We are the leader in Flame Resistant Clothing in North Dakota. We've been selling FR clothing from Carhartt, Wrangler and Walls Manufacturing. We don't sell a lot of it from Walls but they've got sizes up to 5X. Last year with the new OSHA regulations we made a commitment to be able to supply FR clothing to our customers that need it. These include electricians, welders and petroleum workers. (I'm not an expert on the requirements. If you have a question you should ask the safety officer in your company who ultimately is responsible for ensuring compliance.
We've been reviewing our 2009 year and one of the BIG winners was the FR category. It went from nothing to being a big deal for us. If the category was a stand alone vendor it'd be in our top 30 vendors. Most of the business is special order through the employers but we carry a pretty good selection in our Grand Forks, Minot and Williston stores.
2009 was great for FR clothing at Home of Economy. We intend to do even better in 2010.
