So there's a highly specific question for you. Chapel Hillians/Carrboro-ites, to whom do you entrust your dry cleaning, dress shirts, etc?

I have been visiting Raleigh frequently on business and have used Hilker's there (and been happy with them.) It's a little far to drive to get a suit pressed, though.

I've found a bunch in online directories, but not a ton of feedback about them (yet).

There are plenty of dry cleaners in CH but I never use them as I never buy dry clean only clothes and my husband hasn't needed to send his shirts out since he started buying wrinkle free ones. I can't remember the last time he wore a suit now that his company allows business casual.

Jdatlas, thanks - I dream of "business casual". On the days I work from home I don't even shave :-) but much of the rest of the time I'm in a suit.

recently had my husbands suit dry cleaned at the cleaners in the strip mall on 54 by the bowling alley - they were nice, suit was clean and not too expensive - hope that helps!

Default White Star on Ninth St. in Durham

for my shirts. They do their work on the premises rather than send them out and they've been there since...forever. When I ocassionally need dry cleaning I go to the $2.17 per piece place in that little shopping center next to Homestead Rd.

It's hit or miss in Chapel Hill. We've tried 5 or 6 different places to get shirts done.

There are a few "discount" dry cleaner/shirt laundry places around, but my experience with them has been spotty - they don't do a great job pressing shirts, and they seem prone to damaging them.

Our preference had been to use a place that picked up and delivered. Cleaner World ran a service for a while out of Apex that covered CH, but they dropped it. We started with a second place after that, whose name escapes me, but they dropped the service when gas prices went up.

Cleaner World has returned to Chapel Hill by buying a local outfit a few months ago. In general, they do a good job, but they do not do the work on-site in CH - so everything is trucked off and it takes 2 days instead of one.

We've tried a few places and are currently using A Cleaner World (the one in Chatham Downs) and haven't had any problems. I recently dropped off my suit there one evening and it was ready the next day.

When we lived in Chapel Hill many years ago we used Carolina Cleaners and were happy with them, although I can't say what they are like now. We have yet to find a place with the kind of service we used to get before we moved.

Well, I'm no expert, but when I worked at UNC and needed my white coats done? There was a place in the shopping center on Jones Ferry Rd.
