You should have gone to launch of ‘Specsavers’!

Bray People - - Kilmacanoguediary -

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.
