About us

Barry's Tailoring Co. is a professional clothing alteration company, located in the commercial neighborhood of Northfield Road in Central Nanaimo. We have been serving the local community since 2004, as well as Customers from Ladysmith, Duncan, Nanoose, Parksville, Qualicum Beach and as far as Tofino and Ucluelet.

Barry's Tailoring is a family run and operated business, which brings over 25 years of experience of designing, manufacturing and retailing garments for everyday use and affordable fashion. It first started serving Nanaimoites at Woodgrove Centre for 2 years, moved to Country Club Mall for the next 5 years, until it opened doors to its own permanent location at 2204 Petersen Place, Nanaimo, BC.

It's an easy-to-find, central-to-everything shop, very close to Old Island Hwy, quite visible in a bright red building with ample paved parking right up front. It's wheelchair friendly and equipped with all facilities needed for a comfortable and pleasant customer experience.

We offer same day service for pant hems and all simple repairs, upon availability, at no extra charge. One can either wait in the reception room, while flipping through a magazine, or come back later.

We provide timely and quality service to Commercial Customers with a pre-scheduled billing as agreed upon. Commercial Accounts are welcome!
