Kirkby Market Trader of the Month – September 2018

by Laura Johnston

Introducing Kirkby Market’s Trader of the Month for September 2018…

Lyndsey Shelley at Lyndsey’s Alterations and Dry Cleaning

Tell us about your business:

“I offer curtains and clothing alterations as well as a dry cleaning service in my business. My alterations can involve tapering, shortening, replacing zips, taking dresses in and any other type of alterations my customers request. Depending on how busy I am, I can offer same day service or do the work within a week. I run a Facebook page and often advertise the business in The Kirkby Extra.”

How did you start?

“I used to work for ‘Sew & Sew’ in the ‘In Shops’ and when they were closing down, I took the opportunity to start my own business in June 2014. When I heard about the new Kirkby Market opening and spoke to the Market Manager about setting up my own business, I was given two stalls to work on six days a week. Lyndsey’s Alterations and Dry Cleaning is unique as there’s no one else on the market with this type of business.”

What offers do you have running at the moment?

“My business has now expanded to dry cleaning and I offer three dry cleaning garments for £13.99.”
