USEFUL NOTES FOR CUSTOMERS WHO 'COMMUTE' INTO DOWNTOWN NEW ORLEANS
• RUSH HOUR:
This main plant's central metro location allows many customers who commute into
downtown New Orleans to beat commute rush hour traffic as this location has
several major streets and highways that also allow you still get downtown.
• LUNCH HOUR:
This location is also close enough to work where customers can pickup and
dropoff during their lunch hour or break; of which, the total number of customer drop off/pickup are
typically 1 to 4 times a month anyway. (Locations in the suburbs, such as our Metairie location,
would be more time consuming to travel to during the lunch
DROP OFF AND PICKUP DELIVERY SERVICE - STATUS / WORKAROUND
• Because of Hurricane Katrina and being closed for almost 7 years, we don't have a drop and
delivery service, at least not yet. However, we ask that you should take into account our central
location and try visiting our main plant location a couple of times to see if our location is not to
inconvenient to add
to your routine. Most customers visit a dry cleaner from 1 to 4 times a month
anyway, so it's not really a daily trip to add to your commute.
