Peninsula Scrub Shoppe, uniforms with a stylish flare

Posted: Friday, November 27, 2009

For health care providers, chefs, and those in need of tuxedo shirts or specialty uniforms, the Kenai Peninsula now has its own Peninsula Scrub Shoppe, thanks to entrepreneur Randi Sass and her partner. Located in the JoAnn Fabrics strip mall on the Spur Highway in Soldotna, the Peninsula Scrub Shoppe is bringing affordable quality and style closer to home. "We feel it's something that has been needed here for a long time. Before we opened, the folks who worked at the hospital, home health care providers, dental offices, and in area veterinarian clinics, had to either order from a catalog, online, or drive to Anchorage to find the selection that we have here," said Sass. "My fiance got the idea from a woman a few years ago who was leaving the state, and commented that if she were going to stay what she would do is open up a scrub shop. So we toyed with the idea for a couple of years, and launched our Scrub Shoppe for the Peninsula this fall. It's a great market with all the changes, styles and variety of scrubs now available. I mean, there use to be just white, pale blue and green and that was it, but now look at the fun options! And a lot of folks are buying scrubs for comfortable lounge wear, or actually some of these scrubs now are so nice you can wear them out to dinner," said Randy.

The Peninsula Scrub Shoppe also offers accessories, unique fragrances, and some bling to go along with the latest in scrubs according to Sass. "We have a great selection of gifts for your friends in the health care industry, and some of jewelry is custom matched to the scrubs we carry. We also have slip-resistant shoes designed for hospitals and doctors offices, which are actually very popular with those not in the health care industry as well, because of their extreme comfort," she said. Another featue at the Peninsula Scrub Shoppe is that you can get your scrubs or chef coats custom monogrammed with their 16 needle embroidery machine. "We can do a variety of designs, names, or custom logos at very reasonable prices that we can embroidery onto any of our merchandise," added Randy.

Beginning Saturday, November 28th, the Peninsula Scrub Shoppe will have their first Holiday Blowout Sale with deep discounts on much of their inventory. "We have got to get ready for Christmas, so we can bring you the latest styles and colors for the New Year. We are practically giving it away. For the professional or home gourmet chef, the Scrub Shoppe has chef coats and hats, as well as tuxedo shirts. The Peninsula Scrub Shoppe is open Monday - Saturday 10:00am - 6:00pm through the Holidays, for more information call Randy at 907-420-0977.
