Blenders Eyewear Launches New Collection of Goggles and Winter Sport Accessories
Blenders Eyewear unveiled its 2021 SNOW line, expanding on its collection of signature fresh looks and bold styles made to dominate the mountains this winter. The e-commerce company is introducing an all-new goggle collection as well as its first line of cold-weather accessories and winter safety gear – including helmets, beanies, balaclavas, and neck gaiters. The launch features a total of 26 pairs of goggles with a variety of bold color-ways to match any gear setup. Two styles were designed exclusively with Blenders athletes, including two-time Olympic snowboarder, Jessika Jenson and pro snowboarder Cam FitzPatrick.
"Whether you're shredding the bunny slopes or the black diamonds, Blenders now has you covered for all your deepest winter desires," says Blenders Founder and CEO Chase Fisher. "Our team of designers and professional outdoor athletes went all out this year on designing the coolest gear that will have you looking good and performing at your peak. These new attention-grabbing styles are affordable and dependable – guaranteeing a great day on the mountain in any condition."
The retailer will pay $200 to its more than 350,000 employees who work at stores, distribution centers and contact centers, according to a post on its corporate website. It will pay the bonuses by early November.
Grocers and big-box retailers, including Walmart, Amazon and Kroger, temporarily increased pay and gave bonuses to hourly workers early in the pandemic. The “hero pay” was meant to recognize workers who helped the company replenish shelves during weeks of stockpiling and put their own health at risk.
