Retail director Lynne Sangster, who has worked at the High Street store since it opened, said: "We are proud to be a provider of vital healthcare services to the people of Alloa, as well as becoming a champion of the high street since we first opened.

"Not only have we got to know so many of our regular customers, but I’ve also got to witness members of staff progress in their careers and see the stores’ equipment advance. We look forward to providing vital health services for many more years to come."

To celebrate the special anniversary, staff will be entering their 20th year in brand new uniforms and undertaking a range of activities throughout the month, including giving away designer frames in store.
