Positive fashion: M&S to offer a major Deliveroo-style repair service

M&S repair service

Really good to see all these high street and fashion brands embracing the repair economy. M&S is the latest to team up with Sojo on offering a Deliveroo-style clothing repair service to customers – M&S Fixed by Sojo*. From August, Marks & Spencer customers can book a repair service through a dedicated online hub, allowing access to a range of repair services including zip replacements and invisible knitwear mending (from £5, with repaired items returned to customers within 7-10 days).

Levi’s has also embraced the repair trend. Its Regent Street store has placed its Levi’s Tailor Shop* right at the store entrance, offering alterations, repairs and sometimes remodelling to its customers. (Find your nearest Levi’s Tailor Shop here*). I took some Levi’s jeans in last week to be altered. In the past, this service was free and quick. Now, it’s slightly a victim of its own success (in the brand’s favour, it has to be said); a simple shortened hem is still free but there’s a month-long wait time. If you want a fast-track service, you can pay £10 to have them back in a week. It shows there’s a clear demand for these services while simultaneously building goodwill into the brand by reinforcing its focus on quality, circularity and customer service.
