The Zip Yard has Athlone all sewn up!

The Zip Yard Athlone celebrated its 3rd year in business with customers this week. Front of house and Athlone native, Libby Devery Noone, has been with the store since it opened and she said “We have had a great 3rd year in business in Athlone and are delighted with the feedback we get from our customers”, adding “There’s a great energy in the Zip Yard, and a policy to deliver a high quality service. People are now more inclined to look at items they already have in their wardrobe and the possibility of updating them before they consider spending unnecessarily. That’s where we come into the equation. We offer advice on repairing, remodeling and resizing your wardrobe”.

  The Zip Yard is Ireland’s only alterations boutique, with twenty-seven stores nationwide. The national franchise has known the measure of success since beginning in April 2009. The Zip Yard Athlone specialise in repairs, remodelling and restyling of garments and employs four staff locally and over 150 nationally.

  Tailoring to public needs, The Zip Yard Athlone offers a wide range of specialist services including  clothing repairs, garment restyling, resizing of internet purchases, curtain-making, suit tailoring, communion & confirmation, back to school, wedding, bridal and formal dress alterations, home furnishings and leather repairs, with an optional one-hour express service.

  The Zip Yard Athlone also caters for after hour appointments which have proven very popular with bridal parties in their preparation for the big wedding day. The Zip Yard Athlone store has it all sewn up with an ‘open kitchen’ format where customers can see seamstresses at work as well as a comfortable seating area where they can relax while waiting. The fitting rooms are private and customers no longer have to stand in the centre of a shop while being fitted. The brand, easily identified by its logo colours yellow & black, along with a strong focus on customer service is the secret behind the ever-growing Zip Yard group.

  The Zip Yard Athlone has a quick turnaround on all orders. They send a text to the customer when their garment is completed and they even offer a loyalty bonus point system. In a time when people are more conscious of what’s in their pocket, it is an ideal recession-busting opportunity for shoppers and stylish men and women alike.
