Much like big family dinners, freshly laundered clothes are comforting, make moms happy, and usually play witness to awkward jokes and red-wine spills within their first five minutes. Help your garments rebound with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of laundry and dry-cleaning services at VIP Cleaners. VIP Cleaners is a locally owned, full-service laundry business that has been tackling barbecue-stained shirts and dirt-smeared dresses for 11 years. With a resume that includes dignifying the duds used in the Kentucky Center for the Arts' productions of The Lion King and Wicked, VIP has proven its aptitude for refreshing items of every complexity, from basic shirts ($1.95) and coats (up to $12) to dream-laden comforters ($25). The business also takes care of alterations, although unlike its dry-cleaning and laundering services, alterations are handled off site.
VIP Cleaners’ first location opened in 1992. Since then the operation has expanded to a handful of locations, where staff members clean everything from police, firefighter, and military uniforms to suits, dresses, and wedding gowns. The shops also offer leather dying, suede cleaning, and alteration services.
