A SPECSAVERS branch destroyed in a Glasgow fire has reopened.

The Sauchiehall Street blaze on March 22 forced the shop to close.

But staff celebrated at the weekend as the store reopened to the public.

Scottish TV presenter Jennifer Reoch officially opened the store in its new base in Buchanan Galleries, cutting the ribbon to mark a new beginning for the opticians.

Clyde 1’s roadshow led the party at the store, with DJ Gavin Pearson playing host and providing entertainment, music and competitions to celebrate the launch. Meanwhile an array other special guests on the day included the Pollock United football team, which is sponsored by the opticians, as well as SFA referee Euan Anderson.

Store director Arlene Stephenson said: “This is a proud day for everyone at the store. In just three short months we have bounced back and are excited to be back in business in this prime spot.”
