A $25 non-refundable fee will be charged to hold this appointment time, which will be applied to the cost of your alteration.

Online scheduling is available for appointments in the next 1-7 days. If you need an alteration completed within the next 3 days, please use the form below or call us at (773) 274-9775 to see if we can fit you in. Please note that we are closed Mondays, Fridays and most major holidays, and that our usual office hours are approximately 10:00am – 6:00pm.

But why all the extra fees?

Because this is a very small business (just me!), my calendar fills up weeks and even months in advance. When you need a rush alteration, that means staying late or coming in on a day off to complete the work quickly for you. The rush fee is essentially overtime pay for the extra hours I spend working just for you.

Of course, I understand that advance planning is not always possible and emergencies sometimes happen, and I WANT to accommodate you; the appointment fee shows that you are as committed to the time being set aside for you.
