Opened on Independence Day, 2003, the National Constitution Center is more than a museum: it's an educational headquarters, a historical archive, and a town hall that functions on a national scale. Besides housing exhibits and historic artifacts, the museum is home to a national forum?it's hosted Democratic primary debates, town hall meetings on the campaign trail, and pivotal presidential speeches.
White delivery vans scrawled with purple and teal lettering roll into driveways twice a week, hauling dirty clothes away and returning them clean and fresh. The magic happens at Four Seasons's Squirrel Hill headquarters, where a second-generation owner helms an array of dry and water-based cleaning services. He and his cleaning team inspect each piece to single out stains before subjecting them to a dry-cleaning machine with organic-based fluid and other eco-friendly techniques. During their specialty Execu-Shirt regimen, techs hand-scrub collars and cuffs, replace missing buttons, and quiz them on Fortune 500 companies before ironing and folding or hanging them. They also tailor ripped seams and sagging hemlines, store furs in a temperature-controlled vault, and preserve wedding gowns with a museum-style, acid-free protection process.

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.
