Warby Parker is coming to Toronto, Canada. The first Warby Parker Canadian store opens at 684 Queen Street West on Saturday, August 6th. No doubt I love online shopping! Pretty boxes mailed directly to my home and I barely even need to lift a finger! Free from crowds and disappointments that they don’t carry my size.
Shopping for glasses seems a little difference however. It’s always hard to know the fit (size and style) of a pair of eyeglasses until it rests comfortably on your face. Warby Parker promises beautiful designed optical eyewear online without the overhead costs of middleman.
I am lucky for an Asian woman to have a higher nose-bridge and do not normally struggle with plastic frames sliding off.
