Mayor ‘Unzips’ John’s New Business

The Lord Mayor of Leeds Councillor David Congreve, and the Lady Mayoress Janet Harper, unzipped a specially made giant six foot zip on Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton to officially open The ZipYard garment repair centre on Monday 28 July.

The ZipYard franchise opportunity opens

Owned by businessman James Neale, the ZipYard created three new local jobs and offers a wide range of alteration and tailoring services, all done on site by trained professionals in a clean, purpose-built environment.

The centre has a separate bridal suite and individual fitting rooms where the company’s skilled seamstresses can pin up alterations in situ.

Says James: “After working within the NHS for the past 20 years, I was ready to embark on a new adventure. The premises I have found is perfect for my flagship store and all being well I plan to open another ZipYard in the surrounding area within 18 months.

“Nowadays not many people have the skill or time to do their own alterations. There’s a real need for a convenient walk-in tailoring and alterations service in Leeds where garments can be pinned up in the privacy of a proper changing room and the work is carried out professionally and quickly."

From dress re-styling and taking in, to letting out garments, to bridal-wear fitting or formal wear alterations, the ZipYard can do it all. There is also a one-hour express service for zips, hems and minor repairs. Shoppers can buy a garment in the morning and have the alterations done in time to wear the outfit that evening.
