About Us

The Mending Shed first opened its doors in June of 1971. Today we are a thriving small business specializing in a wide range of repairs with a fully stocked showroom and a growing online store. We are located in scenic Orem, Utah and are close to Salt Lake City, Brigham Young University and many world famous ski resorts including Park City, Snowbird, Deer Valley and Sundance.



The Mending Shed is a thriving small business, with a strong belief in not wasting. Craig Palmer founded The Mending Shed back in 1971 as a repair shop for household appliances. With a love of tinkering, and the help of his new wife they opened the doors for The Mending Shed on June 16th 1971. It originally started out as a one room shed, located on State Street in Orem, Utah.

Now we are an authorized service center for many name brands with an experienced team of repair technicians. Items we repair include: vacuums, clocks, lamps, electric shavers, microwaves, appliances (both large and small), power tools, canning equipment, and motorized toys like Razor Scooters and Power Wheels vehicles.

We can even do warranty repairs for most Major Tool brands, plus KitchenAid, Razor and Power Wheels products.

Just bring your item in for repair, we will take a look, give you a quote and call you when it's ready for you to pick up. If you aren't sure if it can be repaired give us a call. We will tell you if it's something we can help you with, if we can't, we will tell you who can.

If you prefer to do your own repairs, we make it easy to get the parts you need. A few of the things we have on hand include: weights and gaskets, oven and range elements, pressure cooker and canning weights and gaskets, common fridge and washing machine replacement parts, KitchenAid Mixer and Blender parts. If we don't have the item you need we can special order it for you. Just call us with your model number and we will find the part you need and you can pick it up when it arrives.

If you are not local to us, we can ship any item we have in stock, even if you do not see the item on our webstore.
