Our cleaner of record, Hiawatha Cleaners has closed. In business since 1939, the Covid crisis has taken them down. We could not be more sad. We referred hundreds of customers to them over the last 20 years. They were like family to us and our clients, with excellent staff and owners who had pride in the quality of the work. Small enough to have the time to get to know their customers, inspect the work, and stand behind it. No delivery service but definitely worth the trip. The owners of Hiawatha have been kind enough to bring the owner of the cleaners they think will be able to deliver similar quality. We have been sending work to them and other cleaners and below is a list of cleaners we have tested and recommend.
Jim Fingerman is the owner of 5 locations listed below. His e-mail address is Jim@mypilgrimcleaners.com. Jim has come in and introduced himself to Top Shelf and has been willing to try and fill the shoes left by Hiawatha. So far, so good in our real world check. His Pilgrim Cleaners is NOT a part of the 31 store chain of Pilgrim stores, so do not assume any Pilgrim Cleaners is being recommended. This Pilgrim Cleaners is the main facility for all the shirt and most of the dry cleaning done at his group of stores.
