Blankstone Opticians in the Press
Blankstone explains 25 years of success in the opticians’ business
I am a proud Liverpudlian born into a city that’s always loved its labels. In the so-called ‘militant 80s’, whilst national media were busy focusing on Derek Hatton and Liverpool’s politics, i was busy planning on launching a boutique practice aimed at the city’s office market and discerning shoppers.
To say we’ve never looked back would be to hide all the ‘swings and roundabouts’ of running a successful business!
We opened for business in 1992 and have seen the wealth creation in the city…from when urban living was first mooted to the present day where (thankfully), some customers buy specs and sunglasses from us like they buy shoes.
