40th Anniversary Celebrations

This year is shaping up to be a good year so far for us here at Richard Petrie’s. Not only have we had two award nominations and celebrated Joanna’s wedding, but this year sees us reaching a great milestone of being in business for 40 years!

To mark this fantastic event we have shared our celebrations with our patients and even had an article in the Derby Telegraph, which you may have seen recently.

We started off our anniversary celebrations with a special event for our RP4 customers. In the last week of April we hosted our RP40 event, we invited our glasses reps to showcase their full collections for our RP4 customers to shop from and receive a special discount during this week. This included reps from our most popular brands such as Ted Baker, Maui Jim and Chloe.

It was a fantastic week, our patients were able to have a wider choice of frames than usual and our regular reps got to join in our celebrations – after all they are the ones that keep us stocked up with our lovely choice of glasses!

We followed this event with a coffee morning to really celebrate our milestone. We were joined by Richard, some of our long standing patients and old work colleagues.

We had freshly baked goodies courtesy of our team, and a wonderful cake to mark the occasion. It was lovely to see Richard back in the practice to share with us the success of the business he started 40 years ago!


We would like to thank all of our wonderful patients who choose us and support us year on year. We couldn’t have made this milestone without each and every one of you!
