Dry Cleaner Brings Eco-Friendly Approach to Durham

Coastal Cleaners, a dry cleaning business with locations in nearby Madison and Branford, is scheduled to open on Main Street next month.


Durham residents will soon have a place to take their dirty laundry.

Coastal Cleaners, a dry cleaning business with locations in Madison and Branford, is scheduled to open at 370 Main Street in early October.

The family-run business is owned by North Madison residents Patrick and Polly McCann and offers services including eco-friendly dry cleaning, wash-and-fold laundry and custom tailoring.

"I've already talked to several people and they've said, 'Wow, that's going to be great. It's really what we need,'" Patrick McCann told Patch this week. "We hope to be a good neighbor."

Coastal Cleaners does not use harsh chemicals but instead relies on state-of-the-art dry cleaning techniques described as "green cleaning."

McCann said the business' location on Main Street will offer customers convenience, which includes a 24-hour drop off. Customer Cleaners hours will be Mon.-Fri. from 7-6:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8-4 p.m.

The company will offer regular specials like a Grand Opening discount on men's laundered shirts, cleaned for $1.99 each, according to McCann.

Custom Cleaners is hiring three part-time employees at the new location. If interested, call 203-488-6433.
