Professional Quality at a Reasonable Price
Our goal at Rapids Alterations has always been to provide the highest level of quality at an affordable price. We have been providing this balance to our customers since 1978, and will continue to do so in the future. Our hope is to build long-term relationships with our clients and realize that price is an important factor when choosing a vendor for any service.
Because of the nature of the alterations and repair business, the cost of a service can vary based on what is needed and the time required to finish it properly. We are more than happy to provide you with an estimate and discuss how our prices are determined. The best and most accurate estimates are made in person, so we invite you to stop by our shop and visit with us. We will examine the articles needing service, estimate the cost, and provide you with a reasonable estimate on the spot. Our experienced and skilled team will also be happy to provide their professional opinion on clothing that “just doesn’t fit right.” We can advise you on the best possible way to make your clothing fit perfectly, and the cost involved to do so.
Some of our core services involve a standard price. Below is a list of a few of the most common and their respective prices.
- Hemming slacks or jeans to a shorter length – $13.00
- Replacing a zipper in jeans – $28.00
- Patching a hole or tear – $5.00 and up (depending on the size of the area needing repair)
- Restitching a fallen hem on slacks – $8.00
- Sewing on a button – $3.50
Our shop rate for custom alterations and repairs, or services required beyond the basic options is $45 per hour of work completed. The basic bridal shop rate is $60 per hour; basic leather and fur is also $60 per hour of work completed. Design time and custom work will be billed at $75 an hour. All prices are before tax and notions fee of 5%.
