All eyes on our sunny vibes

Summer’s in full swing now and we’ve barely had time to cool off since we last shared our practice news.
We’ve been busy as usual – so whether you’re basking by the pool in exotic climes or chilling out in your garden at home, pour yourself a Pimm’s and unwind with our catchup blog.

Award win

Those of you who read our spring blog might remember that we won the award for Sidcup’s most loved business.
This meant that we were automatically shortlisted for the Bexley Business Excellence ‘Love Your Local Business’ award too…and we’re delighted to announce that we’ve also picked up that gong!

As the only nominee that hadn’t entered themselves and filled in a questionnaire to enable the judges to know more about the business, we genuinely didn’t expect to win. However, one of our fantastic clients found herself in the right place at the right time and sang our praises to the panel – so many thanks to Maree!

We’d also like say a massive thank you to those of you who voted for us earlier in the year and to all of our customers for your continued support and loyalty – although awards are amazing, our relationship with you is the greatest prize we can win, so we really do appreciate it.

Winners reception

After our award triumph, we were invited to attend a winners reception evening hosted by the main event sponsors, online supermarket Ocado.

And as part of the event we were treated to a tour of their huge automated warehouse and it was a really interesting to see how the world of online shopping actually works.

The reception was a real eye opening experience and we recommend that you check out Ocado’s YouTube videos to see the groceries are picked and packed – it’s probably not how you’d expect.

New store assistant

The Love your Local Business award wasn’t our only success this summer, because we’ve also welcomed a fab new person to our team – Mandy Pannu.

We first heard about Mandy on Facebook when we came across a post from a former colleague asking if there were any opticians in the area looking for a new store assistant. We then invited Mandy for an interview, where she really impressed us excellent retail experience and her passion for spec fashion.

Mandy’s currently working with us four days a week and helping out with everything from meeting and greeting to overseeing orders, so we hope you’ll join us in giving her a warm welcome to the Wright Eyewear family!

We hope your summer has been as fun as ours – look forward to more exciting snippets on all things eyewear in our next blog.
