Dirty clothes are traditionally worn by grungy rock stars, mystical imaginary vagabonds, and royals pretending to be “regular people" to get an understanding of life outside castle walls. Don't fit into one of these categories with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of dry-cleaning services at Colvin Cleaners in Kenmore.
Sprucing up Buffalo’s threads since 1931, today’s Colvin Cleaners uses environmentally friendly methods to expertly degrime garments and household items. An odorless, nontoxic GreenEarth solution is utilized to imbue fabrics with brilliant freshness, and a wide range of available services keeps various accouterments in tip-top shape. With a quick trip to the shop, patrons can enlist the staff to launder shirts and blouses ($2.59–$2.79), refresh sport coats and blazers ($7.37), carefully maintain dresses ($12.16–$13.13), and ensure trousers and slacks ($6.13–$6.62) shine radiantly like a child’s smile liberated from the oppressive crustiness of peanut-butter-and-ketchup lips.
Colvin Cleaners is located in Kenmore, but they offer free pickup and delivery for garment cleaning right to their customers' front doors. Their service area includes Amherst, Buffalo, downtown Buffalo, Clarence, East Amherst, Getzville, Grand Island, Kenmore, Lancaster, Lewiston, North Buffalo, Orchard Park, Snyder, Tonawanda, and Williamsville. Colvin’s staff can also pick up and return window treatments and will rehang and steam dress them to perfection, much to the chagrin of vain tablecloths. Colvin’s ozone room tackles fabrics with fire or water damage and efficiently extracts deep-seated odors and stains.
The business also operates an on-site alterations department complete with five full-time tailors and two dressing rooms for measurements and fittings. The full-service staff can generally have garments ready by the next day, but clients seeking same-day service can request it for no extra cost. When not dry cleaning and tailoring, Colvin Cleaners is working on their two charitable organizations Gowns 4 Prom and Coats 4 Kids.
