    Hello [​IMG]

    I was wondering does anyone have a good place to get scrubs? I have looked at the local stores, but was wondering if someone ordered some offline and they were cheaper? I checked craigslist but never are any for sale in my size!! I like Koi, Grey's Anatomy, and Buttersoft (for pants) but thats not a determining factor. I only have a couple sets and I need more!!

    Thanks

    Do you work in a hospital? The hospitals I've worked at (or am aware of) supply the employees with their scrubs, colors coordinated by department.
    If it's just for fun, cause they are comfortable; try a uniform shop or outlet.

    Some of the 99 cent stores have them show up for $6 - $10 a piece.

    You know, the ones that aren't reaaally 99 cent only stores. Sometimes the asian markets have them, too... the ones that have more than just food. I have no idea why.

    I buy my pants from Walmart (cheap and I go through them fast by wearing out the knees) and the tops from Tafford (love a cotton/poly blend that doesn't need to be ironed!).

    Really your hospitals provide them? Mine doesn't [​IMG] I am in a clinical rotation but I should be working there in March. I am a MT/MLT, so people in the lab aren't color coordinated. We can wear "dress clothes" if we want, but I perfer scrubs to keep work clothes seperate. I heard someone (a CNA) say something about a uniform "truck" that comes around but I have no clue about this mysterious vechile....

    Thanks for the couple links, I'll check them out!

    I saw walmarts scrubs, but they have like disney characters and I HATE those! Like I said, I have checked the uniform shops around town, but I'm paying around 20-30 bucks a piece for a scrub, when I want to find something cheaper.

    I bought VISA brand from Kmart. I still wear some that I got 10 years ago around the house. They are getting a bit thin now but have no stains and only a tiny tear where the pocket is on the shirt. They have survived the lab at the hospital, grease being spilled on them, foster kitties, yard work, housework, and chickens! [​IMG]

    Hey, that company should have to pay me for this!! [​IMG]

    I got a few solid colored scrubs from Walmart when I was working at the vet office. I think I got purple and teal. Not all walmart have scrubs, but some of them do have solid colors. Have you tried looking on Walmart's online website? They were pretty cheap from what I remember.
