Scott Lachut: Warby Parker’s Flagship Foray Into Physical Retail

Much has been written about how Warby Parker has reinvented the business of selling eyeglasses online from its reasonable price point ($95US) for a pair of fashion forward frames and buy one, give one model to its virtual and home try-on programs that give shoppers the confidence to pick the perfect style. Given the young company’s success with its e-commerce focus, it was only natural that it began experimenting with physical store sales. Early iterations included an in-office showroom, retail partnerships, themed pop-ups and even a school-bus turned mobile showroom that saw Warby Parker refine its customer service, aesthetics, storytelling and product curation.
