North Carolina’s first Warby Parker store opens March 4 in South End.
The designer eyeglass retailer is in the 1,600 square-foot space previously occupied by Savory Spice at Atherton Mill.
Warby Parker advisers assist with style and fit consultation, the retailer said in a statement this week. Opticians are also available in the store to make adjustments. Prescription glasses are shipped within days, and non-prescription eyewear, including sunglasses, are available for immediate purchase, Warby Parker said.
To celebrate the opening, the store will be selling for a limited time a pair of turquoise “Charlotte-exclusive” sunglasses with tortoise shell rims. Warby Parker will also have a location-specific Snapchat filter throughout the opening weekend.
