Lapels Cleaners Opens New Location in North Carolina
CARY, N.C. — Lapels Cleaners, recently announced the opening of Lapels Cleaners of Cary, NC. The location had previously been Mee Cleaners. Jay Singh is the new owner of the drycleaning plant and store.
“We are delighted to bring the Lapels Cleaners experience to Mee Cleaners customers and people who live and work in the greater Cary area,” says Singh. “At Lapels, we use a sustainable, non-toxic method for dry cleaning clothes. Subsequently, clothes feel better when you wear them and last longer.”
Singh, who owns and operates a skin care salon with his wife Karinda, has long wanted to bring a drycleaning store to Cary to better serve the growing number of companies in the area — including such familiar names as SAAS, Google, Nike and others.
“With SAAS, Google, Nike and a number of other well-known businesses opening offices in the area, we saw a real opportunity here,” said Singh. “The most compelling part was being able to convert an existing dry cleaner with an established customer base to Lapels Cleaners stores so we would have immediate cash flow and wouldn’t have to build a market from scratch.”
Added Singh, “Lapels also has a special way of doing things, both from our environmentally friendly way of cleaning clothes to customer service. It’s an experience that our customers will love.” said Singh.
Lapels Cleaners of Cary opened officially in April 2023 and is planning a grand opening event later this spring.
