Busting the myths

As Specsavers Audiology grows and we open more businesses across New Zealand, we want you to understand the real story behind our business model.

…our first 19 locations are already accounted for and the rollout will build from there. 
Open Pricing  …we believe in fair, transparent pricing that is accessible to all New Zealanders, all the time  …we publish our prices in-store, in our advertising, and on our website. Visit our website to see for yourself.
Product Range  …we have our own-branded ‘Advance’ product range, manufactured by the household names of our industry.  …our ‘Advance’ product range offer the latest technology and is not locked. We also supply a full range of branded and we never set sales targets or product-related KPIs. 
Support Services  …Specsavers Audiology is a franchise business, allowing audiology professionals to profit from their own hard work and build an asset for the future.  …all our audiology businesses have a total support package covering everything from professional development and software systems to back-end business support and marketing.
