Specsavers in Market Street shortlisted for national award
SPECSAVERS Opticians has been named as a finalist in the Association of Optometrists (AOP) Awards, which recognises and celebrates outstanding talent and contributions in the optical sector.
The store in Market Street is one of three finalists in the category of
Practice of the Year.
The award celebrates practices which engage in educating customers; show a flair for products and services; and which place an emphasis on looking after every customer on an individual level.
Store director Sarah Burchett was delighted the store, which has 27 staff members, had made it to the shortlist in this category, which is sponsored by Optos.
‘This is a real testament to the team for all their hard work, dedication and commitment, not just to the store, but also to the whole Bailiwick community,’ Sarah says. ‘We are nothing without a strong team, and it’s important the staff are supported and recognised for their hard work and dedication to the store. We are very proud to be representing Specsavers at the AOP Awards 2018. To win this award would be amazing, so please support us and vote.’
The AOP Awards recognise the highest levels of achievement in UK optics, and saw a 75% increase in entrants this year. To accommodate its growing popularity, the awards will again take place at leading trade event, 100% Optical.
AOP chief executive, Henrietta Alderman, says: ‘The AOP Awards are about recognising practitioners who contribute so much to the public and profession. With this year seeing more unique entries than ever before, our finalists have achieved so much by getting this far.’
Voting has now opened for the awards – with voting closing on Tuesday 12 December. The results will be announced at a black tie dinner on Sunday 28 January 2018.
Please note there is only one vote per person for each category.
