FORT PIERCE -- Parents searching for the perfect uniform for picky students can make shopping a lot easier with a one-stop shopping trip.
Treasure Coast School Uniforms and Apparel has durable and long-lasting attire for nearly every school in the county.
"We carry almost everything a student needs," said Trevor Banks, manager. "The only thing that's not here are school supplies, but we do have the book bags for them to go in."
The store is full of every color polo shirt, khaki and blue shorts, skorts, and skirts, capris, plaid tunics and skirts, belts, socks, ties, bowties and school embroidered clothing.
"We will put school embroidery on any item that is bought here. We also will put it on something that is brought in. We cover most of the schools in the county including elementary, middle, K-8, high schools and private schools," Mr. Banks said.
There is a two-to-three day turnaround on items that have to be embroidered or altered.
"We offer alterations on clothing whether it's purchased here or brought in," Mr. Banks said. "We do the measurements here and then send it to our tailor who gets it back to us quickly."
Area sports teams or organizations looking for T-shirts with logos and designs can also bring their ideas to the shop. Mr. Banks and his co-workers can look up a design, help create a unique look and then produce the final product.
The uniform shop carries sizes from youth 2-X to adult 3-X.
"We try to have something for everyone," Mr. Banks said. "If we don't carry the size or it's not in stock, we will order it. There's usually a short turnaround time, but we can get it here for the customer."
Treasure Coast School Uniforms and Apparel is located at 310 Indian Hill Drive in Fort Pierce. They are open Monday- Friday, from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m.
