I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to cover the subject of Dry Cleaning Fun in the ‘Burbs. I think this is likely a crucial service for us all. So once again, I polled my fabulous friends about their favorite local dry cleaners, and here’s what they said:
Ann Cleaners & Tailors, 338 Weston Road, Wellesley – I love Heather’s feedback on her favorite dry cleaner. She reports, “We use Ann’s Dry Cleaning in the Fells Market Place area in Wellesley. We’ve gone there forever and love the little pick me up when Ann is the one at the desk. She always greets everyone with ‘Hello Beautiful’ and asks ‘How do you stay so young?’ At this age, you take every compliment you can get. Plus, she does quick alterations.”
Anton’s Cleaners, 277 Linden Street, Wellesley (pictured above) – four of my friends, Landis, Patty, Linda and Amanda, use Anton’s. Landis says, “I have used them since I lived in Wellesley [she has moved to Weston in the meantime]. I love that they keep my credit card on file and that I don’t have to pay in person.” Patty says that she finds Anton’s to be “nice and reliable,” and Linda and Amanda say they love Anton’s home delivery option.
Chinney’s Alterations and Cleaners, 301 Boston Post Road, Wayland – Kate uses this local dry cleaner. Of note, Chinney’s uses “organic, environmentally-friendly solvents.”
Mayfair Cleaners, 51 Washington Street, Wellesley (pictured here) – Virginia says the reason she uses Mayfair is because she “goes to Four Seasons for nails,” which is just next door.
Personal Cleaners and Tailors, 596 Boston Post Road, Weston (pictured below) – Madelaine remarks, “They are very nice and professional, and it is right in town.” Kathia also uses Personal Cleaners as she likes its “Ecological drycleaning [option], which is non-toxic and harmless to the environment, and as such is becoming increasingly popular among consumers worldwide.”
Tony the Tailor, 21 Washington Street, Wellesley – Yours truly, a.k.a. me, has used Tony the Tailor since I moved to my current house 11 years ago. It’s so close to my home, plus they do alterations. Parking can be difficult, however, especially given all of the stores, restaurants and businesses in the area. Just cash and checks are accepted; no credit cards.
I must admit that I learned quite a bit from this blog. First, I didn’t know about the “green” option that several dry cleaners provide. It makes sense given the world in which we live today. And I was interested to see that most dry cleaners accept credit cards, making it a little easier for consumers. Finally, I was surprised that no one mentioned Zoots as there are several locations in the area, and I tend to see the purple “Zoots” bags on many doorways during my frequent driving journeys through the streets of Weston, Wellesley, Wayland and the surrounding towns.
What are your thoughts? Is your favorite dry cleaner on the list above or do you use another company/service? And what makes your dry cleaner special to you? I can’t wait to hear….
