Save Local Businesses
A full service dry cleaning business for over two decades had to let go 6 out of 8 employees last Friday. “Although social distancing is helpful to slow the spread of coronavirus, it also means that people are staying home and may not be wearing clothes that they would normally have dry cleaned. Unfortunately, our volumes are down by quite a lot.” – said Adam Burton, business owner of the Nextday Dry Cleaning located on 606 N Spokane Street in Post Falls, Idaho. To turn our conversation into a positive direction I asked Adam what makes him happy at this time. To which he immediately replied: “I am happy that my employees will have unemployment benefits to carry them through these difficult times”.
The Nextday Dry Cleaning stays open and is happy to service your needs. “We have put into place some new procedure which we hope will help people feel safe dropping off items including our no contact 24 hour drop box. We also have a drive through for pickups. With everyone home, now is a great time for spring cleaning and all our processes sanitize and clean household items.” – Burton said. I was quite impressed with their new Eco-friendly dry cleaning equipment that they invested in a few months ago.
“Being a third generation dry cleaning operator and having owned this business for over 25 years I have never faced anything like this, just as I’m sure most other small business owners haven’t. My biggest worry is the longevity of small business everywhere... I love being part of this community and serving our customers, some of whom are like family.” – said Burton, family man and father of three young children.
