Harris Teeter, a longtime customer of ours, has always valued attractive and functional uniforms.

We have worked with them through three redesigns and rollouts of new uniforms for their grocery store staff and Fresh Foods Market team.

They wanted to test the market to ensure they were getting the most competitive pricing, effective fulfillment and on-trend uniforms for their associates.

Program Needs

Offering the winning option

Although Harris Teeter had been a customer of Ukrop's Threads for over a decade, they recently launched a competitive design and bid process with the industry's best suppliers when they decided to redesign their uniforms. While always pleased with our standards of service and quality, they wanted to test the market to ensure they were getting the most competitive pricing, effective fulfillment, and on-trend uniforms for their associates.

Their new bid included staff, management, and deli/bakery apparel. Through an anonymous process, our design was voted best by the Harris Teeter employees and we won the pricing portion of the bid. Assured of our value and product, we were ready to manufacture the uniform design.

Our Solutions

Smart design at a great value

We created coordinating dress shirts and polos using the brand's blue color palette. The new associate polo featured a blueberry body with navy tipping and a flattering V-neck for female employees. The manager dress shirts included choices of men's and women's blue-and-white-checkered tattersall and solid blue woven shirts. We also used Harris Teeter's "bread, fish, and apple" logo to accent the new shirt collars, making the uniform more appealing for team members and more recognizable for shoppers. Chef coats, aprons, and other apparel for the wine and beer bar and Fresh Foods Market were also designed.

Ukrop's Threads has been flawless - handling our programs with awesome customer service, execution, and product quality. You are one of our best business partners, and your team never lets us down."
