Speaking of Jack Kerouac, I got some new glasses. I bought them from Warby Parker, a young online company, that sells great looking, good quality eyewear for under $100.
What could be better than that? Well, maybe this, when you purchase a pair of glasses from Warby Parker, they donate another pair to someone in need.
I liked the concept of this company so much that I bought two pairs.
In fact, I liked everything about them, from the cool packaging, to the vintage inspired styles, to the easy & fun shopping process.
They will send up to 5 pairs of glasses to try on in the privacy of your own home, for up to 5 days, for free. And they include a pre-paid return shipping label to send them back, with no obligation to buy. They have showrooms in some cities, so I was able to do both, & found the whole process a lot of fun.
But what could all of this have to do with Jack Kerouac you might ask? Scroll to the bottom of this link for the answer. If I wasn't already totally smitten, this little tidbit sealed the deal!
It is my hope, that Warby Parker can be an example, for how all businesses will operate in the future.
