Medicstox is owned by husband and wife team, Abralin and Sharmaine Tiaga.

The idea for this business started through Sharmaine working in the medical industry and wearing scrubs that did not reflect her own style and were of poor quality.  Finding good quality scrubs that did not look like pyjamas or worse made her feel frumpy was a chore, either driving into Toronto and beyond or buying them online at premium prices. 

How did you get started in your business?

We are the first exclusive uniform and accessories retail store in Durham.  Our mission: to be a one-stop shop that carries high quality, stylish, exciting and fashionable brands.

We are local

We started with the belief that the Uniform Retail sector really needs to stand out locally, to be unique, and THE place to go to for uniforms.  We wanted to make it easy for our clients to get the uniforms they wanted.  We hand select each style and offer curated selections so that client’s individuality is valued.   It’s about learning our client’s styles and needs and building great relationships with them!
