Don’t toss it! Bring it to the Repair Cafe!

SATURDAY, MAY 28th, 10 am to 3 pm

SAHALI CENTRE MALL, 945 Columbia Street West, Kamloops

Do you have something that isn’t working and you’d rather repair it than throw it away and buy a new one? Fear not: the Kamloops Repair Café is here to help!

Our team of volunteers will assist you in troubleshooting the problem and fixing it. Anything you can carry in (except computers and cell phones) is fair game: clothing, bikes, lamps, hair dryers, toasters, furniture, toys, costume jewelry and more! And here’s the best part: it’s free!

The Repair Cafe “fixers” have the experience to advise, assist and teach you how to carry out the repair. We can even repair some items that are no longer manufactured. Since 2018 our skilled volunteers have diverted hundreds of items from the landfill. If we find the item is not repairable, we will offer advice on where to recycle it.

The Repair Cafe concept arose in the Netherlands in 2010 and has grown worldwide connecting volunteer fixers with “fixees” to reduce waste and conserve resources by reducing consumption.
