The Zip Yard franchise opened its first store within the Stretford (Manchester) Tesco Extra on 10-Aug-21; in Nottingham’s Toton Tesco Extra on 14-Sep-21 and in Hayes Bulls Bridge, Southall, London in October 2021.
These openings with Tesco mark a new partnership which is being trialled in these 3 stores, offering shoppers easy access to repairs, alterations, upcycling or restyling for their clothes and home accessories, so they fit better and last longer.
Neluka Dunning, Owner of The Zip Yard UK Master Franchise commented;
“We’re delighted to be working with Tesco to provide Zip Yard stores within their Tesco Extra stores. Clothing has the fourth-largest impact on the environment after housing, transport and food and results in almost £140 million worth of clothes being thrown away each year – mostly to landfills. Wearing something for an extra nine months can reduce its carbon footprint by 20-30% and we hope shoppers will be encouraged to bring in their garments for alterations and repair rather than throwing them away.
Our company mission is to give as many people as possible the opportunity to extend the life of their clothes and the Tesco Extra Zip Yard stores will do just that. From simple zip repairs to trouser alterations and wedding dress and suit tailoring, we will be offering a personal service and exceptional quality finish to every customer and our on-site fitting rooms will allow for professional tailoring.”
