PLEASE READ: Important Information about Marsden Uniform Shop as at 5 April 2019

Marsden will be improving how you purchase school uniforms. The school has decided to partner with New Zealand Uniforms, a leader in the school uniform space, to be our exclusive provider and seller of Marsden uniforms. 

Our existing uniform shop will remain open in our present space in Marsden Village until 21 June 2019. There will be approximately one month of transition as we move out of that space and into New Zealand Uniforms. We will be open for business at New Zealand Uniforms from the first day of Term 3 (29 July 2019). 

As of 5 April 2019 we will no longer be accepting secondhand uniform to sell on your behalf.

We’re doing this for two reasons. First, so that we can provide Marsden families with a better shopping experience with 24/7 access to online sales, home delivery, and a broader range of products from which to choose. Secondly, Marsden is in the business of teaching and we wish to focus on doing that, not running a uniform shop. 

Below are some answers to questions we anticipate you may have. 
  • Where is New Zealand Uniforms located?  New Zealand Uniform has two locations: One at 168 Thorndon Quay, not far from Westpac Stadium, and a second in Porirua at 5b/16 Parumoana Street. Both stores are open six days a week during normal business hours but items can be purchased online 24/7, 365 days a year.
  • Can we still go in for a fitting at New Zealand Uniforms? Yes! The sales staff in the store will have our uniform guidelines and are happy to do fittings with or without an appointment. You can book an appointment with them online as well.   
  • What do I do with my existing Marsden uniform?  Nothing! Moving to NZ Uniforms will not affect anything except making it easier for you to shop. Your uniform will remain the same. 
  • Can I sell used uniforms to New Zealand Uniforms?  No. In the coming months before the uniform shop is closed, Marsden will set up a Facebook page called “Marsden Uniforms” for families to buy, sell, and swap used uniforms outside of the framework of the school. 
  • I have uniforms in the Marsden shop on consignment. What happens to them?  We will either return these to you for you to sell or trade on the Marsden Uniforms Facebook page or you can donate them to the school.  
Should you have any further questions, please reach out to John Thomason, our COO, at john.thomason@marsden.school.nz

We also have some second hand uniform items available, but these must be purchased from the shop personally. Mail order is not applicable. The shop also has items of Marsden memorabilia suitable for keepsakes, gifts and visitors.
