Local resident, Kathy Lyons is the CEO and force behind Scrubs Nyack. Back in 2004, she started her business by mainly selling scrubs to area hospitals and dental offices face-to-face. Her wide variety of scrubs products and styles, as well as her competitive pricing incentives, grew a loyal following of medical professionals and many new friendships.
As the Scrubs name and reputation grew, so did the client base. Word of mouth drove inquiries from other medical professionals throughout the region and in 2014 Kathy opened her first store in downtown Nyack.
In August, she expanded the business, opening a store at Palisades Center. Customers will find popular scrubs brands including, Greys Anatomy, Healing Hands, and Sketchers. In addition, Kathy offers services such as custom embroidery, personal shopping, and fittings in store and off-site.
Quality service and relationships always come first at Scrubs Nyack. “I wanted to open a store that was different than the competition,” said Kathy. “Our store is a throwback to the days where you remember the name of the people you help and a feeling of happiness when you see one another. We’ll continue to provide not only great products and services, but an experience that leaves every client feeling and looking great.”
Kathy’s advice to anyone starting a business is to not be afraid. Don’t be intimidated by the obstacles you’ll face. Always be kind, welcoming, and confident.
