About Us

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.

Furthermore, we 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.

The Zip Yard is the most successful and fastest growing garments alteration franchise in the UK and Ireland - success built on the back of quality, speed, convenience and value, delivered through a network of dedicated and hard-working franchise owners. At the Zip Yard we've also taken 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 Centres enjoying a high volume of repeat business on a weekly basis.
