Rejoice, Trendy Nerds! Warby Parker Set Up Shop in Boulder
Popular eyeglasses retailer Warby Parker is setting up shop in Boulder as its first Colorado store location.
If you’re like me, you want to look styling while hanging glass and plastic or metal on your face to see. Warby Parker is a well-known internet retailer that not only provides customers with stylish glasses and sunglasses options, but gives back as well!
Lucky for all of us, the brand has opened its first Colorado location in Boulder — on Pearl Street, of course.
Warby Parker was founded in 2010 and has garnered itself quite the positive reputation for prescription glasses and sunglasses. Part of the appeal has been the store’s flat price of $95 for prescription glasses, and the fact that you can try online orders at home before committing to purchasing. PLUS, for every purchased pair, the brand will give a pair to someone in need.
Not that we needed an excuse to visit Colorado more often, but now we have an excellent one,” said co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa in a statement. “Our first sore in the state, in the heart of downtown Boulder on historic Pearl Street, is the home base we’ve been eager to build for years — and it has the best mountain view of any Warby Parker store in existence.”
I mean … duh.
To build up excitement for the store opening, the brand released an exclusive pair of sunglasses in a cool aqua blue. The store will be decorated like a library (fitting for a glasses store), complete with a reference desk and books to peruse. The Boulder store is only one of 50 Warby Parker locations across the U.S. and Canada.
