Pressed Dry Cleaners in Wichita Falls to close Southwest Parkway location

Due to an increased demand for pickup/delivery and decrease in need for storefront service, Pressed Dry Cleaners says it will close one of its Wichita Falls’ locations.

After 35 years of service, Pressed on Southwest Parkway (formerly Comet Cleaners) will be closing Dec. 22.

All the employees from this location will be transferring to the Fairway store.

Pressed owner Brian Hooker said since launching their application for free dry-cleaning pickup and delivery, there has been a decreased demand for multiple stores in the city.

“The dry-cleaning industry has always been service-oriented, but now with the advanced technology that our free pickup and delivery service app offers, the customers don’t even have to leave their homes," Hooker said.

"Like Amazon has changed consumer shopping habits, we are changing your dry-cleaning habits.

lets face it : English is a stupid language !?

There is no egg in the eggplant, no ham in the hamburger and neither
Pine nor apple in the pineapple. English muffins were not invented in
England, French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted.
