The Zip Yard
The Zip Yard was founded in 2005 after extensive market research identified a gap in the market where it found how very few body shapes conform to the ‘standard’ European sizes found on the High Street.
They also realised that people no longer had the time or skills to tackle even the simplest of hems let alone risking damage to a favourite or expensive garment.
Originating in Ireland The Zip Yard grew into a franchise with shops all over the country and entered the British market place in early 2010. The success of The Zip Yard has relied on taking a different approach to the clothing alterations business. People want their garments, whether they are ‘every day’ items or ‘special occasion’ wear altered by trained professionals they can trust, quickly and efficiently, in clean modern premises.
This has led to our branches enjoying a high volume of repeat business on a weekly basis.
The Zip Yard specialises in all types of alterations including denim, leather, fur, suit tailoring, bridal, evening wear, restyling and upcycling, home furnishings and basically anything else that fits under a sewing machine!
Quick turnaround, premium finish and efficient service with a smile, come and see them for all your alteration needs.
