lapels dry cleaningLapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Massachusetts, recently announced a 16-store development agreement with Shambho, LLC to bring the Future of Dry Cleaning to the greater Detroit area. “We’re extremely excited about opening in Detroit as it represents Lapels Dry Cleaning’s first location in Michigan,” said a spokesperson for Shambho, LLC, a Detroit-based development firm that is also a multi-unit franchisee of Great Clips hair salons in the area. “Lapels, with its green initiative, truly represents the future of dry cleaning, and we think the response from people in greater Detroit will be tremendous.”

The first Detroit area store is slated to open in late first quarter, early second quarter of 2015. “We’re delighted to sign this agreement with Shambho, LLC as it means more than bringing an environmentally friendlier way to dry clean clothes to the area. It also means jobs,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “We expect to add 100 to 200 jobs to the greater Detroit area as we build our hub & spokes networks.”

Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past dozen years. Part of that effort includes a partnership agreement with GreenEarth®, the dry cleaning industry’s only non-toxic cleaning alternative, which will be used in its newer plant locations like Lapels Dry Cleaning of Tupelo. Using these kinds of solutions and the latest technology in equipment, Lapels is one of the few dry cleaners able to boast that there is no hazardous waste in their process. “We are delighted to bring Lapels’ standard of high quality dry cleaning and superior customer service to Tupelo,” said Leah Richardson, who along with her husband Martin, own and operate Lapels Dry Cleaning of Tupelo. “Lapels Dry Cleaning has been very well received at the other Mississippi location in New Albany and we’re confident of a similar result here in Tupelo.” Lapels Dry Cleaning of Tupelo is set to open on April 25, 2015 and a grand opening celebration is planned for May 30, 2015.
