Scrubs Of Evans, providing high quality medical apparel

Local couple Mark and Heather Harrell met while he was pursuing a degree in business and she in nursing at Augusta College, now Augusta University. After marrying and building a life together, they prayed about combining their passions and opening a small business in Evans. Their prayers and vision became a reality in 2009 when they opened Scrubs of Evans, which Mark operates while Heather still serves in the local medical community as a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). “We really took my business background and her nursing background and brought them together to create our business,” says Mark. “Everything we did was based on a healthcare worker’s perspective on what was really needed as far as a service, product, and location for this community.”

Together, they decided to launch their business not through a franchise, but as a locally owned and operated store so that they could carefully monitor and choose the products they carry.

“One of the things that is really important to us, being a locally owned specialty store, is we wanted to bring high quality medical apparel to the market,” explains Mark. “We like to take those brands that we know are the best at what they do and then hand pick out of those brands what would be best for this particular market.”

Far from being traditional, the scrubs featured at Scrubs of Evans are fashion-forward with unique, stylish ascents and comfortable athletic-style fabrics. With well-known and loved brands like Healing Hands, Cherokee, Med Couture, Grey’s Anatomy, and IRG, the inventory is full of choices to meet a wide range of needs and preferences. A number of accessories are also available including a large selection of Sockwell compression socks and Dansko footwear.

One goal of the Scrubs of Evans team is to make shopping for scrubs a fulfilling experience by learning about each customer’s needs and preferences. “Since we are an independently owned, faith-based business, it’s very important to us that when somebody comes in, we want to build a relationship with them,” says Mark. “All of our team is trained to create those relationships and create a dynamic experience with the customer where we’re really helping them find what’s best for them.”

“We have a great team of ladies who manage the floor and who really know our product and can help get that person in the product that will be a perfect fit for them,” adds Mark. “They know every scrub we have…. so if you walk in our door, they can know in about sixty seconds based on the person’s body type and what the person’s preferences are, what the top three sets in our inventory will be best for the client to try on.”

In addition to serving individuals, Mark enjoys working with medical practices. “A big part of our industry is creating a professional, branded image for practices and institutions,” says Mark. “It’s a passion of mine to work with the practice managers and practice administrators to brand their particular practice in the community.” Mark strives to make this process easy by offering on-site consultations to assess needs and develop a plan. He also works with managers and administrators to schedule fittings either on-site or in the store. After the order is filled, scrubs are individually bagged and can then be delivered to the practice.

Whether it’s through the storefront, online sales, or working with local practices, Mark says, “The real reason why we do what we do is that we have a passion for serving and being part of our community. Augusta has a very robust health care community, and we get to help them do what they do best. We do this by helping them create a confident, professional image in a product where they are going to be comfortable and able to do everything that they have to do in the healthcare space.”
