Meet Emma, from OPSM
1. What products, services or experiences do you offer?
Here at OPSM we offer in depth eye health care, an amazing selection of designer frames (including our hero brands; Ray Ban and Oakley) and industry leading lens technology. We want all our customers to see, look and feel their best.
2. What do you love about your store?
At OPSM Stockland we have a wonderful, close knit, family like community which, includes our wonderful patients. We pride ourselves on making sure that every patient we see feels welcomed and valued.
3. Do you have a funny story that you would like to share?
One of our patients likes to knit and crochet socks. One year she made a pair for our Store Manager Emily, and has continued every year since to make a pair for the rest of our staff members. This makes us all feel very special and fashionable LOL.
4. What do you love most about your job?
Sight is arguably one of the most important senses that we have and I love that on a daily basis we get to help our community maintain their vision and see clearly whilst doing so with cool frames for example, Prada or Tiffany & Co.
5. What are some of your favourite stores in Stockland Bundaberg?
Gloria Jeans for sure! We love our coffee at OPSM Stockland. In all seriousness, we are very lucky to be surrounded by amazing stores and people.
6. What do you wish your customers knew before you entered your store?
Some people think they don't need to have an eye test or that it is scary to have one. Eye tests are an important part of everyone's routine health checks. Here at OPSM we are not scary, we are here to help our patients and ensure they feel at ease during the whole journey.
