A popular eyewear retailer will soon open its doors at Warwick’s Rose City Shoppingworld, joining a number of new businesses in the centre.

The optometrist is set to take over the space previously occupied by Southern Downs Skin and Laser Clinic next to Coles.

Rose City Shoppingworld marketing manager Louise de Lissa said she believes the addition is going to be a drawcard for the centre.

“I know myself, getting to an optometrist can be absolutely ridiculous,” she said.

“And we haven’t had that mix here for two years… It’ll fit in here perfectly.”

Louise said she knows staff at Specsavers are great with kids and the store will benefit the Warwick community greatly when it opens at the centre in August.

“Our demographic here is pretty much across the board, definitely right through from a young age to the older market,” she said.

“All those things – your hearing and your eyesight – people are looking for those sorts of services so to have it all one location will be good.”

She said many Warwick locals are used to having to take their kids, or themselves, to Toowoomba for Specsavers so the new shop is sure to be welcomed.

Specsavers Warwick is already advertising job opportunities for optical assistants and dispensers to join the team, with multiple full-time, part-time, and casual positions available.
