A bespoke sunglasses and spectacles shop has opened its doors on Market Square in St Neots.

The move was arranged through Brown &Co Barfords, which worked on behalf of a private client to secure a lease agreement with the independent outlet.

The premises, at 36 Market Square, will provide a high quality retail space for owner Kieran Murdoch, who has 13 years’ experience in optics, having worked for two high-end eye wear companies in Soho and Knightsbridge, in London.

K+M Specs will be selling a variety of hand-made spectacles, sunglasses and cases; with affordable good quality products being at the heart of the business ethos, known as ‘wabisabi’ - a Japanese word for perfect imperfection or hand-made.

Speaking about the new shop, Mr Murdoch, said: “The company is still young, but we very quickly realised we needed more space, as well as a retail environment so that people could come and try out our frames.

“Brown&Co Barfords managed to find us the perfect place for our first shop to support our rapidly growing business.”

James Price, from Brown&Co Barfords, said: “St Neots town centre offers a unique mix of retail outlets and business units and we were delighted to help K+M Specs find their new home; negotiating with them on behalf of our client to confirm an agreeable lease for all parties. We wish Kieran and K+M Specs all the very best for the future.”
