Loyal customer launches Penzance opticians branch
Post on 8th July 2016
Our Penzance branch chose a loyal customer of 55 years to officially launch the recent relocation.
Ann Nankervis, aged 72, who lives locally, performed the honours and was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a gift voucher as a thank you.
The grandmother of five, who has lost her sight in one eye said: “I have always had excellent care and treatment and never wanted to go anywhere else. I think it is very important for people to get their eyes tested regularly because medical conditions can be picked up.”
Ann’s custom started at 17 when she was seen by business founder the late Miss Joan Bradley and received her first pair of glasses.
In 1978 glaucoma was diagnosed after a routine eye test identified changes. Over the years Ann has had a number of eye operations, including a cornea transplant, and is regularly monitored at the branch to check the pressures in her ‘good’ right eye. She praised optometrist Janet Haynes and branch manager Martin Hulse for their ‘wonderful and professional’ care.
Martin said: “Ann has entrusted her eye care to us for such a long time that we thought it fitting if she launched our new premises. We see her regularly because of her sight problems and have built up quite a relationship.
“We have moved from Morrab Road to a bigger and better location in the town centre with consulting rooms on the ground floor to make it more accessible for customers.”
Our new branch also has the latest digital eye examination equipment, and a new and extensive range of frames, including the latest designer names. A full range of hearing care services is also provided.
Offers, including a £10 eye test and up to 50% off frames, will also celebrate the launch.
