Best of Philly 2008: Dry Cleaner
546 Carpenter Lane
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19119
Tom Vecchione, owner of Mount Airys Gem Cleaners for 12 years (ever since his father passed, and he owned it for 58 years before that), is the man to whom you send the clothes you want to have forever. Prices run higher than at most cleaners, but most cleaners dont return that vintage Chanel suit looking we swear! better than ever, and cant take the white coat drenched in tomato sauce and make it gleaming-new. And not only is he a miracle-worker; hes a miracle-worker who does pickup and delivery.
