A strong relationship with these schools ensures that PRICEWISE SCHOOLSTORE supply only the best quality garments that have been approved by the schools. The store owner Siobhan said "We have children who have been coming in with their parents to get their school uniforms since beginning nursery school and they are now at secondary or grammar school. We are also now seeing the next generation of children coming in to the store for uniforms. Our staff offer a warm and friendly welcome to customers and we have built a reputation as a leading supplier of school uniforms for schools in Downpatrick, Crossgar, Ballynahinch, Castlewellan, Ardglass and neighbouring towns in County Down”. Siobhan added "We also stock school uniforms throughout the entire year. Our school club enables customers to spread the cost of uniforms over a period to ease the effects on the spend. So, remember that a small deposit secures any item in store. This year we reinvested in our store with a major refurbishment along with a rebranding to provide our customers with a new fresh, modern and comfortable shopping experience.
