Kane Realty Corporation is excited to announce that Warby Parker, a sunglasses and eyewear store, will be opening in the Main District at North Hills. Located in the Commons next to Chick-fil-A, the store plans to open its doors this Saturday, September 29th.
We are thrilled to have Warby Parker open in North Hills. Warby Parker makes high quality products and offers a superb customer experience. The North Hills location will be their first store in Raleigh and we are certain they will do excellent in this market.
Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. It all began when four friends wondered why buying glasses was so expensive and oftentimes tedious. They set out to make the whole thing easy, affordable, and way more fun. By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear starting at $95—a fraction of the going price.
“A lot of innovation, in both the sciences and the arts, is coming out of Raleigh,” says co-founder and co-CEO Neil Blumenthal. “We have so much respect for the area’s world-class research facilities, universities, museums, and performing art centers. We’re excited to have a second home here, where we know we’ll be in great company.”
To commemorate the store opening, Warby Parker has created a limited-edition pair of sunglasses made exclusively for the North Hills location. The store will open Saturday morning at 11:00am.
