Today is the last day Apartment Number 9 in Bucktown will be selling Warby Parker eyewear. The in-store event launched March 5th to much acclaim and has run with momentum through the end of today. The shop-in-shop was originally a shorter term project but Chicagoans loved the Warby Parker in Apartment Number 9 experience so much the run was extended.
You've still got a little time if you want to head over to Bucktown if you want to see the remaining Warby styles in person, but later today they're being carefully packed up and shipped back to New York. Apartment Number 9 offers a special promotional code at the shop-in-shop for any one pair of Warby frames.
All sentimental, we dug through the archives and gathered a gallery of photos of people who already love the brand and a few newbies who fell in love with the brand during Warby's Midwest vacation.
If you missed this stellar partnership, you can look forward to Apartment Number 9's next one with Simon Miller Jeans around June 11th.
