Global Optical Group Specsavers Celebrates 10 Years in Spain

Specsavers Opticas is part of the World’s largest privately owned optical group which has revolutionised the eyecare industry. Founded 31 years ago in the UK, it is now an International retailer with more than 1,600 stores across 10 countries and is the third largest optical group in the world. Specsavers Opticas benefits from economies of scale and brings low cost, high quality optics to the market. Specsavers arrived in Spain 10 years ago and is celebrating this important milestone in April and May with birthday events, giveaways and special offers. They are inviting the local community to come and celebrate with them at their nearest store.

The first Specsavers Opticas opened in Javea on the Costa Blanca in April 2006 to provide customers with quality, professional eyecare at low prices. Their fully qualified optometrists use the latest technology to provide a comprehensive eye examination including digital retinal photography to capture images of the back of the eye. Digital Precision Eyecare technology is also used to calculate important measurements needed to fit your lenses. Specsavers Opticas have opened eight stores on the Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and Mallorca, creating 68 jobs and bringing professional, excellent value eyecare to the Costas.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary Specsavers Opticas in Marbella and Fuengirola will be offering free eye tests, special offers such as glasses for just 10€ and running the popular Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition throughout April and May. To join in the celebrations and enter the competition, pop into your nearest store, visit the website www.specsavers.es or find SpecsaversOpticas on Facebook.

José Ángel Moral-Tajadura, Retail Development Consultant and Business Development Manager for Specsavers Spain commented, “We are very proud to have succeeded in Spain despite the financial crisis and become known for our low prices, quality products, excellent customer service and professional services. We look forward to the next ten years and invite the local community to come and visit their local stores in April and May to take part in fun activities and take advantage of some amazing promotions.”
