Food Service and Facilities Management Giant Aramark Corp. will stop selling its WearGuard-Crest work apparel and accessories brand in its catalog and direct mail pieces.

“Consumer spending habits have changed, and the exit allows WearGuard-Crest to focus on its core business” of designing, manufacturing and distributing corporate uniforms, says spokesperson Sarah Jarvis.

The lease on WearGuear-Crest’s Hanover, MA-based distribution center expires in January; the brand will leave its Norwell, MA, facilities in the next 18 months. Aramark will operate WearGuard-Crest from locations in Reno, NV, and Salem, VA.
