To the Editor:

Recently I needed some tailoring work done, so I went to my go-to tailor, Oakwood Tailor, near the corner of Park Road and Oakwood Ave.

As I expected, the proprietor, Sal Prizio, did the work I needed promptly, well, and at very reasonable cost. In that visit to his shop I learned that, as with many other small businesses, he was of course closed during the COVID shutdown, and his business hasn’t yet bounced back to its regular level.

I have no financial or other relationship with this tailor, except that I want to help assure that he’ll be around when I need his services next, so I’m writing this letter to tell your readers: for those sleeves that need shortening, trousers that need letting out, or that jacket that would fit better with some altering, try the Oakwood Tailor, at 11 Oakwood Ave. You’ll be glad you did!
