Workin’ Gear Schools is a local family owned business serving the parents and school children of Canberra. We can provide for all of your school uniform needs. We can also supply you with sport and corporate uniforms. Our friendly and courteous staff will assist you in every way possible to ensure that your shopping experience is pleasant and satisfying. We are located on Luke Street, Holt, near the Kippax Fair Shopping Centre.
The Uniform Shop opened for business in September 2008. We were then located in Onslow Street, Latham. These were the premises formerly used by Braggs of Latham. After selling school uniforms for over twenty years, the owners of Braggs of Latham decided to retire and travel overseas. We purchased their stock and opened under our own name. In July 2009, The Uniform Shop moved to our new premises on Luke Street, Holt, near the Kippax Fair Shopping Centre. In August of 2017 the shop was re-branded to Workin’ Gear Schools reflecting our sister store Workin’ Gear in Fyshwick. This allowed us to introduce a range of uniforms and work clothing for the big kids as well as the small.
In June 2019, Workin’ Gear Schools will be relocating to our sister store Workin’ Gear, at their Fyshwick Superstore, 51 Kembla St. The move will see a new approach to School Uniform retailing, with a “showroom” approach combined with a modern checkout experience. In addition to offering a more central location, Workin’ Gear Schools will be expanding their online store to offer real time stock levels, same day delivery and an even larger range of uniforms.
We will also introduce a series of “pop up” stores across our current schools, including a Belconnen region back to school pop up during the new school year period.
We will continue to be a local family owned and family run business, with the same friendly personalised service. Our range of uniforms will continue to be high quality, locally sourced and ethically manufactured. Payment options instore and online will be expanded to include Zip Pay, in addition to Afterpay, Paypal and regular payment methods.
We look forward to you joining us on this exciting new approach to retailing, and experiencing the enhanced convenience and customer focus we hope to create.
