The team at Rayner and Ridgewell Opticians in Chapel-en-le-Frith is celebrating becoming part of the Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care business.

It follows the acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, of 19 Rayner branches by Birmingham-founded Scrivens.

The acquisition safeguards 75 jobs in total, including three positions at the Rayner and Ridgewell branch in Market Street.

Manager Teresa Beresford said: “Scrivens is a well-respected, family owned business that recognises the value of providing quality optical services on local high streets.

“We are delighted to be joining the ‘family’ and to have the opportunity to provide a seamless service experience for our existing and new customers.”

Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care was founded 75 years ago and now has 171 stores. All 19 Rayner branches will be rebranded to Scrivens.
