School Uniform Management

About

It’s a popular belief that school uniforms make life easy. For parents, this is probably true. But if you’re in charge of organising uniforms for your school, ‘easy’ is not a word that springs to mind.

Hopefully we can change that.

Our company, NZ Uniforms, makes school uniforms. We have the largest range of ex stock school uniform product in New Zealand.

But what we really make, we believe, is your life easy

We do this in many ways. We can retail direct to parents or we can wholesale to the school uniform shop. We hold and fund stock whether it’s for retail or wholesale. We give each school its own webshop so that parents can order online. We have our own shops, 14 stores nationwide open 6 days – our stores with our name on them – where we stock, fit and sell the uniforms. We accept Zip, WINZ and all major credit cards. We also have our own ‘Uniform Club’ to help parents save towards their purchase. And in towns where we don’t have a shop, we provide a free set of size samples to each school so that parents view them and then buy online.

Those are the mechanics but uniforms, as you know, are a lot more than a mechanical process. They’re matters of pride, for the school and the children who wear them.

So we make sure your uniforms are right. We have three fashion designer who help with concepts and tweaks to make sure you get the uniform you want. We can provide for the out-of-ordinary sizings and we have an easy return policy for size exchanges.

And we guarantee our product and delivery times.

There’s a lot more we could say but it’s probably easier said in person.

So if you think we can help you – and we trust that we can – please feel free to give us a phone call.

We’d be delighted to help.
