On Saturday, Kniaziew Optometry hosted a community barbeque in celebration of its new facility grand opening, which is now located inside the Essex Guardian Pharmacy building, at 169 Talbot Street South.

  Community members were welcomed to enjoy a free hot dog and gift bag, get a tour of the new office, and meet the clinic’s staff.

  Dr. Richard Kniaziew has been an optometrist in Essex Centre for around 40 years. The new Essex facility is his fourth location in town. He also owns clinics in Leamington, Tecumseh, and Chatham.

  “I love the new space,” he said, adding the facility is the same size as his former location, but it is now located in a medical hub with good accessibility.

  Over the past four decades, Kniaziew has watched the community grow. He said he is noticing there are many younger families coming to the area.
