C&J School Uniforms has kept things uniform for Tulsa area schools since the store opened in 1996. Having met when their children were young and in uniforms, co-owners Joyce Fuller and Chari Edwards shared the desire of providing affordable but quality school uniforms. Their desire became a reality and C&J opened its doors in the Fontana Shopping Center at 51st Street and Memorial Drive.
Business growth over the past 20 years has required the store to move four times, all within the Fontana complex. Presently, C&J sits facing Memorial Drive next to Lenny’s Subs.
C&J School Uniforms focus is on outfitting private, public and parochial schools while providing outstanding customer service. The staff is focused on helping families with their back-to-school needs. The store is Tulsa’s premiere one-stop shop for school uniforms from head to toe. The shelves at C&J are stocked with quality brand merchandise. Garments are made of durable, easy-to-care-for fabric.
To ensure a student is appropriately dressed, each school’s individual updated dress code is available. In-house alterations are provided for the customer’s convenience. Customers will also find unique items such as teddy bears dressed in uniforms, backpacks, headbands and bows, all to match students’ uniforms.
Annually, C&J offers a month-long sale in June to begin the Back to School season. This year, June 6 – 11, C&J is having its customer appreciation week. The 20-year celebration will include additional discounts, drawings for prizes, balloons, goodies and more.
After years of experience in this industry, Fuller and Edwards recommend parents begin their shopping early in the summer in order to beat the back-to-school rush.
C&J School Uniforms is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. During the month of August, the store has extended hours.
Fuller and Edwards want to thank all of their customers for their trust and confidence in their small local business for the past 20 years. They invite customers to see them for all uniform needs and accessories.
