Clothes do more than keep bodies looking stylish—they protect skin against harsh winds, brutally cold temperatures, and garish reactions to full-body Elmer Fudd tattoos. Treat threaded body shields with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $30 worth of dry cleaning and alterations from Express Cleaners. This Groupon is valid at the following locations: 605 W. 158th St., 2714 8th Ave., 458 Lenox Ave., 1787 Lexington Ave., or 2094A 8th Ave.
Express Cleaners’ customer-focused garment gurus spruce and mend chassis coverings with an array of dry-cleaning and alteration services. With same-day service, time-pressed customers can unload sullied shirts ($3.25–$4.99), blouses ($3.25–$4.99), two-piece suits ($8.50–$10.99), and other articles by 9 a.m., and then return to pick them up on the same day by 5 p.m.
Alternatively, clients can elect free pickup and delivery service to avoid traffic or tempestuous carrier pigeons, with first-time customers eligible to receive a complimentary laundry satchel to transport their garb. Beyond basic spiffenings, Express Cleaners' expert tailors can also hem and taper a variety of items, including ill-fitting pants that have been inhibiting smooth hop-scotching for far too long (hem $8–$10, taper $10–$12).
Prices vary by location.
