Should you spot a yellow school bus parked around town the next several days, be sure to peak inside as you could very well be looking at Warby Parker’s latest showroom experience.
That’s right, the hip, affordable, vintage-inspired eyewear brand—which was launched back in 2010 by four students at UPenn’s Wharton School of Business—is currently touring this great nation, hitting nine cities over the next six months in none other than a pimped out cheese bus.
The interior of the bus has been entirely revamped and decked out to look like a distinguished professor’s library, complete with leather sofas, vintage books, maps and a chalkboard in addition to, of course, their full line of eyeglasses and sunglasses.
The Warby Parker Class Trip will officially be making it’s way into Philly tomorrow, parking at several different locations around town through Nov. 4.
Open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, shoppers are welcomed to stop by and try on their cool frames with the assistance of the onsite stylist or maybe just plop down on their comfy couches and enjoy the interesting collection of reading material. Locals can also check out a selection of Warby Parker specs anytime at Art in The Age.
