Fulgoni Opticians celebrates 50th anniversary

Family-owned independent Fulgoni Opticians celebrated its 50th anniversary with a public celebration on March 15, 3pm-7pm, at the Cross Street store in Abergavenny. 

Owner and former head optometrist John Fulgoni, who opened the practice in 1973, said that the team is proud to have reached this milestone with the support of his family and team, and hopes to continue for the next 50 years.  

The practice has stood out by personalising services and reflecting the family atmosphere. Daughter, Francesca Fulgoni, business partner and dispensing optician, said: ‘At Fulgoni’s, we care about all our patients and want them to have a good experience with us, which is something that my dad really encouraged. We serve fresh Italian coffee, vintage sweets and play music from different eras. We have a few patients who have dementia and playing music from when they were young helps them to relax.’ 

Abergavenny Mayor Tony Konieczny commented: ‘I am looking forward to attending the 50th Anniversary celebrations of Fulgoni Opticians. This family firm has been looking after the eyes of the community for decades but also during the severe restrictions of the pandemic.
