SAN FRANCISCO, March 24

Japanese eyewear brand, JINS, announced today its fourth store opening in Westfield Fashion Square Mall in Los Angeles in Fall 2016. This is followed by JINS’ recent announcement to open in Westfield Valley Fair and Santa Anita Malls this summer.

The Fashion Square store will provide 1,800 square feet of retail space and have over 700 styles of exclusive eyewear. Unlike the open entrance of the Santa Anita and Valley Fair stores, the Fashion Square store will have glass entrance doors. JINS selected the natural beauty of wood for the Fashion Square store facade that is warm and welcoming for customers.

Like all the other JINS stores, customers can receive their glasses in 30 minutes via the lens-edging machine in the Workshop. Customers will also be able to receive eye exams in 15 minutes, which will be provided by a third party. They will offer $40 refractions and $60 comprehensive exams.

Mario Arai, President of JINS Eyewear US Inc, said, “We’re so excited to bring innovation and fast, affordable prescription glasses to Los Angeles with our 4th store opening.”
