Smarter Uniforms: A Parent’s Review

Luci is one of many parents who has found Smarter Uniforms to be really helpful over the past year. She shares how useful and affordable our availability of all year round of second-hand uniforms is, for her and her family;

“Tucked away behind the fantastic ethical trading shop ‘FAIR’ on Queen’s Road, is the equally fabulous Brighton and Hove Smarter Uniforms pop up shop. It’s the most helpful shop for all your school uniform needs and stocks preloved uniform from P.E. kits to pinafores, polo shirts to fleeces. For the last few years, it has been my go to place, to replace the countless items of ‘lost’ uniform and stock up on school sweatshirts or cardigans without breaking the bank. The quality of uniform is always good and there are generally plenty of sizes of the different items. I have always been able to find what I am looking for and have been impressed by the organisation of the shop and the helpfulness of the staff.”

“The great thing about Smarter Uniforms is that you can take in your old uniform and swap it for vouchers to spend on replacement uniform. With 2 children at primary school, the sheer volume of uniform can sometimes be overwhelming! It’s really great to know that I can bundle up the outgrown uniform and take it into the shop for recycling and come out with good quality replacements. So, as we are approaching the end of the school year, please consider donating your old uniform to the shop. If you’ve never been in the shop before, take a look at what they have in stock and you may be surprised at how easy it is to sort the coming year’s uniform!”
