Last Thursday, the Jackson Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for West Jackson’s newest business–Express Cleaners. Located on the ground floor of One University Place, Express Cleaners is the first tenant to open in the new development. Other businesses slated to open in One University Place include an Art Gallery and an Internet Cafe.
So why did Express Cleaners choose to locate in West Jackson? Managing Partner, Kenneth O’Quinn, says that a large part of the decision was due to the consistent growth of Jackson State University’s campus over the years.
While Express Cleaners is a drop-off site for laundry (meaning the actual cleaning isn’t done on site), the business promises that items in by 9:00 a.m. will by ready by 5:00 p.m. Also, if you can’t stand doing laundry, they offer a “Fluff & Fold” special in which you can bring your loads of dirty clothes to Express Cleaners, and they will wash, dry, and neatly fold the clothes for you (P.S.: placing the clothes in your dresser drawers is still up to you!). The cost for this service $2.50 per pound.
So if you’re looking to get your clothes smelling and looking fresh, feel free to give Express Cleaners a try. They are located near the corner of Dalton St. and John R. Lynch Street, across from the JSU Student Center (the business actually fronts Dalton St).
