Tired of boring eyewear? Warby Parker, the hip, affordable, vintage-inspired eyewear brand launched in 2012 by four Penn students, is taking a “class trip” and coming right to you.
Now through November 4, look for this cool line of glasses in an equally cool yellow school bus, currently touring the country and hitting nine cities in six months.
The tricked-out bus has been decked out to look like a professor’s library, and will be parked in various locations throughout town displaying Warby Parker’s complete line of eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Visit this cool and charitable eyewear company (for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need) in its mobile showroom from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. at the following locations:
• October 26: Outside The Shops at Liberty Place on Market Street between 16th and 17th Sts.
• October 27-28: 18th Street between Walnut and Moravian Streets
• October 29-November 2: Arch Street between N. 2nd and N. 3rd Streets
• November 3-4: 18th Street between Walnut and Moravian Street
Can’t catch the school bus on time? You can always check out Warby Parker specs at Art in The Age at your convenience.
