M&S launches clothes fixing service to help you save money

Have you ever had a favourite piece of clothing that got damaged or no longer fit quite right? Instead of throwing it away, what if you could easily and cheaply get it fixed and wear it again? Well, now you can, thanks to a new partnership between Marks & Spencer (M&S) and clothing repair experts, SOJO.

Giving clothes 'another life'

M&S wants to help you make your clothes last longer, which is great for your wallet and the environment. They found out that only 1 in 10 people feel confident enough to repair their own clothes, and 6 out of 10 people want shops to offer more services to help them reduce their impact on the planet. That's why they have teamed up with SOJO to offer a new clothing repair service called 'M&S Fixed by SOJO'.

How does it work?

From August, you'll be able to visit a special website called the 'M&S Fixed by SOJO' hub. There, you can choose from a range of repair services, like fixing zips or mending holes in jumpers. The repairs start from just £5, and all you have to do is fill out a simple form online. Then, you send your M&S clothes to SOJO's repair team, and they'll fix them up and send them back to your home within 7 to 10 days.

Learn how to fix your own clothes

In addition to the repair service, M&S will also launch several short 'how to' videos on their 'Plan A - Another life.' website. These videos, made by M&S experts, will teach you simple things like removing bobbles from jumpers or adjusting the length of your trousers. By learning these skills, you can help your clothes last even longer.

So, next time you have a piece of M&S clothing that needs a little TLC, remember that you can give it 'Another life' with the help of SOJO and M&S. Not only will you save money, but you'll also be doing your part to help protect our planet.
