SUNSTRUCK was started in New York City on the heals of the food truck revolution. We took a 21’ long bread truck and turned it into a fully operation sunglasses store on wheels. Purchased from a recently retired pet supply distributor named Salvatore, our truck is affectionately named "Silver Sal" .
"Silver Sal" was delivered to the steps of Brooklyn's most respected production house, Square Design. Based on the design of famed retail designer Blake Dain, the crew at Square Design created one of the most unique retail spaces around.
The entire interior of Sunstruck is completely built from scratch. From the custom molded nose pieces to the back lit display window boxes. From the moment you step inside the truck you are surrounded by sunglasses from every angle and a space fully back-lit in the company's logo colors, yellow, orange and red. It is almost as if you have stepped into a beautiful sunrise surrounded by one of the most unique retail spaces around. The truck is finished with a custom stain, led lights and real wood flooring.
The truck was also designed to operate as Eco-friendly as possible. During operation, the truck can run on a series of four batteries that re-charge while being driven or plugged in overnight. The batteries can produce enough electricity to keep the truck's energy efficient lighting and it's booming stereo going all day!
A portion of all purchases made at Sunstruck sunglasses have always and continue to go to charity. Over the years, Sunstruck has worked with a wide spectrum of charities that range from environmentally focused causes to health crisis charities. This truck was founded on the principles of spreading good things wherever it travels.
Sunstruck always garner plenty of attention from event goers and press.
As the first sunglasses truck on wheels we havebeen featured in
Timeout, the NY Daily New, NY Times in addition to several popular
fashion blogs. We are now excited to become part of the community here
in our new home in South Florida!
