Workin’ Gear has been a family owned workwear and safety boots store in Fyshwick, Canberra since 1975.
We are not a chain and we are not a franchise. From the building of the Snowy Hydro Scheme and the New Parliament house, we have been putting clothes and boots on thousands of Australian workers. With outstanding customer service, a variety of clothing and safety products, printing, logo, and embroidery services we make you look good. We supply to men and women tradies, corporate office workers, councils, farmers, traffic workers, large corporations and even kids softball teams.
Workin’ Gear has grown to be a well-known brand in Canberra. Family owned for over 43 years, this amazing little store has developed into a Canberra success story and has grown to 4 stores with our stores in Brisbane, Canberra & Newcastle. Always owned by various Canberra families, it has remained so.
In 2012 Jeremy left his Government job and bought Workin’ Gear from another local Canberra family. Back then, Workin’ Gear was located in Paragon Mall, Fyshwick in a small retail shop turning out an amazing amount of clothing for a tiny space! With a couple of small kids and a healthy mortgage, the Archer family needed to roll up the sleeves, get out the broom and tidy up this cracking little business and make it into the superstore it is today! We even added another store in Canberra and a couple more interstate under our now famous REDZ brand!
In November 2014 Workin’ Gear moved from the small shop to the current premises at 51 Kembla Street, which is approximately 3 times larger and was designed with a modern industrial look. With around 450 square metres of retail space, we are now one of the largest workwear and footwear clothing shops between Sydney and Melbourne!
Our workwear store and school uniform shops in Canberra are funky and modern. We run cool tunes. We have a fun and funny customer care vibe that is like visiting a friend but also buying some boots and pants along the way.
We have the most modern workwear shop in Canberra. Our new website will be one of the best in the business. With AFTERPAY we offer more than our competitors. We have turned an old fashioned old school & workwear shop on its head. We run Instagram, Facebook and have a great local and worldwide sales presence.
We offer corporate wear, hospitality wear, tradewear, protective apparel and printing all in one place. We can visit you at your workplace to measure up your staff saving you money! We offer deliveries in Canberra and Queanbeyan. You can shop and pay online, you can visit us 6 days a week – we are open 60 hours per week for your convenience! We have two shops for workwear and school wear which is more than our competitors.
With a huge range of school uniforms in stock in our Holt shop we also look after Canberra kids with their school wear requirements. We can print your logo on your gear to keep your uniform looking sharp and modern. With massive brands like FXD, Steel Blue, Blundstone, Akubra, Bisley and more we have the range and the variety for everyone! Open 6 days a week for all your uniform needs.
