Where can I get garden shears and secateurs sharpened?

I'm not sure exactly where you would go, but I do know that any local hardware/seasonal store would be able to help you out. Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware. Stores like these may have your answer.

Do it yourself! Go to any good DIY or Hardware store and buy a "Sharpening Stone". It should only cost around £3 to £5 maximum ($6 to $10).

Hi,Get a good Mill b*****d File ,and do it yourself. It's not hard,and you will always have sharp tools. If not, go to True Value. They sharpen them there.

Can't add much to what has already been advised. Lawn Mower repairers should be your best bet; apart from DIY but if you're as good as I am at DIY I'd let someone else do it!
