Showgrounds Retail Park in Omagh has a new occupant as Specsavers move into the area after a £400,000 investment.
The eyewear company will move from its Market Street premises, which opened in 2007, and marks its 15th anniversary in the Tyrone Company city.
The move will create six new jobs at the Showgrounds premises, with the store hosting a launch party on Saturday April 30, which will be attended by Ulster rugby star Jacob Stockdale.

Store manager and optometrist Donna Harbison said the move was an “important step” for her team.
“We are proud to mark fifteen years of Specsavers by Omagh officially launching our new store at Showgrounds Retail Park,” said Donna.
“This move has been an important milestone for our team, and we are excited to continue to grow with the recruitment of 6 new members.
“We are increasing the capacity of our clinic as well as the services offered in store with our room dedicated to hearing care.
“We have always prided ourselves on using exceptional technologies, and through this investment, we have continued this commitment to testing our patients with the best available.”
Fellow manager Emma Finn thanked members of the Omagh community who have supported the business over the past 15 years.
“Our Omagh customers have always been supportive of us and we can’t wait to see them as we celebrate our anniversary in the city and the official launch of our new store.” said Emma.
“It was a great source of pride for us to be able to serve the local community as we remained open as a primary care point throughout the pandemic.
“Our move, the investment involved and the facilities available in our new store will allow us to continue to provide the best possible service to our customers.”
