Scottish TV icon ‘Mrs Mack’ is urging folk to take the ‘High Road’ to the new hearing centre at Specsaver’s in Arbroath’s Abbeygate.
The new hearing service will operate across Tayside, with regular clinics in Specsavers’ Arbroath, Dundee, Perth and Forfar stores.
‘Take The High Road’ star, Gwyneth Guthrie, who played the straight-talking Scot in the soap from 1987 to 1995, had her own hearing tested to mark the launch of the new service.
The actress put her hearing to the test when she took to the hot seat in the Dundee clinic as the Tayside service’s first customer for a free hearing check-up.
Gwyneth said: “Mrs Mack was never shy of sending someone off with a ringing remark in their ear and after many years of working in TV, with so much hustle and bustle and noise, this was the perfect opportunity for me to have a hearing check.”
The opening follows a substantial re-investment, bringing Specsavers’ years of experience in taking care of the nation’s hearing, using the latest technology, to more people across Angus.
Jamie Buchan, store director of Specsavers Arbroath, said: “Our team has been part of the Arbroath community for many years so it’s incredibly exciting to expand our offering to take care of locals’ eyes and ears.
“We’ve made a further investment in the store to offer more people across the area a quality, convenient and thorough hearing assessment, hearing aid and aftercare service. We would also like to welcome our new director of hearcare, the award winning hearing aid dispenser, David Parsons RHAD, to the business.”
David Parsons, director of Hearcare at Specsavers Hearing Centres, added: “I find my job very rewarding as a direct result of finding the best hearing aid to suit a person’s lifestyle and improve their quality of life.
“We would welcome anyone to contact the Arbroath store for a free hearing assessment with our highly trained team or ask advice on hearing problems.”
