Staffordshire opticians welcoming new faces as two established practices join forces 

1 min read

Two independent opticians in Gnosall and Stafford have merged to safeguard the future of independent eyecare in the local community. 

The Mincher-Lockett Opticians sister practices have joined forces and will continue to trade from a combined eyecare centre in Stafford.  

The merger will allow patients to continue to receive high standards of eyecare, from just a short distance away – with 7 miles separating the two practices. 

All patient records from Mincher-Lockett Opticians in Gnosall, including contact lens details and supply, have been safely and confidentially transferred to the new premises on the county town’s Stafford Street. 

Nigel Terry, Director at Mincher-Lockett Opticians in Stafford, said: “All of the team are really excited for this merger, it’s a fantastic opportunity to combine two practices who really value offering a personalised eyecare service. 

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming the dedicated and loyal patients of the Gnosall practice and, as they will be seeing some familiar faces, we can guarantee their welcome will be a warm one.” 

Established in 1969, Mincher-Lockett Opticians opened as a family-run, independent business and has since developed strong relationships with patients in and around the Staffordshire area. 

Joyce Terry, joint Director at Mincher-Lockett Opticians, added: “Merging our Gnosall and Stafford practices will ensure that our patients will continue to receive an excellent level of eye care at a practice that is just a short drive away, with the added benefits of some fantastic facilities. 

“As we have a close working relationship with the team at Mincher-Lockett Opticians in Stafford, we know that they share our high values and ethics and we trust that they will continue to provide the high standard of care that our patients expect.”
