As Specscart – the Britain-based eyewear company – celebrates the first anniversary of its Urmston store launch, the time is now ripe to recognise and commend their incredible strides in revolutionising the country’s vision care. By eliminating intermediaries from the loop of manufacturing, selling, and buying glasses – Specscart has been able to cut costs, transfer benefits to the end customers, and provide 24-hour doorstep delivery for single vision lenses.
Specscart’s Backstory: The Common Man’s Journey from being a Customer to a Producer
Founded by the young and zealous – Sidharth Sethi – Specscart emerged as an attempt to topple gate-keeping within the United Kingdom’s eyewear industry. When Sid Sethi was a student in the University of Manchester, he was faced with an unforeseen situation. Just a day before his examinations, Sid broke his glasses and had to scour through the streets of Manchester to find an eyewear store that would provide him prescription spectacles the very next day.
Alas, young Sid was left disheartened as there were no stores in the entire Manchester that provided next-day delivery of glasses. Sid had to, undoubtedly, struggle through his examinations, but the entire experience enlightened him with the idea of Specscart. Premised on ingenuity, innovation, and empathy, Specscart began as an eyewear brand for the common man.
When ordinary citizens and young minds, like Sid Sethi, take on the reins of entrepreneurship, the outcome is truly magical and a sight to behold. By having a personalised vantage point on both sides of the spectrum, Specscart has been able to cater to the niche demands of customers, and their expansive portfolio of 5 star reviews on Google and Trust Pilot is a testament to the same.
After a mere five years, the company has been able to expand their presence to various focal points of Manchester, with the Urmston store being the latest accolade in their kitty! In a very short time span, Specscart’s rapid growth and proliferation has been noteworthy!
