Like sleeping through an entire night or making a Thanksgiving turkey for lunch, laundry is a necessary but often time-consuming chore. Free up a few hours with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pick-up and drop-off laundry service from Skokie Valley Laundry and Cleaners, valid for their locations in Bannockburn and Highwood. The pick-up and drop-off service area extends north to Waukegan, west to Long Grove and Lake Zurich, and south to the south side of Chicago.
For almost a half-century, the industrious staff at Skokie Valley Laundry and Cleaners has excavated stains and grime from garments and various household items. An environmentally friendly dry-cleaning process unearths soil from apparel, and each location boasts an on-site seamstress who can, upon request, repair rips and tears sustained during Incredible Hulk impersonations. The cleaning crew welcomes household items such as draperies, rugs, and pillows, and table and bed linens receive a careful hand-finish with each cleanse. Executive shirts also entail a special finishing process, which includes embroidering resumes inside the sleeve for impromptu job interviews. A fleet of drivers navigates the pick-up and drop-off schedule, and doorstep service is available for those who are unable to greet drivers personally.
