Patrick & Menzies celebrates opening of new branch

It’s exciting times for Patrick & Menzies as we celebrate the opening of our fourth North Essex branch. 

The new Manningtree branch in the town’s High Street will open its doors to the public on Monday 20th September.  

It will make a great addition to our existing branches which are already offering top-class eye care to patients in Braintree, Brightlingsea and Mersea. 

We stepped in to take over Manningtree optician Piper and Priem when previous owner Stephen Preim decided to retire.  

Over the past few weeks, the practice has had a full refurbishment, including new flooring, wiring and lighting, a lick of paint and a re-equipped consulting room. The selection of frames on offer has been refreshed and some new ranges will be introduced.  

Although there is a new look, the branch will open with the same familiar faces, as well as some new optometrists joining the team.  

Patrick & Menzies Partner and Dispensing Optician Dan Edwards, said: “As a proudly independent optician Patrick & Menzies has been looking after people’s eyes for more than 30 years. Our professional team always goes the extra mile to take care of our patients and make sure their eyecare is the best it can be.   

“We are really excited to be taking on the Manningtree branch, which will offer fantastic service to customers as well as a greater selection of frames. We are delighted that although Stephen Priem is retiring, he will continue to be a familiar face at the branch, working a reduced number of days alongside new optometrists joining the team.”   

Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, Patrick & Menzies still has an appointment-only policy, so please call 01206 392529 to book before visiting the branch.
