WESTCHESTER SQUARE - With the new school year quickly approaching, parents in The Bronx say their children?s school uniforms are increasingly difficult to come by.

The line at Flynn O?Hara Uniforms in Westchester Square stretched outside the store and down the sidewalk this morning.

Some parents say it is not uncommon to wait several hours at that store, while others complain of the rising costs of the uniforms.

The owner of Flynn O?Harra says parents should pick up their uniforms earlier or order them online. He says had no plans to increase staff leading up to the start of school.
