Last week we celebrated the Grand Re-Opening of our newly expanded and renovated office.
It’s been almost one year since construction began and while it has been stressful and disorienting I must admit, it was worth it!
We held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with our local Chamber of Commerce and then the party started!
We provided breakfast treats and mimosa’s and then sandwich wraps and spiced cider with cookies and brownies and all sorts of goodies for lunch.
We raffled off a $1000 discount on LASIK and a Saratoga Overnight stay at our local Hampton Inn with dinner for two at a favorite local restaurant. We also had sunglasses and frames donated by our vendors as raffle items.
We were packed with people from the minute we opened until we closed the doors.
We had people who attended the event strictly because they learned about it through social media. One couple travelled from another community 30 minutes away and were not our patients previously.
They ended up winning one of our frame raffles and had a wonderful experience.
We have already experienced a nice bump in sales and patient growth this year. A trend I expect will continue.
People love the new space and the more extensive collection of frames we can offer.
I think people like to go to a business that appears to be successful and up to date. It’s the “wow” factor and we have been hearing a lot of “Wow!” as patients enter the new space!
