Wright-Johnston Uniforms was founded in 1937 as a men’s clothing store at 1330 Main Street in Columbia, South Carolina. In the early 1970’s, the company began selling public safety uniforms, eventually phasing out of the clothing business altogether. Wright-Johnston is now selling public safety uniforms exclusively so as to devote 100% of its resources and experience toward the satisfaction of its many customers throughout South Carolina.
In 2001, to better serve its customers, Wright-Johnston Uniforms moved into a 20,000 square foot warehouse facility at 601 Taylor Street, located in the heart of Columbia’s central business district. There are 13 employees on staff that are well trained and familiar with the needs and procedures of the uniform business. Wright-Johnston Uniforms has several veteran employees that have been on staff for over 10 years. Included in the staff are 3 full time tailors that are prepared to immediately fit and alter items for each department as necessary. The entire staff of Wright-Johnston is committed to giving the best service possible and of providing the best products available to its customers.
The management philosophy is a simple one: The customer is always right. This belief is one that a satisfied customer is individually the most important part of the success of this business. Great strides are taken to ensure that each customer’s experience, from walking into the store for the first time, to returning through their career for additional needs, be a rewarding and professional one.
