We are a full service dry cleaning operation with Pick-up and Delivery (Due to the high cost of fuel there is an automatic $.75 fuel surcharge per order.) We offer the added convenience of alterations, repairs, shoe, luggage, handbag repairs.

We also provide leather and suede cleaning. As is common in the industry all of the leather, suede and shoe repair work is performed by a specialty cleaning plant or in the case of shoes a high-quality cobbler. Costs for leather and suede are substantially higher than dry cleaning. We add a small $5.00 service fee to all shoe repairs (per pair) for the convenience of the service. Under no circumstances do we do estimates for shoe repair because of our increased expense of this particular service. The published prices for leather, suede and shoe repair may not be accurate as these specialty items are subject to change without prior notice. We cannpt be responsible for the end result of leather, suede and shoes.

Our quality service is guaranteed; if by some chance an item is not cleaned to your utmost satisfaction, we will redo it. If you are aware of any stains or repairs needed before pick-up, place a note inside your personalized garment bag.

Please keep in mind that not all stains can be removed, no matter what chemical process is applied. Fabric type, stain type and the duration of the stain may impact the success of removal. If possible, letting us know the cause of the stain, may assist in promoting its elimination. On occasion a shirt button will crack in the process; we will be more than happy to make the repair for free. Unless otherwise instructed, any detected repairs are automatically completed up to a maximum charge of $15.00.

Payment: We have a $10 minimum order and accept all major credit cards. Please call your account manager immediately upon your first pick-up to provide your payment information.
