Specscart: Changing the scenario of the UK eyewear market

The fate of your startup depends on a number of things. For instance, what is your business idea? What problem does it solve? And why your products are better than your competitors.

Sure anybody can have a great business idea. But to sell that idea takes dedication, passion and commitment. Dedication to your work, a passion to make yourself better every day and a commitment to never stop.

If you run a startup, work in one or have dreams to have your own company someday, you can use a little inspiration along the way. To help you with that, we are here to talk about an inspiring story of one such British startup that has us all surprised with its achievements. Let’s know their story.

What is the story Specscart?

Specscart is a force to be reckoned with in the UK eyewear market. Born in 2017, the very idea behind Specscart is to make glasses more fashionable and affordable. Every product that the company sells including blue light or gaming glasses is highly fashionable and affordable.

Founded by a former Manchester University student Siddharth Sethi, his story is what brought Specscart into existence in the very first place.

Siddharth was studying in Manchester when he met an eyewear accident just a day prior to his exams. He went to an optical store to buy a new pair of spectacles only to get shocked and here is why:

  • The glasses were put on shelves with transparent doors. So, if you wish to try a frame, you first have to contact the shopkeeper. Doesn’t speak of a good customer experience, right?
  • The products were heavily priced. He had to buy them on credit.
  • Even when he bought them, he got to know that his glasses would take about 7 to 10 days to be made.

He might not get his glasses that day, but he got a top-notch business idea that will later go on to reshape the eyewear industry for the better.

He presented the business idea at The Albert Gubay Enterprise Awards in 2017 and won the whole thing. A year later, he also won the Venture Further Award and retail space in the busy streets of Walkden as well.

What is Specscart?

Specscart is a manufacturer and dealer of eyewear. Whatever glasses you can think of, they have them. From prescription glasses, fake spectacles to sunglasses, you can find every type and style of eyewear at the physical and online glasses store.

Specscart is driven by the motive of turning glasses into an easy and fast-moving fashion staple. Just like you have different handbags, shoes, necklaces and earrings to go with different outfits, Specscart works to give that same reputation to glasses in your wardrobe as well.

Apart from selling their products online, they also have stores in Walkden and Bury. You can visit their stores as they have a vast collection of glasses there as well.
