City Cleaners moving to U.S. 160 location
City Cleaners will be moving to its new location at 21760 U.S. Highway 160, the old Franciscos used car lot, from Friday to Aug. 28.
Tom Goldenberg, who co-owns City Cleaners with his wife, Fabiola Goldenberg, said the cleaners will be closed during the move, but people still will be able to pick up clothes during the move once all the clothes are moved to the new location and a computerized inventory-tracking system is in place.
City Cleaners expects to resume dry cleaning on Aug. 28 if the move goes as scheduled.
Its a pretty complex job. Some of the equipment weighs thousands of pounds, and its a major plumbing job to rehook everything, Tom Goldenberg said.
