JUST weeks after fire destroyed their store on Sauchiehall Street, Specsavers have secured a new city centre location.

The opticians is set to reopen in one of Glasgow’s busiest shopping centres, Buchanan Galleries, in June.

Store director Sarah Freel confirmed the Buchanan Galleries store will feature five test rooms equipped with the latest clinical equipment for eye examinations and soundproof technology for audiology services.

Freel says: “The fire was a devastating blow for everyone who worked at Sauchiehall Street but we’ve worked hard to turn things around and are delighted to be returning to the high street so soon.

“We’re also excited to have all our staff back under one roof as they are currently working from other stores in the vicinity.”

Buchanan Galleries’ manager Kathy Murdoch said: ‘We’re delighted to welcome Specsavers to Buchanan Galleries and it’s a fantastic addition to the centre’s line-up of leading brands.”
