What is the "yellow card"?
The "Sunshine Customer Card" has a UPC code on the back which identifies all your purchases. Using your personal customer number saves time for you and enables us to keep track of your order and purchase history. If you are placing an order and forget what you purchased last month, or last year, we can help you out with this information. We track styles, colors, sizes and other criteria to help us plan production based on these preferences and trends. Each family receives one customer number to use on-line, via phone, store, etc.
Which credit cards do you accept?
Sunshine accepts all major credit cards:
What are your store hours?
Check out our "Store Locations" section for all pertinent information on the store which serves your school.
Can I buy clothes from Sunshine that are plain (or generic) for my child that is not in a "Sunshine" school?
Absolutely! We carry a full line of classic items suitable for all students from pre-kinder through high school â€“(many adults like our durable yet fashionable clothes, too!). Ask our Customer Service Associates to help you.
How do I wash "Sunshine" clothes?
"A little bit of care goes a long way" in Sunshine's garments. Follow the care instructions in the garment. Clothes are "aged" more by washing and by hot dryers than by wearing (especially in the dryer). We suggest cold or warm water, pre-treat spots with a non-chlorine bleach. Machine dry on warm (not hot) or line dry. Many items such as sweaters, sweatshirts, etc., look better when washed "inside out" so lint does not attach to the front, or outside, of the garment.
If my child attends a "non-Sunshine school", can I buy from Sunshine?
We are delighted to serve anyone who wants to purchase our clothes, particularly for "generic" items such as polos, shorts, boys' pants, girls' slacks, skirts, skorts, capris, culottes, jumpers, dresses, sweatshirts, sweaters, blazers, socks, etc. without a logo. We can embroider logos only for "Sunshine" schools.
What is a "special made"?
Sunshine carries a wide range of sizes (regular, slim, husky, etc.) styles, and "cuts" that are suitable for all body types from pre-K two-year olds through high school students of all sizes and shapes. If a student needs a garment that is outside the wide range of sizes available, we can make a "special made" garment (there is a small, extra charge per garment as this is cut and sewn to your specific measurements). Because Sunshine carries such a wide range of sizes and cuts, "special mades" are rarely needed and yet always available as we are the manufacturer of our own uniform line and provide this service "in-house". If you need extra attention, ask to speak with a company supervisor.
Why do I need a different size than I wear in my street clothes?
Every manufacturer makes their clothes a little differently. Perhaps you can wear a size 6 jacket from an expensive line of clothes but need a size 10 from a moderately priced jacket. Jeans and t-shirts have a different fit and feel than polos and slacks. Allow us to fit your student in the correct "Sunshine" size for each item. We both want your student to look good and be comfortable in their clothes, have room to grow and meet the school's dress code guidelines.
Are your clothes really better than what I can buy on sale?
Yes! There is an entire package of service that goes along with the purchase of a required school dress or uniform program. Continuity = being able to obtain the same style, color, cut on an ongoing basis. Availability = all year round, not just as seasonal "fill-in merchandise". R&D (Research and Development) = Sunshine continuously works to improve fabric blends, color richness, etc. and incorporates some "fashion" items into our line. Many Sunshine garments have special soil and stain release treatments and growth features that extend the life of a garment by enabling you to let down a generous hem or let out a specially-designed waistband. Personnel = Sunshine employees know Sunshine merchandise; personnel in department stores rotate from working in clothing today to small appliances tomorrow. Commitment = you have our attention 100% of the time. Providing the best school uniform program at the best possible price is our only business.
How many outfits do I need to purchase?
Good question. The ideal situation is to have at least five tops and five bottoms so you wash only once a week (it's in the washing that most clothes age). Augment that with approved outerwear and accessories and you are set. When you add up the cost of "fashion" clothes (even purchased on sale) vs. the cost of school uniforms, school uniforms save money, especially over time and with pass down possibilities.
What is "resaleable" merchandise?
Items you wish to return must be in the same condition as when purchased so you would want to purchase them again. Tags still on, no alterations or washing and free of "extras" such as cuts, crayons, glue, etc.
What is your refund & exchange policy?
Merchandise must be in resaleable condition with original tags and not altered or washed. Receipt is required and returns and exchanges must be within 30 days of purchase date. Policies are posted in all Sunshine stores.
