Eyeglass company takes class trip in Nashville

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A unique school bus has been parked around Nashville for the past several days.

It's from the eyeglass company Warby Parker. They're touring the country on what's being called the Warby Parker Class Trip.

The company primarily exists online.

It sends out products to customers to try at home for free and then they decide which frames they like best.

Warby Parker is using the cross-country tour to bring its showroom experience to various cities.

The founders started the company on a belief that most people can appreciate: quality eyeglasses don't need to cost a fortune.

When you buy a pair, you help someone else.

"We sell prescription eyeglasses online (www.warbyparker.com) for $95, including prescription lenses," said Phineas Ellis with Warby Parker. "We also have a 'Buy a Pair, Give a Pair' program. So for every pair you buy, we distribute a pair to a person in need."

The Warby Parker bus will be in Nashville through Sunday. It's parked in The Gulch area at 11th Avenue South and Pine Street. It is manned between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
