“We’re at the forefront of physical retail, so we see demands from just about everybody, and it’s really exciting to be working with all of these new concepts,” Zachary Beloff, national director of business development for Simon Property Group, the owner of King of Prussia, one of the largest malls in the U.S., told The Inquirer in August. “It’s a great way to excite the customer and give them what they want.”
The Warby Parker store will be on the upper level of the Plaza across from Lord & Taylor, and will be open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
On Saturday’s opening day, customers will be able to eat mini treats from Federal Donuts and there will also be free T-shirts, custom-designed by artist Kevin Lyons in both the King of Prussia mall and Walnut Street locations for the weekend, while supplies last, the company said.
The new store will have the company’s full selection of glasses and kids’ frames, eye exams, and a prescription check. Prescription eyewear prices start at $95.
For every pair of glasses purchased, Warby Parker advertises that “a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need.” The company said more than five million pairs have been distributed through this “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program.
