But are they reliable. That is what the OP is asking. If so, which ones?

In ColeBay opposite The new Hav Auto place , a little further down the street across from Motor World and our friend Vernon Jacobs has one across from the Sol Gas Station on Bush Road. Next to the Beauty Shop also before you get to Auto Depot.

Thanks. Good to know with us being there for 3 weeks I'm sure we'll need it.

You will need a dry cleaner on island?? Honestly, I have never taken anything to SXM that needed to be dry cleaned...

Has nothing to do with dry cleaning but cleaning in general since you asked why it might be needed. Some people use dry cleaners like a laundromat as they can do both.

Huh??? If all you need is clothes laundered and you have a washer and dryer at your unit, then obviously one has no need for a dry cleaner...

Reread my post. Not for me but possibly our guests or someone else. To each their own. Not for anybody to question someone else's needs.

Oy. I have never used a dry cleaner on SXM, nor do I ever plan to. However, I remember seeing one on Cannegeiter Road, near the high end, and one across from the Dinghy Dock location on Airport Road. I think they are both laundries and dry cleaners, but I've never been inside. No idea if they're still open, or how reliable they are. Just a few things dragged out of the memory bank observation files.

I have some nice cotton polo shirts that I always dry clean instead of laundering. Had them for a while and they are like brand new. That’s why I was asking the question.

Thanks.

The dry cleaner across from Dinghy Dock is Jake's. They do very good work, but will not do "one item only". If you get shirts with heavy starch, you can stand them up in the corner.

My bad, but I thought I saw the sign on a recent trip. Is the sign still there?
