“We customize our service, we will phone around to find something if we don’t carry it. We will send them somewhere else if we don’t have it. We are a community-based store.”
Gayle runs Lady Mae Uniforms with the help of her twin sister, Debbie. The store has been open since 1943 and has seen many changes. Now it is the source of uniforms for the medical and hospitality industries all across Vancouver Island. Gayle ensures that the store carries the widest selection of styles, prints, and sizes for all genders. Lady Mae also carries a wide selection of shoes for the medical and hospitality industries. Gayle’s carefully selected stock and commitment to each customer’s individual needs has drawn business from all around the world.
As a small business owner Gayle believes it is her responsibility to support other local businesses and help keep the community thriving. One way that she works with the local community is to partner with the Songhees Wellness Centre at Camosun College.
