Specsavers opens job-creating new branch

Specsavers has opened a new branch in Alcester, Warwickshire, creating four jobs.

The family-run international opticians chain has taken over the former Post Office site at 36 High Street.

The building became vacant after the Post Office moved two years ago.

The new store is run by the same directors as another shop in Stratford-upon-Avon – Paul Griffiths, Jonathan Belcher and Andrew Eaves.

Property agency John Truslove represented landlord Telereal Trillium and secured Specsavers as a tenant on a ten-year term. Specsavers was represented by Tom Raban of Montagu-Evans.

Belcher said: “We’re really excited to be here in Alcester where our aim is to offer the same level of dedicated clinical eye care and support that we offer in Stratford to the local Alcester community.”

Ben Truslove, a director of the John Truslove agency, added: “We are delighted to have helped our client secure such a prestigious tenant as Specsavers, a well-established high street chain.

“It has been a challenging time for retail so it is good news for Alcester that this prominent building is back in use, creating four new jobs. It also shows there is still demand for retail space in this area.”
