Founded in 1938 by qualified optician and pharmacist Solomon Scriven, Scrivens Opticians started operating from the heart of the Midlands, with a focus on customer care and excellent eye care service.
Scrivens’ business expanded rapidly at the end of the Second World War, and by the early 1950s saw new stores opening in London and Sheffield.
It was during this same period that a hearing aid service was introduced into Scrivens Opticians practices to provide an additional dimension to their service and increase customer choice.
Today, there are over 140 stores across England and they are continuing to expand. As well as Scrivens Opticians, over the years they have acquired a number of practices to extend their branches even further North, East and South. These include Ronald Brown Opticians, Optique Opticians, Eye Check Opticians, selected branches of Rayner Opticians and Lancaster & Thorpe Opticians, Tillett Adams Opticians, Walker & Norris Opticians in Herne Bay, Lords of North Walsham Opticians, Everybody’s Optician in Fishponds, Fakenham Optometrists, Stokes Opticians in Bolton, J Ellis Opticians in Yardley, Direkt Optik in Colchester and Crown Optical in Thirsk.
Their aim is to provide all customers with fantastic customer service and eyecare on a local level. They also apply these principles to their hearing service. The expansion of Hearing Care (formerly The Hearing Company), their hearing care service, has boosted their continued steady growth, and they now provide hearing care in many external optical retailers. Hearing Care now boasts a hearing care service in over 200 outlets nationwide.
Scrivens Opticians has been, and still remains, a family company built on solid foundations. At Scrivens Opticians, their mission is to make sure you get the service and care needed for you and your whole family.
As your Local Optician, Scrivens Opticians are dedicated to providing all their customers with a personal service that takes into account their individual requirements and preferences. From their thorough eye tests, to their huge selection of frames that includes well loved classic styles and the very best modern looks, as well as carefully chosen Designer ranges, they put the customer at the forefront of all their thinking.
