Ericka’s Tailoring first opened on Lebanon Rd. in Donelson in 1993 by Margie Rodriguez (Ericka is her daughter). Margie was born in the United States in Nogales, AZ, but moved to Mexico at the age of 2. She lived in Mexico as a child and started sewing at 14, returning to the U.S. at the age of 15 and opened her first alterations shop in San Jose, CA in 1980. After 13 years having her own alterations shop in California, she moved to Nashville and opened the shop here in Donelson. Ericka’s Tailoring moved to Donelson Plaza in 2000, and remained at the same location until 2018, when the plaza was being remodeled. We are now at 2720 Old Lebanon Rd., Suite 101, in the small center next to Donelson Plaza. As a member of the local Donelson business community for over 29 years, and being a strong supporter of Donelson charities including police benevolent activities, McGavock H.S. sports, and local medical equipment sponsorship for needy patients, Ericka’s Tailoring continues to be a strong force in the Donelson business community. With 58 years experience in alterations, Margie Rodriguez has survived problems in business encompassing everything from the recent pandemic, being forced to relocate amid remodeling chaos, and employee turnover – even including those sabotaging her reputation, stealing her customer list and calling them soliciting their business in an effort to start their own shop. Small businesses and alterations shops come and go, but Margie has been in Donselon for 34 years and is still in the shop, working as hard as possible to meet your alterations needs. She would happily welcome seeing her many longtime and loyal customers again as well as new clients who want to see the difference that 58 years of sewing experience can bring to their alterations results. Come see her today!
