About The Spectacle Shop and the team
A team passionate about eyewear.
At The Spectacle Shop, we are at the forefront of the latest eyewear trends and styles, sourcing niche eyewear products that are truly different, and of the highest quality from around the world.
Our friendly and unique approach along with our welcoming shop environment, ensure you feel fully relaxed while enjoying entering the wonderful world of eyewear.
We stock over 1000 frames in every colour, shape, and size you could imagine. Only a fraction of frames are displayed in the shop. Instead of leaving clients to browse hundreds of frames alone, our team bring the frames to you. This allows us to not only show you suitable frames, but it gives a more personal touch to finding your latest look.
Our eyewear styling consultation is a chance to spend time with our team in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. You should never feel obliged to buy at this consultation. Finding the perfect eyewear is best done with thought and consideration as after all, they are the first thing that people see when they look at you.
Our team of four staff have a combined 75 years of optical experience. Everyone in our team has a minimum of a foundation degree in Ophthalmic Dispensing and is passionate about eyewear and customer service. We are committed to giving our clients the best advice and experience we possibly can.
