It’s time to show your true colours

Show your true colours

Things have been rather busy at Allegro Optical over the last few months. Hence our low profile on the blog front. The team have all been working hard helping many clients, old and new. Despite COVID19, we’ve been having a very productive time. We have also been dispensing lots of gorgeous glasses. So many in fact we’ve had to bring in a lot of new brands.

Show your true colours at Allegro Optical

The UK spectacle frames market has, for a long time, been very boring, dominated by “designer” brands, 80% of which are manufactured by one large conglomerate and mass-produced in China. In comparison, the European market has celebrated colour for many a year. The Europeans have featured fantastic shapes and a ‘look at me attitude to wearing wonderful specs’ which many Brits have only been able to look on in admiration from afar.

Well, things are changing on both sides of Saddleworth moor as we are determined to bring something more into Saddleworth life and allow you to show your true colours!

It’s time for something new

It’s no secret that the Allegro Optical team love quality and something a little quirky. Some of our new brands tick just those boxes. LA MATTA frames are no exception. Featuring animal prints and bold colours inspired by the wild La Matta Eyewear express the personality and allure of the modern woman. With intriguing hues and lots of personality, LA MATTA frames are an explosion of colour and detail. 

LA MATTA EGYPTIAN QUEEN from Allegro Optical

La Matta is more than a frame: it is an accessory with which the modern stylish woman can express herself. The frames exude feminine power and female charm. New shapes with decorative elements and semi-precious stones showcase LA MATTA’S vibrant colours. 

La Matta’s latest advertising campaign image is dedicated to a very powerful, feminine and resourceful queen, Nefertiti! We are loving the new collection which is just perfect for a self-confident woman who loves details that are unique in their kind!

Don’t be a wallflower, it’s time to bloom

As opticians, we often wonder why sometimes clients want to spend so much money on something they don’t want others to notice, and often scrimp on that first impression?  Many ladies spend a fortune on footwear but they often forget the first thing people see is our face.  Memorable glasses are a great way to express yourself, show off your own unique features.  Some clients have traditionally spent a large amount on accessories such as shoes, jewellery and handbags, some even collect them,  yet eyewear seems to be considered, by many, as merely a functional device. Well, things have changed.

We remain open for safe eye-care, by Stephen Tighe

The team all wear PPE

Eye-care during a pandemic

Like many other local businesses, the Allegro Optical practice in the Greenfield Centre has had an unannounced spot check by one of the Oldham Borough Council COVID compliance teams. After taking copious notes during the visit the inspector was impressed with our safety precautions. We were of course pleased by their complimentary assessment. They actually said that “there were a lot of businesses in the area that weren’t complying properly, but ours are one of the best they had seen”. In March we made a concerted effort to ensure staff and patient safety. We installed high-quality Perspex screens and electronic entry systems. While many businesses circulated air by opening windows, we knew COVID19 was here to stay and we really didn’t fancy conducting eye exams in sub-zero temperatures so we installed hospital-grade ozone generators. Let’s face it no one wants to shiver through their eye test. We were determined to continue to provide our clients with the warm welcoming atmosphere that they know and love. Saying that we wanted to make things as safe as possible for everyone.  All staff were provided with surgical scrubs, gloves, aprons, face shields, and masks. We also implemented a rigorous Covid sanitisation regime. 

What went well

What particularly impressed the council inspectors were;
  • Track and trace compliance.  
  • The locked door policy to control access and capacity.
  • Staff wearing PPE from top to toe.
  • The UK made Perspex screens were the best the inspector had seen.
  • Designated areas to ensure social distancing.
  • The documented stringent cleaning regime between appointment.
We are proud to remain open and able to provide community eyecare during this difficult time and reassure you that you will remain as safe as possible when visiting Allegro Optical.
