Customer Reviews:

I wish to thank your very attentive staff at the Manchester, Arndale branch for demonstrating that exceptional customer service is still possible in an age when customer service is a secondary consideration, it is refreshing to stumble across a business that has got it so right. I wish your team every success for the future. I have no hesitation in recommending your services not only to friends but to the wider business community.

I would just like to inform of the service I received at the VE Manchester Arndale Centre today.

I had broken my only pair of glasses in a sporting accident and needed another pair asap.I contacted my usual opticians (Specsavers) who could only give me an appointment a week later. I therefore phoned Vision Express Manchester and pleaded them to give me an appointment. The kind-hearted gentleman understood my dilemma and gave me an appointment the same day.

Upon arrival to the store it was clear that they were very under-staffed. I thought I was never going to get my glasses within the hour. I was eventually seen by very friendly Sarah, who was very apologetic for my wait, offered me a coffee and showed me the waiting area for my eye-test.

Paul (a lab technician) in the meanwhile gave me valuable insight into choosing the right frames. I'm a keen sports-person and Paul had given me advice on the various sports glasses available. Furthermore, he gave me helpful advice on promotions and discounts available.

Daniel (the optician) did my eye test. Very professional, polite and informative.

Sarah (I believe the manageress) helped me choose my frames. She was professional, helpful and not too pushy. You could tell she was very honest with her opinions and that was greatly appreciated.

Erica (possibly a lab tech also) finally sat me down, talked to me about different lenses available, worked out pricing and insurance options. Again very informative.

I've never experienced such excellent customer service. Despite being very under-staffed, no-one was ever really rushed when speaking to me. Everyone was very polite, professional, they knew what they were doing and more importantly everyone understood that I needed a pair of glasses asap.

What pleases me the most is that I had one of three glasses within 45 minutes of me choosing them. So to summarise, I phoned VE at 9am, got an appointment for 12noon and got my glasses by 3pm. Vision Express is exactly what it says on the tin.

Thank you VE Manchester Arndale. You've earned a customer for life.
