Reimagine Co is hosting a Repair Café at their store!
During this 2 hour event, we will have community members on hand who can help you with your items that need fixing. If you have a small appliance or piece of clothing or something else that needs fixing, please bring it in and have it repaired - for free!
Thanks to our awesome team of volunteer "fixers", more than half of all the broken items that are brought in get repaired! Some of the items that have been repaired in the past are: toaster ovens, curling irons, clocks, lamps, jeans, purses, coats, chairs, radios, microwaves, etc.
21st century humans throw away vast amounts of stuff. In fact, Canadians throw away almost 800 kilos of garbage a year - per person! Sometimes things with almost nothing wrong are tossed out since buying new has become cheaper than ever. These things can easily get a new lease of life after a simple repair. The trouble is, lots of us have forgotten that we can repair things ourselves or we no longer know how to do it. Repair Café is part of a global movement to change that!
