304 North Euclid according to their website
Signs been up for a little bit. Took over the Kit&Ace spot.
I️ Love Warby Parker! This is a great win for the area.

I agree. Though I wish it would have gone Downtown. That would be a huge retail win.
^ I agree... I just imagine an alternate universe where shops like this line WashAve and we have a really vibrant downtown full of residents and workers and shoppers and visitors.

Everything is so spread out that don't really have a truly walkable, dense live/work/play node in the city.

Or even just keep Kit & Ace, put WP a couple blocks north where there are a couple of newly vacant spots.

They've closed all of their U.S. stores.

It's almost as if Downtown is fighting CWE, and the city as a whole is fighting the county for retail.

Frustrating to say the least.
^ exactly... with everything spread out neither the downtown or Clayton CBDs has a decent, walkable mix of retail, residential and employment. And The Foundry, while nice, will also make it more of a challenge for any one place to truly gain traction.

Now if the CWE Metrolink station were underground with entrance at say Euclid and Laclede that would be a lot better but as it stands there's no really efficient public transit b/w the heart of CWE and downtown to patch up these gaps along the central corridor a bit.
Big win for the urban retail landscape, but I have a hunch that the Eye Bar and Eye Roc would beg to differ. After checking out all the WP locations throughout the country, it appears that St. Louis is a little late to the party-- with exception of Cleveland and Cincinnati, there's a Warby Parker retail store in just about every major city in the country.

You're correct. However, this is an excellent location. I think their arrival will really help attract more upscale retailers to the CWE.
