A PERFECT FIT FROM DAY ONE
"We love taking care of our animals and our guests, and Lands' End takes care of us," says Jeff Bullock, director of the Greenville Zoo in South Carolina. "We know they have our back."
With 275 animals and averaging 315,000 guests a year, Greenville Zoo keeps its staff busy all day, every day, whether they're caring for animals, assisting guests or providing educational programs. "We're here to serve and educate the public," says Bullock. "We're a small zoo with a big heart. It's just so special to see the kids come out and get excited. They know all the animals. That's that magic that really makes the whole zoo worth it."
When it came time to select a new uniform provider, Bullock wanted to make sure everyone looked and felt their best on the job. "Everybody's a different size and trying to meet all those needs was almost impossible," he explains. With Lands' End, he says, "it's been more of a collaboration."
Greenville Zoo's custom online store made it easy for each employee to find clothing that fit. "We were able to let the staff order their own uniforms and get specifically what they needed in the sizes they needed," says Bullock. "It made a difference. It kind of gave them ownership, made them feel like an individual."
This quick and easy outfitting solution from Lands' End gave valuable time back to Bullock and other zoo administrators. "It really took a lot of that pressure off us as supervisors and managers. And from the perspective of the staff as well as the management team it was a great experience."
That means everyone at the Greenville Zoo can focus on the amazing animals they feel privileged to look after, from Autumn the giraffe to Adira the orangutan—as well as taking care of thousands of visitors.
Bullock is pleased to have found a partner that offers seamless care for his team's outfitting needs. "With Lands' End Business," he says, "you're in good hands."
