Uniform Allowance + Company Store

Posted in Outfitted, Work on Aug 10, 2020

The City Apparel team understands that innovation is a key to success when developing uniform allowance programs. City Apparel has been in this industry for years, a long time…. allowing our team to shape and transform programs tailored to our client’s needs. City Apparel has the ability to build and execute uniform programs from scratch. From large to small companies, and everything in between, uniform allowance programs can eliminate stress and also time spent executing a program of this size. To further this value, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic (UGH!), a company store with a uniform allowance program is more crucial than ever. Short story short, your employees order their uniforms online and within 2 weeks they are delivered directly to their home, or your office, individually bagged and ready to go for distribution. It’s that easy!

Stock, customized or completely custom designed uniforms

As a distributor, our product line is very extensive because the world is our oyster. Our goal is not to put our customers into products that are sitting on our shelves (or anyone else’s’ for that matter); but products that are the right fit for our customer’s specific needs. Some of our customers require totally custom apparel. Many times, we alter products that are considered “stock” by adding trims, stripes, decoration and other options to help our customers achieve the 'look' they want while avoiding the additional time, cost and commitment of custom designed & manufactured apparel program.

Logo embroidery & customizing services

We offer an extensive variety of options for customizing your garments including logo embroidery, laser, debossing, custom trims, stripes, and much more to create a unique look. This is a big deal. Aren’t you tired of seeing the same old decoration (embroidery) in the same old location (left chest) and get the same old results? We call that the definition of insanity. We keep it real, by bringing hip, affordable and creative solutions to our customers’ identity programs.

Management Reporting

(Warning, this may be a bit boring, so hang on)

We offer customizable reporting that provides order and cost detail at virtually any level. Need reports showing order history sorted by employee, SKU, or by facility? We love reports! We retain all order information in our system and can meet virtually any reporting request.


(Warning, this may be a bit boring too but we’re almost done)

For many larger accounts with multiple locations, difficulties surrounding purchasing and distributing products to employees can be time consuming, costly and just downright a pain in the butt. But wait! This type of program is our sweet spot. We can sort, bag and label orders by employee and drop ship to multiple locations or individuals to help make distribution a snap. We ship from several warehouses located throughout the U.S.A. to help get our customers’ products to them on time and packaged/ identified for easy distribution to the right end user, whether that be an employee or customer.
