Hey, Charlotte

We’ve been eyeing Charlotte for a long, long time, so consider us thrilled to have finally found a dreamy spot for a Warby Parker store at Atherton Mill. As of last week, we’re officially open, and we couldn’t love our new space any more.

We’ve been eyeing Charlotte for a long, long time, so consider us thrilled to have finally found a dreamy spot for a Warby Parker store at Atherton Mill. As of last week, we’re officially open, and we couldn’t love our new space any more.

The design of the store preserves the building’s industrial feel, from the concrete flooring to the red brick front wall and wooden ceiling. We’ve added marble table tops, colorful books, library-like shelving, and (of course) glasses and sunglasses.

Behind our Reference Desk, you’ll find a bright original mural by Cyprus-based illustrator Anna Kövecses (whom you may remember from our Summer Sound Sessions last year!). We’re so excited to have her energy in our store.

To celebrate our new spot, we’re offering a limited-edition pair of Charlotte-exclusive sunglasses: Ormsby in Whiskey Tortoise with Flash Mirrored Pacific Blue lenses. The midcentury-flavored frame is only available with these eye-popping lenses at Atherton Mill—so if you’re in town, come get a look before it’s gone!

STORE DETAILS
2000 South Boulevard
Charlotte, NC 28203

Hours:
Tuesday–Saturday, 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.

To Read: What Berry Do You Pick?

It’s amazing they let these grow on trees. Berries, that is, not just books. Great reads, right for the pickin’. They’re nature’s brain candy, don’t you know?

To Read: What’s the Worst Candy?

Oh, you shouldn’t have. No, you really shouldn’t have. With so many temptations in the world, how do people stomach these unearthly “delights?” Take solace in some good books, to kill off the aftertaste of bad candy.
