We were driving home from church on a Sunday afternoon about twelve years ago when we noticed the sign anouncing the new Harris Teeter coming to Hwy 41 next to Rivertowne and Dunes West. We immediately dialed the number on the sign and left a message saying that we want to be the tailors and cleaners to this community. They contacted us on Monday, and after a few minutes we agreed that our business would be a great fit for the neighborhood. The rest as they say, is history.
We love being your tailors and eco-friendly cleaners.
