    I shop at Mark's Work Wearhouse for my scrubs.

    Good store on West Broadway (I think its in the Fairmount Bldg.), near VGH, right at street level. Usually have all the brands Deaville, Simon Chang, White Cross...

    The Broadway store is a good one, but pricey. There used to be a good one in New West, but I noticed the other day it closed.
    Army and Navy has nice uniforms, so does Walmart and Zellers.
    Marks Work Warehouse is good and they have a Scrub Club, where you get a free top or pants after you purchase a certain amount.

    If the one in New West was near the A&N out there it was an outlet store for Avida Uniforms.

    A&N used to get a lot of the "brand names" but our one lately has started splitting all the scrub sets up, even when you know that they are sold as sets by other stores. Can make it hard for those of us who want to buy the set, especially when its a different fabric and you have seen the set at Sears.

    Our Marks don't do the Scrub Club, but when they have a sale, its a good one..

    The Sears discount store by the Lougheed Skytrain station. Clearance scrubs. If you dont mind mixing it up. A few months ago, for $30, I got 9 tops and bottoms, 9!!!!! Less then $3 a piece. Well worth the price. Plus, it gives me a chance to mix and match.

    There's also Yanni's (?sp) in New Wesminster on Columbia Street. It's kind of hidden, but should have a sign pointing you in the right direction from the street area.
    I haven't been there in about 3 years though, so I don't know what their current selection is like.

    It was called Yandy's, but I noticed about a month ago it was closed. It sold Avida uniforms, our work is still gettig the catalogues, though, so I don;t know if it moved locations.
