About NYE Uniform
Nye Uniform was founded in 1935 by John Nye in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. We relocated to our current location on the northwest side of Grand Rapids in 1998. Our 18,000+ square foot facility has 3,500 square feet of showroom dedicated to uniforms and accessories, as well as housing all aspects of our business, including tailoring and embroidery.
In 2003, Nye Uniform launched a mobile store designed specifically for the healthwear market. Our 34 foot trailer goes on-site to health care facilities, retirement homes, and hospitals and offers the convenience of a traveling store. In January 2015, Nye Uniform replaced the trailer with a brand new mobile unit. The new larger unit will give shoppers an even better shopping experience, with more items and a better layout.
In 2010, Nye Uniform opened a second store in the metropolitan Detroit suburb of Royal Oak. On January 2, 2014 our store moved to a much larger space seven miles up the road in Troy. This showroom is geared almost exclusively for public safety (police, fire, sheriff and ems) personnel. The new Nye Uniform East is bringing the public safety shopping experience to a whole new level.
