Downtown Business Spotlight: Bottoms Up Scrubs

Published

4 minute read

This week’s business spotlight shines on Bottoms Up Scrubs! Located at 4913 48 Street, this specialty uniform store has everything you need if you’re in the medical professional field of work. We sat down with the manager, Jenny, to learn more about this business!

What is your business? 

We are Bottoms Up Scrubs. We’re a specialty uniform shop for medical professionals and chefs, we do a variety of quality uniforms, shoes, accessories. Our customer base has kind of expanded over the last six months with COVID. We’re getting everything from teachers, to eye clinics—a whole gambit of folks looking for scrubs. We’ve definitely gone past that medical professional’s side of things, but that’s still majority of where our niche is.

When did you open? 

The current owner [Linda Stevenett], took over the business in November of 2013, but the business has been around for over ten years, with two previous owners as well. 

What would you say makes your business unique? 

There are a few things that make us unique. For Red Deer, we’re the only specialty uniform store in the city, so that sets us apart. In terms of what makes us unique in the uniform world, we cater to everybody. We carry everything from plus size—in stock—to men’s, maternity, shoe sizes up to a size 43. We definitely make sure to cover the full range, instead of making you special order everything in just because you’re outside the box. 

What are some products/services that you offer?  

We offer everything from uniforms, shoes that are suitable for those long shifts, stethoscopes, watches, all the little accessories, badge reels, that kind of stuff that folks may need to get their day-to-day job done.

Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business? 

When the owner took over the business in 2013 it was already an established business. This was the location it was in when she took it over, so we kept it for that reason because customers knew where we were at still, at that point. The central location for us works well. Were not that far from the hospital, were close to transit, we’re close to a lot of corporate companies like dental offices, theres a lot of that in the area as well. 

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant? 

The diversity of people and the variety of business in the area is a big one for us. There isn’t much in terms of products and services that you can’t find in the Downtown area. The variety of activities hosted by businesses and the DBA adds to the charm that is Downtown. 

I love Downtown Red Deer because… it’s where our story began. Since 2013, we have expanded our business; we do have a location in Calgary, as well. I was down in Calgary for two years setting up that store, but definitely, Red Deer is home, Downtown Red Deer is home—that’s where we start!

EAST TANK FARM EQUITY ARRANGEMENT

EAST TANK FARM EQUITY ARRANGEMENT

In the fall of 2017 Suncor, Fort McKay First Nation (FMFN) and Mikisew Cree First Nation (MCFN) announced the completion of the acquisition by FMFN and MCFN of a 49 per cent interest in the East Tank Farm Development (ETFD) valued at approximately $500 million. The two First Nations independently financed the acquisition, with the offering structured and marketed by RBC Capital Markets.

The agreement is unprecedented in size and scale for the First Nations and Suncor and is part of a growing trend of Indigenous communities as equity owners. The investment will provide a steady stream of revenue to both FMFN and MCFN for a minimum period of 25 years. Located 35 kilometres north of Fort McMurray, the ETFD provides storage, cooling and blending services for bitumen received from Fort Hills.

At a signing ceremony on Nov. 22, 2017, Suncor, Fort McKay First Nation (FMFN) and Mikisew Cree First Nation (MCFN) announced the completion of the acquisition by FMFN and MCFN of a 49 per cent interest in Suncor’s East Tank Farm Development (ETFD).

The two First Nations independently financed the acquisition, with the offering structured and marketed by RBC Capital Markets. The agreement is unprecedented in size and scale for the First Nations and Suncor and is part of a growing trend of Indigenous communities as equity owners.

“We’ve completed a historic deal for energy development in Canada. This unique partnership has been part of a journey that demonstrates how innovative thinking and collaborative spirit can result in a mutually- beneficial opportunity and it has changed the way Suncor thinks about how our Aboriginal neighbours may participate in energy development,” said Mark Little, president, Upstream, at the time of the signing and now Suncor’s president and CEO. “Through this partnership we’ve learned a lot about working together to create something significant, and I look forward to continuing to work together on this joint investment with Fort McKay First Nation and Mikisew Cree First Nation for many years to come.”

The agreement is held in a limited partnership with Suncor called Thebacha, the Dene word for “river.” The investment will provide a steady stream of revenue to both FMFN and MCFN for a minimum period of 25 years.

“The economic benefits generated from this deal will help our Nation to build capacity within our businesses, develop infrastructure in our community, fund social economic programs, and provide us with the means to help pay for education and training for our youth, and will be felt in our community for generations to come,” says MCFN Chief Archie Waquan.

Located 35 kilometres north of Fort McMurray, the ETFD is part of the existing East Tank Farm and adjoins the Hot Bitumen Terminal (HBT) and its associated tanks. Once Fort Hills begins to produce bitumen, the ETFD will receive the Fort Hills hot bitumen via the Northern Courier Pipeline.

“The deal represents one of the largest business investment to date by First Nation entities in Canada, and not only demonstrates the great potential for partnerships between First Nations and industry but serves as a model for how First Nations can achieve greater self-determination through financial independence,” said, FMFN Chief Jim Boucher, Chief at the time of the signing. “It is an example of how First Nations and natural resource development companies can find ways to support each other for the mutual long-term benefits.”
