1949 Pearl Street, Boulder
Warby Parker was founded by four friends in 2010 with a goal of offering designer eyewear at low prices while paving the way for other socially conscious businesses. For every pair of glasses or sunglasses purchased, a pair is given to someone in need through the company's Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program. But Warby Parker also believes in looking good: The new brick-and-mortar shop in Boulder is decorated like a classic library with walnut shelving, colorful books and a reference desk.
