugh Garrett McShane fell in love with Bray during many holidays to the area and decided to open up shop with optician Diana Doll.
The shop employs two people from Bray and two from the Greystones area. An in-store balloon modeler attended last Saturday for the store’s official opening event.
There were also some great voucher giveaways and other entertainment in the shop attracting much attention from the glasses-wearing public.
Specsavers is stocking a number of designer brands, including Jasper Conran, Red or Dead, Monsoon, and fcuk. Contact lenses are also available.
Specsavers will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. on Saturdays.
Despite the ‘current climate’ Spec- savers continues to do well globally, with a reported annual turnover of over €1 billion.
Since 2003 a quarter of a million glasses have been collected and recycled by Specsavers stores for Vision Aid Overseas for use in developing countries.
