Why Sheldon?

There are a number of dry cleaners operating in and around West Michigan. So why choose Sheldon?

Local and Family Owned.

Louie and Paul Cares are proud to carry on the legacy of their father, George, who opened the first Sheldon Cleaners in 1949. (Read more about our history here.) The Cares brothers support the local economy by employing nearly 200 people around Grand Rapids, Holland and Kalamazoo. They also give back to the community, donating funds and services to causes that improve the quality of life throughout West Michigan.

A Tradition of Clean and Commitment to Green.

There's no clean like a Sheldon clean for generations of West Michigan families – as years of "Best Dry Cleaner" awards from local publications will attest. We're the first to implement new dry cleaning and laundry technologies, always seeking to deliver even more efficiency, reliability and value. Sheldon is West Michigan's first organic dry cleaner. Our ecotouch system uses an all organic "green" biodegradable solvent that is easy on the environment, as well as our customers. Plus, our Laundry Room Cafe utilizes high-speed washers and dryers that minimize water and energy use.

Individuals entrust us with their formal wear, business attire, casual clothes and household bedding. Schools engage us to keep their athletic, band and choir uniforms looking their best. Hospitality providers rely on us to clean everything from towels to tablecloths. With the debut of our Laundry Room Cafe, we've also become a valued resource for college students, apartment dwellers and to everyone in-between.
