Buy Glass is one of the best places to buy new glasses online, according to a new report from the National Glass Association.
The glass makers have been struggling to make a living for years as the Internet has driven a shift in consumer behavior away from traditional retail.
But this week, Glass announced that it will open a new retail store in Seattle, Washington.
“Our goal is to create the best shopping experience possible for our customers and our associates,” the company said in a statement, according the Seattle Times.
“Glass is a new industry and we’re excited to expand our presence to a global community of people and businesses interested in our products and services.”
In 2018, Glass posted $14.7 million in revenue, making it the fourth-largest online-only glasses maker in the world.
That’s the same year it also made its first in-person sales, but the company didn’t disclose the number of sales at its Seattle location.
The company said it plans to continue expanding its Seattle shop, which will open in late 2019.
The new store will include a large glass making oven that Glass said it is developing for the Seattle market.
The oven will use glass-making processes that are environmentally friendly, Glass said.
Glass plans to offer a range of eyewear for purchase, including “new and gently used glasses” as well as new “facial” and “face-framing” products.
It said it will offer more glasses for sale in 2018 than it had in 2019, according a spokesperson.
Glass said it has over 2,300 employees worldwide, and employs more than 10,000 people in the U.S. and the U
