Out in Downtown Disney, the Sunglass Icon is under a heavy reconstruction. The building has been gutted and will have some very unique features when it reopens this summer
From the Disney Parks Blog:
I am so excited to announce another terrific improvement coming soon to the Downtown Disney District at theDisneyland Resort: a brand-new, fully remodeled Sunglass Icon store will open just in time for summer 2012!
As you approach the location, you will immediately be awed by the strong black architectural storefront portal that is offset by the soft glow of color-changing lights. The newly constructed flagship store will feature a focal wall made of two layers of patterned glass and a back layer with a two-way mirror to allow for visibility and dynamic reflections. The use of color-changing LED lights above the millwork and LED cubes hanging from the ceiling will add just the right touch of whimsy.
A new interactive feature will be the “Social Sun” screen which allows for a fun, social experience. Imagine trying on a new style of sunglasses, taking a picture and immediately emailing it to a friend or posting it to Facebook so friends and family can give feedback on your sunglass selection!
Sunglass Icon will open in June 2012. We look forward to this newly remodeled location and the 1,100 pairs of their top sunglass brands!
