JINS Eyewear to Open Doors to Westfield’s Santa Anita Shopping Mall in September 2016

SAN FRANCISCO, October 9

Japanese eyewear brand, JINS, announced today plans to expand to Westfield’s Santa Anita Shopping Mall in Los Angeles in September 2016. This will be JINS’ second U.S. location. The first U.S. flagship store opened in April 2015 in San Francisco’s Union Square.

First Shopping Mall Location

Santa Anita marks JINS’ first shopping mall location in the U.S., but more store openings are expected on the West Coast in 2016. The store will provide 2,100 square feet of eyewear retail space and will house 720 styles of JINS exclusive eyewear.

JINS glasses have two types of nose pads, one which positions the glasses higher and one which positions the glasses lower on the face so frames will fit perfectly. Regardless of the location, JINS customers can receive their glasses in 30 minutes, and thanks to the affordable pricing system, they can enjoy multiple pairs of glasses for multiple occasions.

JINS Innovation

JINS extends its commitment to innovation with JINS SCREEN glasses that block 25% of blue light. These glasses come in two varieties: boxed, which comes in two styles with no prescription and bespoke, which allows customers to add JINS SCREEN to any one of the frames with or without a prescription. JINS SCREEN eases the digital eye strain caused by the prolonged use of devices, including computer screens and smartphones.

“One of the cornerstones of JINS has always been innovation,” said Ryosuke Kimura, Corporate Planning Manager at JINS Eyewear US, Inc. “We’re so excited to be able to bring this spirit to SoCal with our fast, affordable prescription glasses and functional eyewear.”

The company is committed to providing personalized service with exceptional speed and convenience to make the eyeglass purchasing experience enjoyable. JINS continues to pioneer the creation of functional eyeglasses (like JINS SCREEN), which see beyond simple vision correction. As part of its vision to enrich lives, JINS has explored new and exciting uses for eyeglasses as a means to improve safety, wellness, and health.
