Marcus Bland and his daughter, Sarah, work seamlessly together. This father and daughter team at Mt Eliza Optical have been working together for around three and half years and love every minute of it - including the fact that the new premises is just 5m from Ritchies supermarket, which means the petty cash can get a great daily workout.
“Getting to banter and have a joke with our clients makes our job enjoyable and hopefully our clients leave with smiles on their faces,” the pair says. “We don’t always agree with each other,” says Sarah. “But that’s what makes it interesting,” continues Marcus.
“Getting to work with family is so rewarding and we jell well,” says Sarah. “I’ve learnt an array of skills just by watching and imitating how my dad interacts with clients. I’m now serving clients who remember me as a toddler.
“We’d love to meet some new faces. Come in and have a browse, a chat and a laugh.”
