Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT New Canaan Cleaners!
Three questions with founders of New Canaan Cleaners in New Canaan.
Why did you start your business?
We started our business over 3 decades ago to help keep the town of New Canaan looking their sharpest at all times. Since then, New Canaan Cleaners has become a staple in the town of New Canaan and we are ecstatic to continue to serve the community's needs. Whether you have a big business meeting, a family holiday, need something altered, or even a wedding we are here to help our community in any way we can. We are a small family business that treats all their customers like family and we are always looking to add new members into that family!
What is your best-selling product/service?
At New Canaan Cleaners we pride ourselves on superior service and convenience. We offer a wide range of dry cleaning and laundry services but our most popular option is our pick-up and delivery service. We understand the everyday person is extremely busy so we try to make it as easy as possible by coming to the customer instead. You just leave your clothes outside on your specific day and it comes back crisp and cleans a few days later. Doesn't get much easier than that!
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
The last year has been difficult for all small businesses in the community. Our business has had to think of ways to be creative during these difficult times especially since our business relies on people going into the office and many people are still at home. We recently moved our location and are proud to now offer a drive-thru service for our customers. With health and safety in mind, this allows our customers to have a contactless experience. When you drive up to the window, give our staff your information and pull forward and our staff will place your items right into your car. We are trying to make the customer's experience as easy and seamless as possible as we know everyone has a lot going on these days. If we all just continue to support our local small businesses in the area we can all make it through this together!
Founders of New Canaan Cleaners would like to nominate Zumbach’s Coffee to participate next!
