Manhattan-based eyewear company Warby Parker will open its third Brooklyn location on Jan. 25.
The new Park Slope outpost, located at 208 Flatbush Ave. between Dean and Bergen streets, follows the opening of a Williamsburg location in 2019 and a Boerum Hill storefront marked the company’s first venture into the borough in 2016.
“Brooklyn is home to so many designers, entrepreneurs, and artists cultivating an incredibly supportive community,” says co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa. “Naturally, we find ourselves drawn to this energetic borough that’s only a train ride away from our headquarters.”
The new brick-and-mortar location gives customers the chance to try on eye and sunglasses frames, and patrons can arrange in-store exams and contact lens fittings, as well as eyeglass repair and adjustments.
The price of frames hovers around $95 — albeit, with some higher value collections — which if paired with prescription lenses can be ordered in-store and mailed to your home.
The brand will launch its newest spring collections — Spring 2020 and Spring Sun —at the Flatbush Avenue location as the company’s first store opening of 2020.
The store’s two entrances — with its second facade on Bergen Avenue — are both decked out in sky blue and covered with cartoon images painted by Brooklyn artist Saskia Keultjes, who will also be in attendance at the store’s grand opening.
The illustrator will provide custom caricatures for customers to take home from noon to 2 pm for the store’s grand opening celebration on Saturday, where he’ll be joined by free pastries from Doughnut Plant and the store’s next-door neighbor Ovenly.
