The easy-to-wear, durable collection of schoowlear ranges from shirts to skirts, trousers to blouses, knitwear and sportswear will all be available in a range of sizes to suit the growing needs of today’s school children.

Teflon coated blazers start from £19.99, with easy care non iron trousers and skirts from £8.99.
Commenting on the opening at Ross Labels, Clare Rix, Trutex marketing director, said: “These are incredibly exciting times for the company. School Uniform Shop has an enviable reputation as the leading schoolwear specialist in the area, and Ross Labels is recognised as the area’s largest, and one of the UK’s leading Factory Outlets, together creating the perfect platform to showcase the Trutex range. We are delighted to be associated with both businesses and will continue to support them in their efforts to provide a professional service for schools at the exceptional price points, that Ross Labels has built its business and reputation on.”
Luke Conod, managing director of School Uniform Shop, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be unveiling our first partnership with Trutex in Ross Labels, the region’s busiest and largest factory outlet. This is a great addition to our portfolio of stores in Herefordshire and one we are confident will be well received by our customers.”
Ross Labels’ retail director, Chris Rose, added, “We’re delighted to welcome the Trutex brand to Ross Labels. We already enjoy a very good relationship with our local schools, and this new in-store facility underpins that support.”
