A local opticians has invested £250,000 in its new premises in Diss, transforming an old butcher's shop into a 'stylish yet friendly' clinic.
Dipple and Conway, which first opened in the town in 2012, moved on September 4 to the building on Market Place.
The business has a long history in the area. In 1916, George Dipple and Thomas Conway opened their first practice in Norwich.
Matthew Conway, great-grandson of Thomas Conway and a director of the business, said: 'We have invested more than £250,000 to completely transform our new building so it offers a stylish, yet friendly, environment for customers of all ages,'
The opticians had seen demand increase so much that customers were having to wait six to eight weeks for an appointment.
