Here is your opportunity to purchase a thriving retail uniform, clothing, accessories and shoe business, located in an excellent commercial district in downtown Victoria, BC. It specializes in quality uniform brands that are familiar with its regular clientele and known for style, colour, all-round wear-ability, durability and comfort. These products are sold to the medical, dental, veterinary and hospitality industries in the Victoria area, Vancouver Island and beyond.
The business is known for its excellent customer service and advice and has been doing so for over half a century via the current and 3 previous owners. It has supply agreements with multiple, post-secondary schools, providing uniforms, shoes and accessories to their students while they complete their studies. These agreements provide young customers that are beginning their careers and inspires them to become repeat customers in the future. It also has supply agreements with many medical and dental clinics throughout Vancouver Island.

It is also known throughout the movie and commercial production industries as the “go to” supply store for all types of uniforms and clothing for their film actors. As well the current owners have increased their clientele of local, national and international hotel chains. This provides ongoing income on a regular basis with major purchases.

PLEASE NOTE: During the Covid-19 crisis, the news media highlighted how thousands of businesses had to close or restrict operating procedures to meet government restrictions. The case for this store was the exact opposite. It operated 7 days/week throughout the crisis, providing an essential service to Dental and Health Care workers. This resulted in the store increasing its revenue and gaining many new customers/clients that have been so thankful that the store stayed open and the staff provided excellent service and advice!
The current owners have operated and expanded the business since purchasing it in 2003. They are now ready to retire and are willing to provide up to 3 months of training to any purchaser and their current store manager is willing to stay on in the same capacity.
