  • In 1995 Jim Massey’s purchased a vacant warehouse located at 531 E. South Street. The 50,000 sq. ft. warehouse was renovated to accommodate a dry cleaning/laundry plant, a tuxedo warehouse, and its corporate offices.

  • Due to changing lifestyles and the shrinking dry cleaning market on a national scale, we closed or sold 29 locations in a 36 month period.
  • We have committed to growing same store sales by focusing all of our resources and time to improve service and quality. This is being accomplished by purchasing better equipment, computers, and investing in better people.
