Wishing everyone a very 🎅 Merry Christmas 🎄& a 🎉 Happy New Year 🥂 !!
Been doing business there for a long time. Spend 30.00 - 40.00 per week. No More. I took a shirt there that had dime size stain, ask them to see if they could get it, no need to wash. I picked it up today and was charged 7.00. They lost 2 pair of my pants a while back. There are other cleaners in the area.

[12/31/20]   REFLECTIONS on Y2020

Well it surely has been a year of uncertainty, and 2020 has definitely brought about change. It is difficult to find many good things to say about this year but if we look hard enough there are a few bright spots.
In May of 2019, the employees of this fine company entered into an agreement to purchase the stock held by the 4th generation of the Brown/Smith family, founders of Swannanoa Cleaners through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). 10 months later we were faced with the unprecedented effects of COVID-19. Our dedicated team sat down daily and formulated a plan. This changed, often day to day, but the two things that we knew we had to do were to cut costs and eliminate the use of perchloroethylene (perc).
Our first order of business was to temporarily lay off some very fine people. That really hurt. Next, we discontinued cleaning operations in all our plants which used perc and permanently closed our locations in Arden and in the Reynolds community. As the weeks and months drug on, we came to realize this restructuring plan would work!
Through the spring and summer, necessary equipment was moved to our Coxe Ave location and, as volume increased, we were able to bring back some of our dedicated staff. As our community slowly returns to some sense of normalcy, we hope to be able to rehire a few more members of our team as we continue to serve this beautiful City as we now have for 120 years.
Oh, as to those hard-to-find bright spots… we now operate perc free while continuing to offer professional dry cleaning as well as “wet cleaning” and laundry. We have redoubled our recycling efforts through close monitoring of our solvent, waste cardboard, plastic bags, and wire hangers. Our consolidated operations have improved quality control, reduced costs, and increased wages without sacrificing delivery times. We are confident that, as painful as it was, 2020 will be recognized as a positive turning point in the life of our business.
Another bright spot was the annual coat drive we assist with. In partnership with the Western Carolina Rescue Ministry, we have helped collect and clean donated winter wear for the past 20 years! We are always humbled by the generosity and positive response from our customers and community to help others during the annual Coats for the Cold drive. This year we cleaned over 600 items!
Thank you all for your patience, understanding and patronage. We are confident these changes will propel us into this new decade.
Happy New Year!

Our team of experts did a beautiful job on this sweater. We posted earlier that the manufacturers care instructions left us scratching our heads for a minute or two.

Lately care labels have been providing a smile during our busy days but we can't say they are necessarily always very helpful (at least not from a cleanability perspective).
