It’s true what they say: seeing is believing, and that’s certainly the case when you discover the impressive range at The Spectacle Factory
Counting retail outlets and business units as its neighbours, whether you stumble across it or have planned your visit, you’ll be impressed with the stunning selection of glasses on offer at the Spectacle Factory, housed in Unit A of Dewhurst Row.
Sourced from independent designers from all the world, the impressive show room boasts row upon row of high quality, beautifully-designed frames, and even offers a bespoke service for the discerning customer.
Alongside a collection of 1,200 frames, fantastic customer service is also something The Spectacle Factory pride themselves on. The team favour educating their customers on what’s the best solution for their lifestyle rather than employing overly pushy sales tactics. All customers are also offered free repairs, free adjustments and a free service on their glasses every six months to ensure they’re always perfect.
Every customer is guaranteed their best possible vision which starts with an eye test that lasts 50% longer than the industry average but which is just one part of a unique three step process.
It’s a practice that the experienced team have down to an art.
Their unique approach has earned them a high reputation across Lancashire, including a top rating on Google reviews among the county’s opticians and a 98% recommendation rate among their customers.
The Spectacle Factory embraces progression as much as it’s passion for offering customers the latest trends. Since opening their doors 23 years ago, the family-run company have evolved dramatically to make it the opticians that their customers know, love and return to again and again. They understand that as an integral part of a person’s life, the perfect pair of glasses is essential as they’re wearing them every day or multiple times throughout the day.
Robert Sands has worked in every aspect of the company, from manufacturing to providing the exemplary customer service that The Spectacle Company is renowned for. Understanding the difficulty in choosing the perfect pair of glasses, he authored the aptly named ‘How to Choose the Perfect Glasses’, which is available to order for free via their website.
“We sit down with someone, before they even try any of the glasses on, and discuss their past experiences, what their needs are and what aspects of their vision they want to improve. Also we want to know our customer’s character because your glasses really do have an impact on what you’re trying to portray.
“From there we can make it really easy to find there perfect pair of glasses.”
Sunglasses have also become a more important part of everyday life, with experts recommending their use to protect eyes against UV rays. Buying glasses, and then sunglasses with the adapted lenses can prove to be expensive, and, with that in mind, The Spectacle Factory are currently offering customers, on purchase of a pair of glasses, a free set of their equivalent lenses fitted to a pair of sunglasses.
We ask Robert his opinion on the latest trends following his trip from the eyewear show at Milan’s Fashion Week. “The trend has reversed from the bolder, bigger frames to more minimalist, thinner frames, particularly rounder shapes. Gold is also making a comeback for ladies’ eyewear. We help each customer find the right variation for them.”
