Taank Wins National ‘Eyewear Retailer of the Year, 2022’ Award

Taank Optometrists, Eyewear Retailer of the Year, 2022

Only 14 months after reopening its doors following a major refurbishment, Taank has fought off stiff competition from independent optometrists around the UK to scoop ‘Eyewear Retailer of the Year, 2022’ in the 100% Optical ‘Love Eyewear’ awards.

As you probably know, back in July 2019, disaster struck when water damage resulting from a fire in a neighbouring Mill Road property destroyed the Taank practice. The team quickly set up a purpose-built pop-up in the car park behind the property as the original practice underwent a complete top to toe renovation. Eighteen months later Taank’s doors opened once again, this time with a cleverly reimagined, sunny space extending across three floors.

Ushering in a new era of eye care

Evident in this new practice is the close consideration of every stage of the client journey, with a thoughtful mix of social and quiet areas to suit every need, raising the quality of eye care to a whole new level. And importantly, contrasting with the modern look and feel, sensitively restored period features speak to the fact that an eyecare practice has existed on this site for more than 100 years.

The renovation was also an opportunity for Taank to double down on its commitment to sustainable eyewear with a range that includes a wider selection of wood and ethically-sourced horn and various customisable frames to suit clients’ needs and style.

Sustainability is good for the community

In addition to Taank’s skilled dispensing, which includes tailored lenses to provide the best visual outcome, The ‘Love Eyewear’ judges picked up on the attention to detail from start to finish and decided to give Taank the award.

Owner and Head Optometrist Anjana Taank commented, “We’re thrilled! This award recognises the hard work we’ve put into rebuilding our practice and is a testament to how we’ve evolved to provide clients with an even higher level of service. It underpins the Taank team’s dedication to excellence, innovation, and importantly, our commitment to the Mill Road community.”

Of course, not all of our efforts go into choosing the best eyewear, we’re also at the forefront of clinical advances in eye care. So, rest assured, when you visit Taank for your eye exam, you really are getting the best of everything. And that’s the way we plan to keep it.

We hope to see you soon!
