As for the lack of "sophisticated consumers," the recent successful opening of Zaccaro's high-end gourmet grocery indicates that there is at least some demand from that type of consumer in the city. The existing gourmet shops in Eastern Market also attest to that fact, as does the successful Enoteca wine bar on the first floor of the First National building on Campus Martius. In fact, a friend of mine who recently sold his place in Lafayette park (just beat the sub-prime meltdown) had offers from LA and NYC transplants among others. To them, it is natural to want to live in or near the CBD, so there is definitely demand from those types. I wouldn't sell the idea short.
I only use the cleaners for special items so I have no idea about normal prices, but my BF said he pays about $1.40 per shirt. He probably would pay more for the convenience of pick up and delivery though. I would pay more for all natural cleaning, but I don't think he would.

I don't use dry cleaners for shirts and stuff that I can do myself either. That may be where I misunderstood, as I was thinking coats and suits and such, in which case $2.00 is cheap!

Yeah, I think that would be a good price for those items. My BF likes to have his shirts cleaned and pressed as a time saver, I don't think his shirts are actually dry cleaned, just washed and pressed.

Maybe if the OP is following this he/she could clarify.

try downtown ferndale or royal oak. There is just not enough foot traffic or residents in downtown detroit yet. plus the break ins are still pretty high down there.
