To say it wasn’t quite a normal day at Morans Opticians would be putting it lightly…
It was a special day on 16th May as we hosted a Vinyl Factory Open Day, which featured drinks, nibbles, our amazing range of frames and, of course, music!
We loved welcoming both new and old faces to our practice and doing something fun, away from the day-to-day work that still had to be done.
The star attractions were undoubtedly the drinks on offer. Attendees were served our finest homemade cocktails, made lovingly by the Morans team. The menu ranged from the traditional to the unusual; from the ‘Lady Gaga’ (pink gin and tonic) to the ‘Ozzy’ (vodka, tomato juice, lemon and tabasco!). Here’s a friend of the practice Paul West enjoying one of our finest beverages:
As the theme was Vinyl Factory, it was, of course, all about the music. Our record player was the perfect tool to maintain the ambiance by playing all the classics, from Bowie to Blondie, Queen and Madness.
Madness it certainly was; we were almost the victims of our own popularity as the only downside was that we could barely move for people in the shop towards the end of the day!
But let’s not forget about the real stars of the show- the frames! Visitors to our event were entitled to some amazing deals on the thousands of frames and leading designer brands we have on offer.
There were great deals aplenty as we offered 10% off purchases on spectacles on the day as well as 50% on all additional pairs.
Not only were purchasers given a pair of great new frames, our friendly team members were on hand to give them free style consultations to guarantee visitors received their best look possible.
The event ended with the focus again on the music. A local musician provided the last hour of the open day with some live music which only added to the ever-increasing footfall.
We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to pop in- whether it be to look at our range or just for a light tipple. It wouldn’t have been the same without you, so thank you!
The only thing left to do is think about how we can top next year’s event, when we’ll be hoping the practice is packed out again!
And while we can’t guarantee the same level of drinks on offer, we hope to see you popping back into our practice soon for the same great service.
