Complete Eyecare, an independent eyecare centre based in North Oxfordshire, is to expand its facilities and services within the region having purchased new premises in High Street in Banbury. The property was previously occupied by Charles Clinkard Fine Footwear.
The three storey building, totalling 3,700 sq ft, is in the main pedestrianised area of Oxfordshire’s largest market town.
Barry Lever, Owner of Complete Eyecare, said: “Banbury was the ideal town to open my own opticians in 2012 and the business has continued to grow in popularity year on year. Complete Eyecare’s ethos of offering independent, personal care will continue with the move to 13 High Street, Banbury. We will also be able to increase the facilities we offer, including an on-site optical laboratory making complete spectacles within 30 minutes. We are also introducing a full state of the art hearing care clinic for diagnosis and treatment of many hearing loss problems. I would like to thank the team at White Commercial Surveyors for their assistance with this move and ourgrand opening takes place in the early part of next year.”
Harvey White, Commercial Property Negotiator at White Commercial Surveyors, added: “This building will provide greatfacilities for Complete Eyecare and allows the business to invest in the region. The transaction follows a spate of lettings and sales of retail premises by White Commercial, including 66 High Street, 48 High Street, 36a Church Lane, 4 Broad Street, Church Lane etc. Further announcements are also due for White Commercial as the region appears to continue to attract both national and local retailers providing a choice and mixture of retailing experiences.
Retail investment within the region is exemplified by the local authority’s recent purchase of the main Castle QuayShopping Centre where development has started on a major expansion of the scheme incorporating a cinema, hotel, foodstore and further independent retailers.”
