In the late 1930s, Andy Dellecave founded Mercury Sporting Goods, a neighborhood shop specializing in men’s tailored clothing and sportswear. After a couple decades helping gentlemen find the perfect fit for their blazers, trousers, or space suits, Andy noticed a new calling: helping them keep their new duds clean. In 1955, he moved Mercury to the freshly erected Keyser Oak Shopping Center and renamed it Mercury One-Hour Cleaners, complementing his tailoring services with full-service dry cleaning. Now a Scranton institution as well, Mercury has since opened a second location. It’s also been passed down to Andy’s sons, John and Jim, who continue a legacy that today includes same-day dry cleaning, leather and suede cleaning, and expert tailoring and alterations.
While the bristles of automated car washes may make some drivers uneasy, customers of Wash and Roll Carwash need not fear. Instead of a vestibule outfitted with steel floors and metal rails, Wash and Roll uses an open wash bay equipped with ultrasonic sensors, soft foam brushes, and touch-free, oscillating nozzles that eliminate dirt and grime without harming exteriors. A splash of detergent instantly loosens stuck-on muck, allowing the spot-free rinse?s purified water to effortlessly wash away debris without the need for rough scrubbing or amateur witchcraft. Three pigments of color polish and a coating of clear-coat polish enhance and protect paint before a powerful dryer finishes the job without leaving behind spots or excess water. After the wash, drivers can retreat to the onsite convenience store for a snack. Wash and Roll guarantees customer satisfaction, or the next wash is on the house.

Innovative Dry Cleaning’s experienced technicians restore garments to store-fresh conditions with eco-friendly, biodegradable solvents that extract stains in clothing of all cuts and sizes. Dapper two-piece suits, leather jackets, and suede swim trunks take big gulps of fresh air as they cycle through a cleaning treatment that shields them from the style-suffocating effects of water. Technicians watch over the process with discriminating eyes, making sure that buttons remain in place and collars retain their fizzy pop before sliding cleaned vestments into recyclable garment bags. A complimentary pickup and delivery service shuttles garments to and from homes twice a week, saving customers the embarrassment of wearing their sole remaining toga to the store.
