Andy also does in-home service appointments for fittings.
Andy explains, ""I love the Encinitas area because it is a nice area with nice people. People like to come into my store because they do not have to buy new clothes, they just have to alter what they already have and like. My bottom line is that you must be happy with my work and then I am happy"". He went on to explain that he has a lot of items sent from Neiman Marcus, Sacs Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom's and even a factory in Europe! He supports the community by donating gift certificates to La Costa Canyon and San Dieguito High Schools for prom rentals and fundraising events. The alterations by Andy are reasonably priced and have a promised return date so call for a fitting appointment today!
