At Specsavers, we’ve based our success on bringing in talented people and giving them what they need to flourish. This includes the latest testing equipment and in-store software, from iPads offering Digital Precision Eyecare to customer lounges and dedicated Visual Field testing rooms- we’re always championing the most up-to-date optical and retail technology.

Recently, a number of our stores have undergone exciting makeovers designed to pave the way for the Specsavers stores of the future. Our flagship store in Sutton-in-Ashfield, for example, was completely revamped back in August in order to bring the latest in optical technology to local customers and set the pace for optics moving forward.

With Optical Assistants now able to fit glasses using specialist imaging software on tablet devices, teams at stores such as Sutton-in-Ashfield can ensure they’re delivering both the perfect fit for each customer and, in turn, an outstanding level of service.

Stores such as Specsavers Melton Mowbray have also had refits in response to an increase in customer demand. Thanks to a refurbishment of facilities, Optical Assistants can now offer customers initial services in a dedicated pre-testing area, called the Diagnostic Suite.

As Nigel Davidson, Retail Director at Sutton-in-Ashfield, explains, the adjustments made to stores in recent months have all been completed with staff in mind:

We also focused our refit around our staff, supporting the amazing team we have here. It’s so important that we have a happy team- creating the right culture ensures we offer the very best customer service.’

Specsavers stores have a commitment towards maintaining the right environment for their Optical Assistants to flourish in. Positioned at the frontline of customer service, our Store Directors consider it essential that their Optical Assistants have the right atmosphere and tools at their disposal to continue delivering great service to their community.
