Healthcare professionals in Dallas-Fort Worth have a new go-to resource for gearing up and feeling fashion-forward while committing each day to caring for others. Scrubs & Beyond, the largest omnichannel retailer of healthcare apparel and accessories in the country, is expanding its service to Dallas-Fort Worth healthcare workers with the opening of new brick-and-mortar stores in Hurst and Lewisville. The two new retail locations join four other existing locations in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Scrubs & Beyond, a 20-year veteran of the healthcare apparel industry recently acquired by Kindthread, is dedicated to serving healthcare professionals by offering a vast selection of stylish products and outstanding customer service to those in the business of helping others. The retailer operates 117 stores across the U.S., as well as a robust digital marketplace that accommodates individual orders, group orders, custom embroidery requests, and more. 

“Everyone at Kindthread is devoted to bringing elevated, world class products and experiences to healthcare professionals and we are pleased to bring two new Scrubs & Beyond stores to our community in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said David Murphy, chief executive officer of Kindthread. “Our aim is to help every healthcare worker look and feel their best and make the process of buying their work uniforms as effortless as possible - whether in store or online.” 

From classic scrub pants and tops to lab coats, jackets, shoes and more, Scrubs & Beyond raises the bar for fashion in the healthcare industry. The new store will feature many of the retailer’s best sellers and options that allow fashion-conscious men to feel confident and comfortable on the job. Other popular items include scrub pants with inspirational messages in the waistbands; compression socks in fun and vibrant patterns such as tie dye; accessories like t-shirts to layer under scrub tops and Scrubs & Beyond’s own private label line, Beyond Scrubs. 

“As the Dallas-Fort Worth population continues to experience steady growth, so does the number of healthcare workers who live and work in the area,” said Michael Vermilion, chief commerce officer at Kindthread. “At Kindthread, we’re eager to share our passion for delivering innovative products and memorable experiences with the healthcare and service professionals via the Scrubs & Beyond brand, which healthcare professionals have known and trusted for more than two decades.”

However, as its Scrubs Club members know, shopping at Scrubs & Beyond isn’t just about finding top-of-the line, in-demand apparel. It’s also an experience where healthcare workers feel appreciated and understood. Enhancing the customer experience has been a major focus of bringing this new store to life. Aside from store associates’ vast product knowledge – many of Scrubs & Beyond associates are healthcare professionals themselves. Scrubs & Beyond is committed to offering a full-service shopping experience to help determine customer’s needs, such as assisting with personal shopping, offering embroidery services and sharing information about special fitting events.

Beyond offering an expansive selection of colors in the latest on-trend styles and collections from the industry’s most popular brands, Scrubs & Beyond is sizing inclusive with most garments offered in men’s and women’s sizes XS to 3X. Some products offer extended sizes including XXS and 4X to 6X, as well as Petite, Short and Tall pant options.

In addition to creating exceptional experiences for healthcare workers updating their own work wardrobes in-store, Scrubs & Beyond also works closely with many leading healthcare facilities and providers in Hurst and Lewisville to serve their scrub and uniform needs. 

“Understanding and catering to the needs of those who work in healthcare is the foundation of Scrubs & Beyond,” said Angela Mahoney, head of stores for Scrubs & Beyond. “Our brands and product lines are selected specifically for their comfort and durability that stand up to the big demands of a healthcare professional’s job. At the same time, we celebrate the intersection of functionality and fashion, giving healthcare heroes the ability to showcase their personal style and look as great as they feel.”

DQ Seven Points Danny Van

The Dairy Queen of Seven Points is hosting its 20th Annual Auto Show Saturday, October 1 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. benefiting the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake. Registration will be on-site at 11 a.m. with an Awards Ceremony starting at 2:30 p.m. The Dairy Queen of Seven Points is located off Highway 334 at 274 at 110 W. Cedar Creek Parkway. The event is open to the public. 

 

Awards will be presented in 27 different Classes, including Model A; Best Bike; Truck; 4x4; Sports Car; Best Restored; Factory Hot Rod; Street Rod; 50s/60s; 70s/80s; Muscle Car; Project; Import; Most Unique; Most Radical; plus 10 Head Turners and one Best of Show. 

 

Entry fee is $20 per vehicle along with a donation of cat or dog food. All proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake. Pet adoptions through the Humane Society also will be available on site. 

 

“My husband Danny was a big supporter of the Humane Society,” said Shirley Leone, owner of the Dairy Queen of Seven Points. “He would write personal checks for beds, fans and heaters throughout the year. Our goal is to raise enough funds to replace the Humane Society’s ‘Danny Van,’ which is used to transport animals for adoption.”

 

During the car show, Dairy Queen of Seven Points will donate a portion of sales to the Humane Society. They also will sell Skeeter Cups (pup cups filled with soft serve ice cream and dog treats on top) for $3 per cup with 100% of the Skeeter Cupssales donated to the Humane Society. In addition, proceeds from a 50/50 raffle, prizes and t-shirt sales will benefit the Humane Society. 

 

“Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than $30,000 to the Humane Society,” explained Mrs. Leone. “Last year we donated $6,400 and we are hoping to exceed that this year. The Humane Society is currently short around $10,000 to get the new Danny van. So, we have our goal for this year’s event!”
