The DENNIS Retail Experience

The DENNIS Retail Experience

We’ve built a reputation for providing excellent service in our uniform stores since we opened our first retail location in 1951. Now with more than 40 locations around the nation, we continue to offer the parents we serve friendly, stress-free shopping experiences. After more than a hundred years in operation, outfitting students and helping families find the fit they need, our local stores still inspire our company’s outlook. Our mission is to make shopping easier every way we can.

Preparing to Shop

Families can prepare ahead, budget and save time by viewing their shopping list online in their customized webstore or by simply accessing the shopping list while at a store if their school is regional to one of our retail locations. Store associates are experts in sizing and fit and are more than happy to assist in stores, but parents can also measure their student at home before shopping online or in person if preferred. We offer helpful how-to videos, size guides and lots of tips and tricks for getting the perfect fit in our Size & Fit hub online.

At DENNIS Stores

Our store associates are dedicated to making sure families are completely taken care of – from assistance with basic shopping needs to specialized fit and custom sizing guidance. They help make back-to-school shopping enjoyable and easy! Students can try on uniform items in private fitting rooms and explore the full required looks. Communication is also a priority – Spanish-speaking team members wear pins that say Yo hablo español to help identify themselves to shoppers who prefer to speak Spanish.

Shopping Online

Many families purchase some or all their uniform items or accessories online – a convenient option that’s easy to complete at We’re proud to deliver an industry-leading ecommerce platform that offers parents a smooth and simplified online shopping experience. Our customized webstores allow shoppers to easily find what their student needs and complete orders quickly with a fast checkout process. Our goal is to give online shoppers the same helpful, friendly experience they receive in stores! Any returns, if required, can be returned to directly to stores or can be initiated online and returned by using our fast app.

Whether families choose to do their back-to-school uniform shopping online or at a local DENNIS store, they’ll receive expert help and guidance to get their students ready for a new school year!
