Opticians expand with new store in Holbeach

A local opticians will expand with a new store on Holbeach High Street next year.

Scheduled to open in early March, customers will be greeted by familiar faces in the form of Specsavers store directors Ian Stradling and Neil Stradling, who are both directors at the Bourne and Spalding stores.

The leadership team will be joined by a highly-qualified team of locals, which includes five new roles which have been created to cater for the community’s eyecare needs.

The store will be located at 16-18 High Street, which housed the former Co-op Pharmacy, and has a dedicated audiology room alongside an optical testing room, contact lens area and dispensing area.

Enhanced Optical Services (EOS) will also be on offer at the store.

This means that optometrists will be able to provide treatment for a number of minor eye conditions in store.

Anyone experiencing symptoms such as pain, redness or flashes of light in their vision can access these services.

Neil said: “We’re very excited about welcoming customers into our new store.

“We have a very strong and capable team around us and we’re looking forward to bringing high-quality eyecare to the community, as well as contributing more widely by supporting local groups and charities in the area.”
