Lincoln Park is about to say goodbye to lamé leggings and hello to affordable eyewear. Warby Parker will be opening a temporary shop at 837 W. Armitage, currently an American Apparel with plans to close.

Warby Parker has plans for a more permanent home in Lincoln Park at 851 W. Armitage Ave, a 2,200-square-foot storefront. No dates have been specified yet, but this is an opening we're looking forward to. Currently Apartment Number 9 in Bucktown is the only Chicago location for Warby Parker.
