What our customers are saying…

Gibson’s Cleaners is by far the best cleaners experience I have ever experienced. I’ll start by sharing examples of why I feel this way. Behind the counter, there are a group of friendly women that know you by name, smile and greet you every time you walk through the door, and keep the place looking spotless. They are well organized and are ready to serve you immediately. I have come across situations where I was in desperate need of buttons on a blazer, alterations or cleaning done quickly, and recently in desperate need of dealing with an issue that unexpectedly came up. The women handled it with dignity and respect, willing to help me when I needed it most. I will continue to trust in the team and Gibson’s Cleaners for all of my dry cleaning and alterations. Definitely a high class cleaners all the way!

With a goal of being more sustainable this year, I decided to repair a lot of my wardrobe. Rather than throw out my winter coat, I decided to reline it with help from Gibson’s. When I got it back I was stunned – their team completely revitalized my winter jacket and it looks like new.
