Bethnal Green Celebrates Success

Monday, 12 October 2009


Specsavers in Bethnal Green Road were giving out free cake, sweets and goodies to thank the local public for all their support.


All week the store will also be offering 5% discount on glasses. This offer is on top of the 2-for-1 deal that is currently running on all frames from the £125 designer range, including single vision scratch resistant Pentax lenses. In addition, the 5% discount extends across all store promotions, including those in place for students and the over 60s.


Rupesh Halai, optometrist at Specsavers says: 'We invited Bethnal Green residents to celebrate our five years here as after all, without them we wouldn't still be here.


'It was great to see people come down to the store, meet all our team members and receive 5% off their glasses on the day. We were happy to see people advantage of the free food and bargains specs!'
