Terrific Find Tuesday - Hallak Cleaners

Today I went on a tour of  Hallak Cleaners.  It was the coolest thing I've done all month.  I know the first thing you may wonder is how much fun can I have a cleaners? Rest assured that Hallak Cleaners is far from just an "ordinary" cleaners.

The decor and colors of the cleaners make you feel so comfortable upon walking in.  It just puts you into a great mood, along with the front of the store staff that is very friendly and helpful.  I had the honor of receiving a warm greeting from John-Claude Hallak, VP of Hallak Cleaners & Donna Serino who spearheads the bridal gown preservation division, they then took me on a behind the scenes tour of the Hackensack, NJ location and that is where the fun began!  (Please note there is a NY location. See below for details).

I was able to get a mini course in all the equipment that is used to make their magic happen.  They had a lot of fancy gadgets and the automation & tracking of each item that comes in was mind blowing.  However, I was most impressed by the fact that they have a person(really nice lady) who actually inspects every item before it goes back to the customer.  Nothing leaves the grounds before it gets her stamp of approval.

So WHY do you ask this EVENT PLANNER  touring a Cleaners? For two reasons:

1) The employees are GREAT
2) The EXCELLENT reputation they have for cleaning and preserving your wedding gown.

You have invested THOUSANDS of dollars into your wedding dress, why not invest in making sure its handled with care after your big day?  I highly suggest that all brides-to-be who read this blog post contact them to learn more about their gown preservation process.  What was truly impressive to me was the passion, skill, & excellence that the Hallak family and its employees operate with daily.  I could see the pride and passion that John brings to his business and that alone sold me.  I will be telling all our brides about this great service.  As  BONUS they also provide alterations if you need before wedding day.
