Uniforms in Vancouver?

  1. I'm wondering where you all buy your uniforms.

    I love the cut and weight of Deauville scrub sets (11344) and have been buying them at Images near VGH and the Sears at Metrotown (when they're on sale ) But a salesperson at Sears said they wouldn't be selling medical uniforms there anymore.

    Should I try catalogues, different stores, or... make my mom laugh until she cries and attempt to sew my own from a pattern?

    Marks Work Wearhouse has just begun selling nursing uniforms, Do you have those in BC?

    There's a shop in the 700 block of Broadway (740 maybe?) and they're awesome. Have shoes too! Or is that Images?

    There is a great company called AVIDA, that sell uniforms & medical supplies......i believe that they have a website as well (they are based out of Toronto).....type the name in the search engine.

    Good Luck!

    Hey Joeknee, try Yandy's on Columbia in New West. Take the Skytrain to Columbia Street Station. cross the street to the Army Navy side and head west (2-3 blocks) until you get to a bridal shop/hallway strip mall, with a sign which says "Hagen's Travel". Yandy's is about the 3rd shop in the hallway. I buy all my scrubs there (as do all the male nurses that I work with), and you can also order from their catalogues. Army Navy also carries unisex scrubs, basement floor and reasonable.

    I note that someone in an earlier reply mentioned Marks Workwearhouse. I just got their catalogue the other day. Their website is www.marks.com/healthwear. They're advertising "Denver Hays Scrubs Easy care 65% poly/35$% cotton. Sizes XS-XL. tops or pants $14.99 each". Says "sale ends" this coming Saturday (22nd). There's a store on E. Hastings and another on West 4 Ave & Cypress.

    Hope this helps. Katherine

    Only problem with the denver hays scrubs is they attract pet hair like magnet (wearing same + orange fur right now).

    Sears stores want to stop selling medical uniforms, but they have quite a few specialty catalogues , and one of those is their uniforms catalogue.

    Avida has great uniforms and are verrry nice on returns, sending you a return bag and paying return postage.

    Hi, I buy at Yandy's. The only thing that sucks is that you have the hem the pants yourself (yecch - I HATE sewing). Also Army and Navy has nice, cheap scrubs (sometimes Deauville's for 20 bucks), also try Sears Clearance Outlets...

    Joeknee, I too like the Deauville scrubs. I was at Marks Wearhouse today and they are carrying them (at least in Victoria).

    I'm in Kelowna, BC and love The Uniform Shop on Cooper Rd. My absolute favourite scrubs are Silky Soft scrubs by http://www.professionaluniform.com/ . I love the Body Flex style!! I can get a set for $39.95 at The Uniform Shop and I don't even have to get the pants hemmed. (I'm 5'3" and ususally have to pay another $10-$15 to get pants hemmed.)
