New duds for docs and others

A medical uniform is a basic item, but acquiring them has been inconvenient for the professionals on Whidbey Island.

They often had to shop off island or through a catalog to find suitable garments.

Things changed recently when The Scrub Shop opened adjacent to Schiffman Chiropractic in Oak Harbor.

“We’re the only ones on the island that sell medical uniforms,” The Scrub Shop owner Gloria Schiffman said. “We’ve been able to service people’s needs.”

The Scrub Shop offers work-related medical uniforms in a variety of sizes and a variety of colors, patterns and cartoon character prints.

Schiffman highlighted the affordability of her products, which start at $12.98 for tops and $15.98 for jackets.

She said The Scrub Shop has been well-received by local medical professionals. The shop provides the convenience of an island source for uniforms. For those who used catalogs for their uniforms, they ran the risk of buying clothes that didn’t fit.

She has been working with local offices and she already has contracts with several dentist offices to provide medical uniforms.

Being in business for several months, Schiffman is busy expanding her shop. She is planning to offer a selection of shoes and designer uniforms. Her store is also expanding, with a larger dressing room and extra racks to offer a greater selection of merchandise.

When not working at The Scrub Shop, Schiffman is busy being a mother for her three children, Alyssa, Steven Tyler, and Spencer. Her husband, Steve, owns Schiffman Chiropractic.

The Scrub Shop is open Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is located at 31780 SR 20 next to the Discount Party Store in Oak Harbor. For more information, call 914-1584.
