Riverton Dry Cleaners to re-open on Feb. 18th due to community need

The dearth of a dry cleaning business in the community after the abrupt closure of American Dry Cleaners in December is about to be end. Riverton Cleaners owner Kelly Coleman Albright told this morning that she will re-open her dry cleaning business on February 18th. The dry cleaners, and a laundromat next door, are co-located at 470 East Pershing. "There has been such an outcry, I decided to step forward and fill the need. We'll add some jobs and benefit the community in several ways," she said. "I am still looking for some pressers and we're in the midst of training new employees." An earlier announcement that a Casper Martinizing business would offer drop-off service here fizzled when they decided not to open a storefront. The Riverton Cleaners closed on July 1, 2014, but the equipment was retained which will allow the start-up to move quickly. In an earlier interview, Albright said she had trouble finding employees for the cleaners back then and closed 19 months ago due to that lack of labor. "We'll return as a full-service dry cleaner," she said. Her only fear upon reopening? "I hope everyone doesn't come in all at once and we are buried in clothes!" *Feature Photo above: Jamie Mellor is pictured at the Riverton Cleaners on Monday morning with finished "drop-off" laundry.
