BOSTON—As part of a year-long celebration of its 50th anniversary, Randolph has opened its first-ever retail location as a pop-up shop in The Current in Boston Seaport alongside Seaport Common. The Current is a retail pop-up that brings an ever-evolving lineup of new brands to Boston Seaport, allowing their stories to be brought-to-life through a spin on a traditional retail storefront. The Randolph pop-up, which opened on May 11, commemorates the brand’s 50 years of family-owned American craftsmanship and allows shoppers to experience the quality and feel of Randolph frames firsthand.

Randolph’s retail pop-up will remain open through Sept. 2, 2023. It showcases Randolph’s collection of frames that have outfitted U.S. Air Force Fighter Pilots, A-list celebrities and consumers alike, with space for its collaborations with Todd Snyder, Alpha Industries and more. The brand is also releasing a series of limited-edition frames to celebrate its 50th anniversary, as reported in VMAIL LaunchPad.

Randolph president and CEO Peter Waszkiewicz said, “My father and his partner Stanley emigrated from Poland to the U.S. and, as engineers and toolmakers, had the dream of opening their own factory. With jewelry plated frames and innovative lens technology, Randolph is unparalleled in handcrafting premium quality, iconic eyewear. From securing the U.S. Military contract to engineering frames for fans around the world, it has been a privilege to carry on their dream and the company values.”
