All eyes on a Blackpool pensioner who officially reopened the new relocated branch

Post on 22nd February 2024

A pensioner stepped into the spotlight when she was chosen to officially open the new relocated branch in Blackpool.

Dorothy Southall performed the honours at Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care, which has moved to a unit on Waterloo Road, not far from the old branch. She received flowers to mark the occasion and in recognition of her loyal custom.

The new larger store features the latest digital eye examination equipment, including an OCT (optical coherence tomography) scanner and an additional testing room, bringing the total to three. There is also a wide range of updated frames, including a larger selection of the latest designer names.

The area manager Claire Connolly said: “We have invested in the new store and wanted to celebrate its upgrade and relocation in style. Dorothy has been visiting us for her eye and hearing care for more than 15 years. She is outgoing and always smiling when she visits the team, which is much appreciated.”

Dorothy, who lives locally, was honoured to be asked to reveal the store’s new look. “Being involved in the official reopening was a really special occasion, and I enjoyed every minute. It was the highlight of my week! It’s brilliant that Scrivens has opened a new, bigger Blackpool branch. The store looks fantastic, and the new range of frames is lovely. I’ve been going to Scrivens for a long time for both my eye and hearing care and always receive excellent service from the team.”
