In need of some funky specs?
Then look for the Warby Parker schoolbus parked in your hood. The locally born eye wear company is in the midst of The Warby Parker Class Trip and we are the third stop on the 9-city tour. It started October 10 in New York and will wrap up in Los Angeles in February.
Think of it as a yellow cheese bus turned traveling pop-up shop.
The inside of the school bus is designed to look like a professor's library, so it's complete with leather sofas, wood paneling and vintage books. The bus is staffed with a sales team and an optician.
Warby Parker was founded by University of Pennsylvania Wharton students: Neil Blumenthal, Dave Gilboa, Jeffrey Raider and Andrew Hunt. The men were motivated by fashion and philanthropy - for each pair of eyeglasses sold, Warby gives a pair to someone in need.
