    Default Where do you dry-clean?

    I just phoned a few places and got some prices. Shirts and laundered and pressed, pants are dry cleaned. Feel free to add your place, or post a review. I just did a wardrobe refresh, and now all my pants are dry-clean only. For the extra $20 every 2 weeks, figure the shirt service is worth it now I'm going anyways.

    Snow White Cleaners (26 Ave NE)
    $2.00
    $5.00
    (Google reviews say they are messy but do good work, will give them a try this week)

    Ritz Dry Cleaners Rundle
    $2.20 shirts
    $5.50 pants

    Master Cleaners Rundle
    $2.75 shirts
    $6.50 pants

    Saigon Cleaners (Memorial SE)
    $3.00
    $6.00

    Trans Canada Cleaners
    $2.99 shirts
    $7.95 pants

    Gillette's Fabricare (16ave/68street)
    $3.09
    $8.49

    Tower cleaners Gulf Canada

    I take mine to Trans Canada, but I love the idea of this thread. My dry cleaning bill is one of my biggest expenses right now

    Why don't you invest in Dryel?

    Awesome for home dry-cleaning.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Hey guys,

    I take my stuff to Care Cleaners in Sunridge Mall. They are one of the pricier places in town but imo their quality is second to none. They do also run groupon/living social deals which helps out as well!

    Pants are $9.75

    Shirts are $3.50

    Hey guys, maybe pick up an entertainment book.

    Care Cleaners
    Avanti Cleaners
    Royal Cleaners
    Dalhousie Fine Dry Cleaning

    Multiple locations and each of the above company has a cut out for 25-30% off for each month of the year.

    Could add up to significant savings!

    Well I got a lot of my stuff back from Snow White, I had pants cleaned, shirts cleaned, and a bunch of my 'fat' dress shirts taken in. Google reviews were right, they are messy but the shirts all came out cleaned and pressed, and the shirts were taken in for $12ea and fit great. Only issue was it took them a day longer than they said to complete the alterations.

    I'm going to keep using them.

    I go to Fabric Care, right downtown on 5th Ave and 8th St. beside Sushi Hiro.

    Shirts $2.50
    Pants $6.50 (I think)

    The owners are awesome. The lady working there is really nice and has an amazing memory LOL.
    You have a couple of photos that are great... you must be very good at photoshop!

    I second this, I have never had any issues with them. Always on time and quality is awesome. The only place I trust in town and the only place I take my clothes

    any recommended place in the NW?

    I usually use Tuscany Dry Cleaner (I am in Tuscany), but I'd love to try some cheaper, mom&pop shops in the NW.

    Dryel sounds interesting, but too good to be true. Anyone else use it?

    You my friend...are a fucking hero.

    I've been going to Tower Cleaners in Quarry Park because I live in that area. Prices went up, so shirts and pants are ridiculous now...i'll get prices tomorrow.

    Been also going to budget cleaners in between Paul's Pizza and Ichi Rock [Ra:Ku] on 6th ave and 8st SW. Budget cleaners....man, what a shit shack/show. Lost my dry cleaning, ripped my pants and screwed all my collars on my shirts. Also the short and fat lebanese guy that works there....horrible!!! Dude has a bad temper. I learned that after I complained that my dry cleaning was lost and damaged.

    Anyways, i'll try your suggestion out Clem - thanks

    Sushi on me next time!!!

    Hmm I have no idea. They're probably on holidays... Not even the crazy convenience store in our building is open this week.
