At least 12 parents have complained to the Better Business Bureau about the company, Parker School Uniforms. Some families have received parts of their orders, while others have placed orders that are backlogged.

A staffer at the company referred inquiries to its corporate office. A PR rep for the company said in a statement:

“Serving families at this busy time of year has been our privilege for more than 80 years.

“That?s why we especially regret the frustration and inconvenience that some customers have experienced this summer due to delivery delays.”
