How long have you been doing business in Roxborough?
Stanton Custom Cleaner’s has been servicing the Roxborough neighborhood since the early 1960’s. The Stanton family originally had one location in Manayunk. My brother-in-law purchased the business 30 years ago and then later we opened this location in Roxborough.
Why did your family choose Roxborough?
In order to better service many of our customers we opened a store on Ridge Avenue in 1995. The original building and plant which is still on Manayunk Avenue functions as our warehouse and cleaning facility. Today, we serve customers from Germantown, Mt. Airy, Chestnut Hill, Andorra East Falls as well as Roxborough/Manayunk.
How long have you been working as a dry cleaner?
My brother-in-law began as a presser after he moved to the U.S. from Armenia in the 1980's. After I came over, I began working in the dry cleaning business in 2000. Soon after, through customer referrals the business began to grow. Today, this location cleans between 500 and 700 shirts per week.
Why dry cleaning?
With dry cleaning we use special solutions to keep the garments fresh, clean and original. Regular washing in water can damage or hurt certain types of fabrics.
What types of services do you offer?
We provide dry cleaning, laundry as well as alterations and professional tailoring. If someone has an old suit or gown we will size it, clean it and press it ready to wear.
How does Stanton stand out from other dry cleaners?
The quality of our work for our customers is the number one priority. We will always work with the customer until they are 100% satisfied. We also offer the best prices in town.
