After giving this business unqualified praise for almost a decade I’m afraid I have to report a bad experience that others need to mindful of. Maybe the years are catching up with Maria but her shop, on my first visit in several years, looked noticeably less organized. Still, i dropped off some suit pants, feeling that no ticket or receipt was just as safe as it was years ago. Then i went to pick up, and I realized my error. Maria spent 20 minutes or so searching high and low in the morass of tailoring projects festooning her shop. She came up empty — except some pants that were identical but bigger by 4 inches in the waist. By then a line of customers had assembled and she advised to call back in the afternoon. At that point I knew I’d never see my stuff again. The recommended call brought no change in status. Although she insisted that she didn’t give my pants to someone else the fact that there was an identical item only bigger leads me to think there’s a fatter version of me out there wondering how his pants got too tight. I’m not saying don’t patronize this business. I do recommend you take precautions even if you never did in the past. INSIST on a ticket or receipt. It’s not how she does business but it’s time she start. Also note her weekday closing time. It’s 6pm, not 6:30 as her door sign lists.

Had some suit pants altered here last week (big sale at Macy’s, but the pre-hemmed pants weren’t quite long enough). She’s pretty impressive–barely needed to even measure to mark the proper length, didn’t give me a ticket or anything, and remembered me when I came back a week later. Didn’t even need to remind her which pants were mine. Did a great job too.

Great work, great price ($10), great service.

Ladies, has anyone had any experience with bridal/formal dress alterations at Maria’s? Would you recommend it?

Maria lengthened the sleeves on a jacket of mine and did a good job. She charged a fair price too.
