Thangamani says: “I was delighted that Mr Sadiq agreed to pay us a visit and open our new venture. He has always been a great supporter of local businesses and it meant a lot to us that he took the time out of his busy schedule to see us and hear all about The ZipYard."
"I’ve recently retired from the NHS after 30 years of service so launching my own business was a little daunting. The support we have received from the head office team has been outstanding – we are already benefitting from the innovative marketing collateral provided and customers have commented on its high quality. With my son Dijay managing the store, the future looks bright for The ZipYard Sutton.”
Commenting on the opening of the 17th ZipYard centre, managing director Nigel Toplis said: "We are receiving a high number of enquiries from potential franchisees who have seen the outstanding potential of The ZipYard opportunity. We welcome Thangamani and Dijay to our fast-growing franchise and wish them every success.”
From dress re-styling and taking in or letting out garments to bridal-wear fitting or formal wear alterations, The ZipYard can do it all. There are two on-site fitting rooms, one of which forms a dedicated bridal suite, where The ZipYard’s trained seamstresses can pin up alterations in situ. There is also a 1-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.
