We're open for business!

Barry’s Tailoring Co. is now open for business, since its relocation from Nanaimo to Gabriola Island in Spring of 2022.

The shop is situated on North Rd and will operate by appointment only, Monday through Friday.

Customers can call us at 250-760-0700 to book a visit. Please leave us a message with your contact information and we'll call you back to confirm.

For our loyal and supportive customers in Nanaimo, we're offering in-town appointments once or twice a week. Simply call 250-760-0700 to arrange a pick-up of your self-marked garments, so they can be done and delivered to you at our next trip to town.

Should you require proper fitting by our qualified staff, we'd be happy to accommodate an in-house or in-office visit.

We're entering a new chapter in our lives and are hoping to share our journey with the lovely people of Gabriola Island.

Hope to see you soon for all your clothing alterations, boat canvas, leather & zipper repair, upholstery and sewing machine tune-ups!
