The Parkway Difference
Since our founding in 1926, we have focused on providing outstanding fabric care. Our current staff of 30 employees brings over 250 years of combined cleaning, restoration, and alteration experience to every item we service.
Parkway’s dedicated management team is available almost every day of the week:
Jon Simon Owner/President
Paul Burns General Manager
Carla Thomas Customer Service Manager
Joy Applewhite Customer Service Manager
Numerous awards and recognition
have made us the preferred cleaner for such retailers as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Versace, Chanel, and Hugo Boss. Parkway is the only area recipient of the distinguished America’s Best Cleaners Award and Washingtonian Magazine recently named us Best Washington Metro Drycleaner.
Extraordinary hand finishing by our highly trained staff
Everything we care for will be hand ironed, hems will be rolled, lapels softly finished, and all garments and household treasures undergo three levels of extensive inspection before they are completed.
and mild organic cleaning agents have been selected to more gently clean clothes, thereby preserving and often extending the life of one’s garments as well as the environment.
In a word, we’re “fussy” about the way we treat our customer’s possessions.
We even went as far as designing our own method to protect delicate and unique buttons, and have sold our design to dry cleaners in Europe and Canada.
When we return a garment
it will always be ready to wear. All cleaning tags are removed from clothes — no more broken nails or ruined manicures from de-tagging! And we routinely give special attention to such items as loose and missing buttons, hooks, eyes, cuffs, zippers, and threads, as well as to falling hems and loose shoulder pads.
Pickup and Delivery
is offered to all clients within Parkway’s current Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC service area.
