Changes are coming for BarryBasics…. Styles & Brand Name
We have spent the last year listening to our customers and working with caregivers & patients who have worn our apparel. Lots of good feedback. To operate within this economy, new production for 2013 and 2014 will be limited to the most popular apparel pieces with snap fasteners for men and women. Colors and fabrics will also be limited to ensure the best price for customers. After successful testing, new denim fabric will be introduced for shorts. Current inventory will be offered at a reduced price in September. The basic design feature will be the same - slip across the body and snap shirts and pants.
The retail trade name of BarryBasics will be changed to "MedCareWear." Research indicates that the brand name change may make it easier for our customers to find us. We are excited! More changes will come on both web sites - BarryBasics/MedCareWear and the Al Barry Foundation.
BarryBasics will remain as the apparel label for the Al Barry Foundation. The Foundation will take a new step by moving forward with selling BarryBasics apparel in order to fund the Gift Program for Wounded Warriors, Veterans, and Cancer Patients. Raising funds is becoming more difficult but we will work within the Foundation's 501(c)(3) mission to accomplish our goals. All current Foundation inventory will be gifted before year's end.
We want to continue to serve recovering patients with mobility challenges so please contact us and we will work with you to respond to your apparel needs. We will be keeping our friends, customers and supporters advised of the progress we make over the next few months. We sincerely thank you for your support and encouragement the past five years.
