A Message from ISW – Uniform Provider

As we deal with the challenges of COVID-19, ISW Uniforms hopes that you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe during this difficult time.  We would like to assure you that our main priority is the health and safety of our customers and employees.  We are staying close to this evolving issue and are doing our utmost to ensure that our stores and workplaces remain safe for everyone.

Over the last several weeks our warehouse team has been busy receiving stock shipments to further prepare us for the upcoming back to school season.  During this time, we had the opportunity to support our community by donating several tons of fabric for masks for our front -line workers, and the vulnerable citizens in our communities

 Below are some of the actions we have taken to serve you better:

·  We currently have $15 million in inventory prepared for the 2020 Back-to-School season, and are receiving new shipments weekly.

·  Our in-house embroidery department is cresting at full speed to keep the stock levels topped up for each school.

·  Updates to the online services will include a feature to assist new families with sizing and first-time orders.

·  Live chat on the website will be implemented on June 1st to ensure our families are receiving instant answers while shopping online.

·  Fit sessions will be available to new families by appointment only starting June 1st 2020.

·  We are excited to offer virtual appointments to families to assist with ordering starting in June 2020.

·  Extended store hours to accommodate fitting appointments for new students

We have seen significant changes over the last few weeks, and as tough as these times may be, it’s beautiful to see how our communities have come together.  These are the times when we are most proud to be dressing the future.
