Last month, I took a trip down to Soho, New York based on a recommendation by Gayle King. She recently visited Warby Parker to select new frames. Based on her rave review, I said let me go see too!
There are various showrooms in New York, however there are additional showrooms across the country! Not one near you, don’t worry – Warby Parker has this great program for anyone who love convenience!
Get this! They will send you up to 5 pairs of glasses to try on at home for 5 days free, even include a pre-paid return shipping label to send them back to Warby Parker with no obligation to buy (this is offered to anyone in the contiguous 48 states).
And…..if you’re not 100% satisfied with your new glasses for any reason (any reason), call them or send an email – a pre-paid return shipping label will be sent allowing you to return your glasses for free. Not even a question asked!
Great styles, great selections and a friendly staff I found at the SoHo showroom! I love their dove-gray and signature blue eyeglass case! Not to mention, their website takes in consideration the customer who wears glasses! Great fonts, easy to read and not too much, but just enough information to get on your way to do a selection with their virtual models!
However, the most important thing that I love about Warby Parker is for every pair purchased, they give a pair to someone in need!
Eye exams and eyeglasses can be quite costly. I without a thought, get my routine exam and every year look to see the latest frame styles! As for others, it’s a struggle just to obtain an examination and then glasses.
Warby Parker’s co-founder Neil Blumenthal previously served as VisionSpring’s director and helped pioneer VisionSpring’s model to train low-income women to sell affordable glasses in their communities.
By doing this jobs are created, glasses are provided to customers who lose or break them; plus prescriptions! It’s trickling down effect which does good work! Wonderful work by Warby Parker and Vision Spring!
So you want to see the frames I selected with my prescription? Well watch!
