In 1993, when Jim Weldon was an active duty Philadelphia Police Sergeant, he could not have forseen that his small idea would one day be Uniform Gear. Jim needed a part-time way to supplement his income and he decided to sell police products from his small garage and a family van. After a few years, it became obvious that this part-time occupation was turning into a full-time job. Soon after, a 16-ft. delivery truck was purchased and made into a portable store. The truck was taken to districts, within Philadelphia, allowing officers to purchase their products before or after their shift. With the help of family members managing finances and orders, this small business continued to grow. Jim then decided to retire from the Philadelphia Police Department after 22 years.
 In May of 2000, Jim and his wife, Mary, took a huge chance and opened a 1000 sq. ft. store - Uniform Gear Inc., with hardly any capital or customers...and so it began! Within the next few years many important additions happened at Uniform Gear. Fresh with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Temple, Jim and Mary s oldest daughter, Jamie, joined the team as Commercial Manager. After graduating Temple with a Bachelor s degree in Public Relations and a Minor in Business, their youngest daughter, Jessica, joined Uniform Gear as Operations Manager.
With the addition of Jamie and Jessica, Uniform Gear has been able to grow enormously. Since 2000, Uniform Gear has added two addition buildings in their Northeast Locations, totaling 7,500 square feet. In August 2015, Uniform Gear opened a second location in Delaware County.
With two retail stores, tailoring services, heat pressing, name tag engraving, silk screening and a full embroidery department, Uniform Gear s goal is to continue to grow and create opportunities for current and new employees. Uniform Gear and its employees strive for customer loyalty and satisfaction which is earned by exceeding the expectations of our customers. We build relationships with our customers based on trust and commitment.
Being members of a public safety family, Uniform Gear gives its customers a place where they can feel like family when they shop with us. Uniform Gear gives every customer the service they deserve, products they can depend on and a price that is competitive.
