Bowleys recent closure in Melton Mowbray

April 4th, 2013

As you may be aware Bowleys Opticians in Melton Mowbray has sadly recently gone into liquidation. It is always a shame when another independent Optician closes its doors after many years of providing independent optometric and dispensing care and service, but unfortunately it is a sign of today’s current marketplace and harsh competition from the many high street multiple chains. In 2012 it was estimated over 300 independent Opticians were lost from our high streets. A worrying and no doubt growing statistic.

As we have had many patients come to us that were previously registered with Bowleys since the closure, we have made enquiries on behalf of these patients to obtain their optometric records from Bowleys receivers as some with longstanding conditions or concerns have wanted to have them to be transferred to ourselves. If you do wish to apply for your records from Bowleys you can write to:

Mr Sam Shepperd

MB Insovency

Aston House

5 Aston Road North



B6 4DS


It is, however, not usually required to obtain your previous records to register with us, a copy of your previous prescription is helpful but we can neutralise your existing spectacles to find the relevant prescription powers and use that as starting point and also to assess whether you require a change in prescription after our eye examination. If you are looking to continue having the same high level of care, expertise and the best quality spectacle frames and lenses that you have been happy with at Bowleys then please do come and see us and we will be more than happy to welcome you.
