Boston, MA (March 13, 2014) – On March 12, 2014, Dependable Cleaners hosted the grand re-opening of its 320 Quincy Ave. location after a devastating fire that destroyed the store and dry cleaning facility.
Mayor of Quincy Thomas Koch, City Councilor of Quincy Brad L. Croall were on hand to help Dependable Cleaners’ CEO and President Christa Hagearty unzip the brand new store and dry cleaning facility.
The new energy efficient building is 8,400 square feet, which includes a 2,000 square foot laundromat area. It also has GreenEarth cleaning machines, energy efficient T5 and LED lighting and high efficiency boilers. Laundromat customers will feature a card system, larger washers and dryers and free WIFI.
“It has been a long road recovering from the horrible fire that destroyed the original location in July 2012; however the unwavering support we received from the Mayor Thomas Koch and his office as well as our City Councilor Brad L. Croall is what allowed us to survive and thrive in the face of this setback,” said CEO and President Christa Hagearty. “My family, the community, and the fantastic team at Dependable Cleaners have stepped up since day one to help us to recover and for that I will be forever grateful.”
Rather than the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony, the team at Dependable Cleaners created its own giant zipper to unveil the new facility. This is a tradition that was first started by Christa’s father, Don Fawcett Jr., in 1982 at the grand opening of 320 Quincy Avenue location.
