Sarah Gibson and her team are proud to celebrate 15 years business in the heart of Wincanton.

You are invited to the official unveiling of the new look practice 1st May  2019

Celebrations begin at 12pm

Local independent business woman Sarah Gibson is thrilled to open up the doors to her new look practice in Wincanton on the 1st May.

2019 sees Sarah and her team celebrating 15 years in business – an exceptional milestone for one of the best loved local independent businesses in the area. To celebrate, Sarah has been working hard on the modification and refit of the practice and is looking forward to officially unveiling the new look Sarah Gibson Optometrist to patients, press and the local community.

Sarah says “I cannot believe it is 15 years since I took a huge leap of faith and bought the practice from the chaps who opened it in 1996. Having worked in the practice as the principle optometrist since it opened, I knew Wincanton was a great town to work in, but I had no idea if I could make the practice work with me at the helm. Running a business is an altogether different ball game to being employed and it’s been a steep but generally enjoyable learning curve. There are obviously days when I wonder what madness overtook me when I said “ I want to run this by myself”,  but then I get to work and I am greeted by my wonderful staff and my equally wonderful patients and I think “yes, I am doing the right thing here”. I get to make a significant difference to people’s lives and that, for me, is what it is all about.

The refurbishment was all about bringing the front of house displays up to date and making our customer experience even better than it already is. I hope to be here for at least another 10 years, but don’t ask me to do another major refurbishment! Can I get back in my consulting room, where I belong, so I can have a rest please?”

In addition to the new look practice, celebrations will continue with 15 days of raffle giveaways.  Tickets will be available to buy from the practice from the 1st-15th May, with all proceeds going to Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Prizes include: Sunglasses, Prescription lenses, Wine, Chocolates and many more, all generously donated by our suppliers.

Sarah will announce a winner a day from the 15th May on the new look Facebook page – you can find it here! Be sure to give it a like to be kept up to date on winners and news form the practice.

The celebrations will officially begin at 12pm on Wednesday 1st May, when Sarah will be holding an open day for patients, their friends and families, in the brilliant new look practice.

SGO will be showcasing the whole range of hand painted frames from Matisse and there will be special offers, drinks and nibbles available throughout the afternoon.

“We hope you can join us to take a look at our new look practice on 1st May.  Our community, patients and their families are at the heart of everything that we do, and we look forward to celebrating 15 years in business with you in person!”
