Warby Parker — the online eyewear startup — is opening a Pittsburgh store this year, the company confirmed to The Incline Friday.

No other details about the store or its location were available.

The Warby Parker website currently lists four openings for Pittsburgh under the retail stores section of its job openings — a part-time sales advisor, a full-time optician, as well as two more senior roles called “Keyholder Optician” and “Keyholder Advisor.”

In January, Warby Parker CEO Neil Blumenthal said the eyewear startup planned to open at least 25 brick-and-mortar stores this year, per the Wall Street Journal. Currently, the eyewear company’s website lists 55 store locations in the U.S., including two in Philadelphia.

Warby Parker was launched in 2010 by students at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The company sells prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, and allows buyers to pick out frames online, then try them on at home before selecting a pair. The company also donates funds for eye exams and low-cost glasses in developing countries.
