TGSTORE Becomes Authorised Repairer of GORE Products

Worcestershire, UK (17th October, 2012) – TGSTORE, a leading distributor of GORE clothing and accessories for running and cycling, has become an authorised repairer of GORE products, making them the only major retailer to offer this service in-house.

As specialists in GORE BIKE WEAR™ and GORE RUNNING WEAR™ products, TGSTORE has recently undergone training to be authorised to repair GORE products; although they would previously direct customers to third-parties for repairs, the wealth of feedback and questions they received on the subject prompted them to offer the service themselves. Four TGSTORE staff-members underwent the training, which involved a visit from a GORE technician who demonstrated repairs on the various types of fabrics used in the manufacture of their products, including Windstopper fabrics, GORE-TEX® fabrics, and laminated fabrics. A specialised sealing tape is required for certain fabrics, and this too needed to be demonstrated and understood.

Once TGSTORE has repaired a product, they need to ensure it is still waterproof, and so use testing equipment recommended by GORE. Following this procedure and earning GORE’s seal of approval ensures the GORE-TEX guarantee can be maintained, which includes their GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® promise.

“As a stockist of premium products like GORE BIKE WEAR and GORE RUNNING WEAR, we received a lot of feedback and questions on repairing cycling and running clothing, so we decided to invest in the equipment and training to become authorised by WL GORE to carry out repairs for the products we sell,” a spokesperson for TGSTORE said. “We see this as providing added value to our customers, and it protects their investment in case the worse happens.”
