Customers can be reunited with their beloved garments the same day if they drop them off at Chicago's Discount Dry Cleaner or Kenny the Kleener in the morning on Monday–Saturday. The staff responsible for this quick turnaround has been at it since 1981, dry-cleaning delicate fabrics and laundering more resilient clothing such as knit shirts or hats that double as tea cozies. Besides cleaning clothes, they can alter garments to better fit customers' silhouettes and preserve wedding gowns.
In addition to using traditional dry-cleaning methods, Lake City Cleaners’ laundering outlets set themselves apart with environmentally friendly technology installed at each of their four Chicagoland locations in Lake Forest, Highland Park, Evanston, and Chicago. Lake City Cleaners offers three levels of cleaning: Classic Care for everyday clothing, Fleur de Lis Care for fine items that require hand finishing, as well as Monarch Care, which uses the carbon dioxide-based Solvair system with a biodegradable cleaning solution. Pickup and delivery services are available throughout the North Shore, Gold Coast, Magnificent Mile, and much of the northern suburbs, and the cleaners’ GPS-tracking verifies the time and location of order of pickup and drop-off.
GNC sells a wide variety of supplements (vitamin and mineral and herbal) and other health products (sports nutrition, diet, energy, body care, and more). You're sure to find something right for you, such as Ginkgo biloba capsules or that box of SuperFoods Supreme you wish for every Groundhog Day.
Like many people, Kenneth Geary had a childhood nickname. “Skinnie Piggy.” The moniker was bestowed upon him by his grandmother due to his large appetite and high metabolism. The name has stuck, as Kenneth and co-owner, Monica Rodriguez, have not only dubbed their sweets shop "Skinnie Piggy" but have also incorporated its meaning into the concept of the store. Executive chef Elizabeth McCabe handcrafts a daily menu of freshly-baked pies, poundcakes, and cupcakes, most of which come in Hog (huge), Skinnie (regular), and Piglet (mini) sizes, an innovation that gained praise from ABC7, Chicago Magazine, and Pop Sugar. Amid pink polka dotted walls decorated with local artwork, customers can dispense gourmet treats such as Jelly Belly’s from clear containers, and peruse more than 25 types of nostalgic candies, from Fun Dip to Zotz Fizz. The sweets boutique also caters special occasion parties and business meetings with confectionary bouquets and candy boxes.
