Need a new pair of eyeglasses? If so, you’re in luck. JINS Eyewear of Japan is launching its third Bay Area location Mon., March 1 at the Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo. The JINS Hillsdale store will be located on the upper level Nordstrom Court and open daily for appointments or walk-ins from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The new store will offer adults and kids alike more than 430 styles of glasses to choose from, including Airframe lightweights, Alternate Fit frames for low-nose bridges and other options. Typically the turn-around time for prescription glasses is 30 minutes and prices start at $60, including premium quality lenses such as high index up to 1.74, aspheric, UV cut, anti-glare and hard coatings at no extra charge.
As part of its grand opening, JINS Hillsdale will be offering a special promotion: every customer purchasing glasses or sunglasses will get one free JINS SCREEN boxed blue light glasses (ready-made as non-prescription). The glasses, which block blue light and reduce digital eye strain, come in both adults and kids sizes (regular retail is $50 for adults and $30 for kids) and the offer is available until March 14, 2021.
Amid the pandemic, JINS Hillsdale will have COVID-19 safety measures in place; see the details here. Eye exams will not be available at this time.
