Specsavers store move will [...]; IN BRIEF.
Specsavers store move will create 10 more jobs A MOTHER and daughter team has invested almost PS400,000 in Colwyn Bay community health care with the expansion and relocation of a longstanding high street opticians, set to open this October.
Specsavers store directors Erica and Rachel Chapman, both from Colwyn Bay, are preparing for the store's relocation from Seaview Road to a larger unit at Bayview Shopping Centre.
Since Erica's arrival as store director in 2013, and the subsequent arrival of her daughter Rachel as joint store director in 2015, demand has grown at Specsavers to the point that larger premises have become essential.
The move will see the creation of 10 jobs in the town over the next 12 months, as well as significantly expanded facilities in store. This is additional to audiology director Filipe Dias who recently joined the store and has revolutionised its audiology offering.
Erica said: "We're so excited for customers to see all the improvements.
"The new store will have four test rooms and space for a fifth in the future. We'll also have a dedicated audiology room on the ground floor."
The store will continue to offer Welsh Eyecare Services, which sees opticians across the country deliver primary eyecare services on behalf of the NHS in the form of targeted clinical tests.
