Our grand re-opening on November 19th was a big day for us at Fashion Cleaners. After months of hard work and determination, we were able to unveil our brand new lobby, customer drive through and employee break area at our flag ship location at 30th and Leavenworth. As any of you who have ever gone through a construction project can attest, this project was not without its share of hair-pulling moments, but we made it! We thank all of you for your patience during our time of transition.
Our front lobby area was in great need of a make-over. As Kermit put it, “We couldn’t slap anymore lipstick on this thing.” Our staff is thrilled with the new updated and more comfortable space. This also enabled us to give our amazing sewing and alterations ladies a new work area conveniently located right near the dressing room to assist customers with alterations needs.
Our new front drive through area has a dual purpose – to increase safety and convenience to you, our customers. We can now provide car side assistance so that you don’t even have to get out of your car to pick up or drop off your order. We do have several parking spaces should you need to come inside for alterations. This drive through also provides a safer way to easily merge back into traffic on Leavenworth Street.
One of the best parts of our renovation was providing our staff with a brand new break area. This new area allows everyone to truly take a break and re-charge throughout the day. We have quite a few gourmet chefs in our staff, and they are enjoying the new space and appliances.
We threw a little celebration to kick off the exciting new renovations, and had a pretty great turn out for a party at the dry-cleaners! In addition to customers, friends and associates, we were honored to have Mayor Jim Suttle and Larry Gomez of the Omaha Chamber assist Kermit with a ribbon cutting. Other exciting appearances were Billy Blue Jay and Coach Greg McDermott.
Thank you again to our customers and staff for their patience throughout the renovation process. We hope you enjoy the new lobby and drive through!
