Mike and Carla Lane - JacksonvilleLapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Massachusetts, will open its second location in the state of Florida on September 20 at 1075 Oakleaf Plantation Parkway, Orange Park, FL. Owned by Mike and Carla Lane, Lapels Dry Cleaning of Orange Park represents the second of seven locations the couple plans on opening in the greater Jacksonville area.

Hours for the store will be Monday through Friday, 7 am to 7 pm; Saturday 8 am to 5 pm; and Sunday, 12 pm to 3 pm. A Grand Opening is planned for October 11.

“We’re extremely pleased to bring the future of dry cleaning to Orange Park,” said Mike Lane. “The initial response from customers at our first store, Lapels Dry Cleaning of Fleming Island, has been incredibly favorable and we anticipate a similar reaction from the people of Orange Park.”

Lapels Dry Cleaning of Orange Park uses GreenEarth Cleaning Solution to clean garments. GreenEarth represents the dry cleaning industry’s only non-toxic cleaning alternative. GreenEarth silicone’s unique, non-aggressive cleaning solution enables it to penetrate fabrics and remove soils without chemically interfering with the textile fibers themselves, helping to maintain their “like-new” look and feel.

Using the latest technology in equipment, along with the GreenEarth cleaning solution, Lapels is one of the few dry cleaners in Florida to be able to boast that there is no hazardous waste in their process.

Beyond the environmentally friendly cleaning process is Lapels Dry Cleaning’s customer service. Lapels customers are greeted to a warm and inviting reception area, with friendly customer service representatives, and alteration services.

Lapels offers its customers Automatic Rewards earning them credit towards free dry cleaning for every dollar they spend, Loyalty Programs, a VIP Program which eliminates the need to wait in line and the use of a 24 Hour Drop Off Service. Same day service is also available with pick-up after 5 pm.

“Beyond bringing an environmentally friendlier way to dry clean clothes to the area, the new Lapels Dry Cleaning stores are bringing jobs,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “We expect to add a total of almost 50 jobs to the greater Jacksonville area once Mike and Carla open all seven locations.”
