ONE of London’s oldest tailoring and alterations shop has expanded into a new site in Perivale.

UK Tailors, a family business, will also be investing in the latest eco-friendly dry cleaning machines in Wadsworth Road.

Gabriel Hidalgo and his team will boast one of the greenest tailoring and dry cleaning centre in the country. The new premises runs off solar power, while electric vans will make deliveries.

Mr Hidalgo said: “We’re excited about this move into dry cleaning. As a company we’re very environmentally-conscious.

“Implementing a system that was gentle to both garments and the environment was very important to us and hopefully sets us apart from the competition.”
