Specsavers in Stratford upon Avon

Specsavers was established 30 years ago by husband and wife, Doug and Mary Perkins. They came up with the Joint Venture concept, where each Store is owned and operated by business partners with the support of a national brand.

Stratford upon Avon Specsavers Opticians opened in 1996 and is owned and run by Jonathan Belcher and Paul Griffiths. In 2013 the Hearcare business was added.  Jon and Paul were joined by Andrew Woodcock the Audiology Partner.

Jon and Paul live locally and are both qualified Opticians. Not only do they direct the business, which currently employs over 40 people, they are often involved in the actual testing of eyes and the fitting of spectacles and contact lenses on a daily basis in the store.

Paul says ' Stratford is a fantastic place to work, we are so lucky and proud to have a Business in such an historic and beautiful town. Stratford upon Avon offers so much to its residents and visitors and we love being part of the community and providing it with our services. We are so grateful to the public of Stratford and the surrounding area for supporting our business over the years, we feel it is our duty and responsibility to give something back to the community'.

Paul continues ' We are always keen to support local charities, good causes, town festivals and initiatives. We are also willing to help out local sports clubs and organisation where possible. We are delighted to be associated with Stratford Town Football Club and supporting their Junior section and its Grasshoppers coaching sessions. You never know we might be helping in some small way to unearth the England players of the future'.
