Zenni Optical Hits the Road with U.S. College Tour

NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Thanks to top online eyewear brand Zenni Optical, college students in the western United States will experience how easy and affordable it is to accessorize with eyeglasses and sunglasses. Zenni today announced “Zenni Road Trip,” a college tour that will travel between campuses offering students free vision tests to help them kick off the school year seeing clearly. Keeping things playful and fun, Zenni will also show students how their personal style can be reflected through eyewear of all shapes, styles and colors.

Zenni has customized an RV and loaded it up with hundreds of pairs of eyeglasses and sunglasses chosen by Los Angeles-based celebrity fashion stylist Lindsay Albanese. Students are invited to stop by and try on as many frames as they wish, receive a free vision evaluation, meet surprise guests, and have a chance to win a ton of cool prizes. Zenni Road Trip will include stops in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas and Washington state from September to October 2016.

“Price and insurance constraints are often barriers for people when it comes to having the prescription eyeglasses they want to express their personal style every day,” said Mark Brutten, director of brand marketing at Zenni Optical. “With Zenni Road Trip, we’re giving people permission to alternate eyewear styles the same way they do with other items in their wardrobe. This multi-city tour directly connects us with college students to show them that affordable, premium prescription eyewear exists for under $50.”

Along the tour route, students will be able to interact with a Zenni brand ambassador who is heading out in search of inspiration for future eyewear designs. Zenni’s social channels will have stories of these roadside adventures, clues on how to win free stuff, and invitations to followers for informal meetups during the tour.

Zenni Road Trip will include stops at the following locations:

September 19, Auraria Campus, Metropolitan State University, Denver September 20, University of Colorado, Boulder September 23, Arizona State, Tempe September 28, University of California, Los Angeles October 4, City College of San Francisco October 5-6, San Francisco State University October 10-11, University of Oregon, Eugene October 13, Gonzaga University October 18-19, Texas Tech University October 24, Texas A&M University
