Looking ahead to the next steps for the industry, “The future of our business is interesting as we drive significant innovation in footwear and apparel,” said Lyn.
“Environmental concerns are now at the forefront of many of our manufacturers. With the increasing use of recycled plastics in clothing and technological advances in all footwear applications, the future is indeed exciting.”
Regarding why supporting local businesses is good, “we advise that when choosing your uniforms, please consider your local suppliers.
“We hire in your community. We support your community.”
Furthermore, “we are specialists in our field and can help you choose the best product for your needs.” Remember the old adage: price is forgotten long after quality is remembered.
“We strive to give our customers our best deal to ensure their uniforms last and fit. We have the experience and knowledge of our industry at no cost to you.”
