I think any tailor can help you with. Not sure of the price though. And if our item is high end then you can't expect the zipper that replaces it to be on par with the original.

Stitch @ Metro. It's located beside Old Navy near the wash rooms. They fixed the zipper on my jeans for $20.

Similar question, but are the one-way and two-way zippers built differently? My peacoat has a one-way, and I was wondering if I can just add another head onto the line. Cause when I sit down, the bottom of the jacket bunches up.

this is the exact reason my zipper broke. it kept bunching up at the bottom and finally the zip broke the end off the zipper and lost several teeth in the process, so i need a new one now, hopefully with a 2-way setup.
