Price, quality, selection: Chilliwack clothing retailer taps into growing market

Take the whole family from work to play in one visit!

The brands you like, the quality you need and the prices you can want.

Work N Play Clothing Company is Chilliwack’s local choice for quality, affordable workwear and weekend casual clothing, but did you know they also have oh-so-cute baby gear and, yes, even Mother’s Day gift ideas?

Here’s just a sampling of what’s in store …

Your local choice

First, there’s the prices. Locally owned and operated, Work N Play is part of a buying group, meaning they can offer prices that are often better than what you’ll find at the big box stores, notes owner Cora Vandenbrink.

“I like to pass these savings on to our customers and people realize that – and appreciate it!” she says.

They also appreciate the wide range of offerings for men, women and children – from high-vis workwear to fun, fashionable weekend wear.

Born and raised in the community, Vandenbrink opened Work N Play in 2015, answering a need not only for men’s workwear, but clothing that takes the whole family from work to play.

Workwear made for women

As more women embrace trades careers, clothing manufacturers are answering a need. “We have a lot of women working in the trades who had to wear men’s workwear. Now they have clothing designed just for them, including rainwear, boots and high-vis gear – they’re thrilled to find that.”

The store also offers a scrubs line for those in the medical fields. Coming up, watch for Carhartt to add their take on nursing wear, joining the Dickies and Cherokee lines.

Back to Mother’s Day, the store is also chock-full of gift ideas from all her favourite lines, like Helly Hansen, Kuhl, Esprit and Point Zero, plus a variety of accessories. Can’t decide? A gift card is always the right size!

Kid-friendly clothing

Knowing kids need clothes that play as hard as they do, Carhartt also launched a children’s line featuring everything from onesies to bib overalls. Pair that with go-to footwear brands like Kamik, Keen, Bogs and, yes, an array of fun, functional rubber boots, and you’ll be set for spring!

(Looking ahead, be sure to check out their go-anywhere summer sandals too.)

Branding your business

If you’re looking to brand your business or sports team through clothing, they do that too! Through WNP Creative, the knowledgeable team can walk you through the many options for T-shirts, jackets, caps and more.

“It can be overwhelming if you’re unfamiliar with the options and process,” Vandenbrink says. “Because we have access to so many different lines, the selection is huge, but because we work so closely with manufacturers, we also know what will work best for your needs.”
