Designer at a Discount
Since Luxottica monopolized the eyewear industry with its purchases of nearly every well-known brand from Chanel to Versace, buying a pair of designer sunglasses has become akin to highway robbery. In 1999, you could buy a pair of Ray-Bans at a gas station for $19. Today, a pair costs $160 online. Unless you shop at Costco. Members of the discount wholesaler can buy an array of big-name designer sunglasses (and Kirkland brand sunnies!) for a fraction of what you’d pay elsewhere. Alexander McQueen, Montblanc, Saint Laurent, Ray Ban, Maui Jim … the list goes on. Here are some of the most popular discount designer shades that Costco offers. If you don’t see anything you like below, check out Costco.com to see its entire sunglasses selection.
