Description of service

The service was to alter the new suit pants and jacket that I had just bought from a chain store. They altered them right there for a total fee of $18 and I was able to pick them up about three days later. My legs are abnormally short for my height (short legs but long torso) so I usually need to get new suits altered.

Review of Service

I was pleased with the service and $18 seemed fair. I was able to pick up the suit very promptly, and even at the store treated me professionally and were very polite. I use this place a lot, so I know that I can trust them without any hesitation. They have never messed up or brought up any hidden fees or any other shenanigans like that, so I really cannot complain about anything.


My tip would be to find a place that worked for you or a friend and become a regular customer for future alteration needs there if you like them. It is good to find a trusting place to use, even if they might be a few bucks more than some new place you find, because you know what you are getting. Everyone I know that has run into problems had them at some new place they tried out in an effort to save a few bucks.
