Langleys Solicitors has advised on the purchase of Alterations Express, a long established garment repair shop in the centre of York.
New owner and businessman David Binelli has also taken on the lease of the premises in Fossgate.
Alterations Express was established in 1999 and employs five machinists. David has brought in Roslyn Clifton to manage the business which he says has great potential to expand.
David said: “Roslyn has huge experience in sales, particularly in curtains and soft furnishings, and she will be a great addition to the team. We plan to grow our garment alteration and repair business and look forward to continuing to provide a high quality service to longstanding and new customers.”
David has run an electronic repairs business – DBS Service Centre – for more than 30 years and has outlets at Clifton Moor, York and Newcastle.
Amy Taylor, assistant solicitor in commercial property at Langleys, acted on the purchase of Alterations Express and the assignment of the lease for the premises.
She said: “Alterations Express is a successful enterprise and we are pleased to support David as he takes on the business and maps out his plans for expansion.”
