A1 Eyewear

Anna Bowen
Assistant Property Development Executive

I’m very grateful to both the Development Bank of Wales and Business Wales for their excellent support. Buying a business can be a nerve wracking experience but their thorough and seamless approach meant that I felt totally confident throughout the purchase.

Huw Owens, owner

Established in 1986, A1 Eyewear is one of Wrexham’s leading independent opticians offering eye tests, glasses, contact lenses and accessories along with a repair and maintenance service.

Local optician Huw Owens has acquired the successful practice with the help of a £50,000 micro loan from the Development Bank of Wales and advice from Business Wales, who helped him to agree a business structure and develop a robust business plan.

He now has plans to further develop the range of eyecare services and eyewear they provide.
