The Client

Harris Teeter, a longtime customer of ours, has always valued attractive and functional uniforms. We have worked with Harris Teeter through three redesigns and rollouts of new uniforms.


The Challenge

Although Harris Teeter had been a customer of Ukrop’s Threads for over a decade, they 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.


The Solution

During the design stage, we created coordinating dress shirts and polos with a 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. After a panel of Harris Teeter employees chose our design through anonymous process, we won the pricing portion of the bid and again earned the opportunity to serve the Harris Teeter team.
