Replacing zip on Vango Diablo 600

I bought this tent 2 weeks ago from preloved and today is the first chance we've had since then to pitch it. The advert said 'new - never been used' and when I spoke to the last selling it, she seemed very genuine and said it had been up in the camping shop but they hadn't pitched it themselves. That seems right, think it was probably an ex-display end of season purchase. The tent pegs have never been used but there are a couple of marks showing wear and tear.

Anyway, the zips on the bedroom compartments (2) are both faulty. On 1 bedroom you can close it so there is only about an inch open, but on the other side there are 2 places where the teeth are misaligned so there is about 50cm that can't be zipped closed.

Does anyone know how much it would cost to replace the zip?

Otherwise the tent is great but feeling a little bit like we've been had (we paid £110).

Any comments welcome.

Perhaps a seamstress / clothes alteration service could do it?
