This review and giveaway is sponsored by CD One Price Cleaners. I received a gift card for purposes of review, but all opinions in this post are my own.
So, we’ve driven by this CD One Price Cleaners a million times but never gone in. I work from home, so don’t have a lot of need for dry cleaning or laundering, lol. (Yeah, sometimes I even wear yoga pants… on days I don’t even have yoga! shhh) MashupDad, however, is somewhat fancier in his work requirements than I, so duly took a batch of his clothes over to our local CD One Price Cleaners earlier this week. We visited the Lombard location, but they have 30 Chicago area stores to choose from.
Now, MashupDad was of course most impressed with the free lollipops and coffee at CD One Price Cleaners (and check out the hanger recycling — brilliant!).
Me, I’m impressed that you can sign up for alerts and get an email when your dry cleaning is ready, because nothing’s more annoying than a wasted trip. Plus: Drop off before 10 AM, and you can pick up after 5 PM that same day. Super handy when you have an occasion coming up and realize last minute that you need to have something cleaned.
And, they even gave him this handy bag to bring in his cleaning next time — which should be more useful than the “crumpled heap of clothes on top of the dresser” method he’s employed in the past.
I’m also pleased with the “per item” pricing. I’ve never understood why women’s clothes tend to cost more at the cleaners, but at CD One Price Cleaners, they live up to their name. Current pricing: Any dry cleaned garment is just $2.79 (doesn’t matter if it is a women’s silk shirt or a men’s winter coat), and each laundered shirt is just $1.49. I do wish that they were open on Sundays, since that is a typical errand day here, but they’re open early enough on weekdays that it is not a problem to drop off before work.
