JOHN DAY - A new dry-cleaning business has opened in town, and it's family owned and operated.
Meagan Sherman operates the business, and she is the one you would consult for your cleaning and rental needs. She was born and raised in Grant County and loves living and working here.
Dress and Press opened March 28. They are a drop site for dry cleaning, renting tuxedos and a small selection of gowns. Dry cleaning may be dropped off on Thursday and picked up the following Thursday.
They carry some craft items, candles, scrapbooking supplies and a line of wedding invitations and announcements.
"I would really like to expand on this end of the business in the future, by carrying more wedding supplies, possibly gown sales or rentals, I think there are people who would use this customized service," Sherman said.
The business also does steaming, pressing and may take laundry in the future.
By referring customers to "Designs by Di," a private citizen who does alterations, zippers, machine embroidery, monograms and names, the business is able to be your one-stop shop for cleaning, sewing repairs and crafting.
Meagan's parents, Terry and Cheryl Sherman, are the owners and they help out when needed; however, they both work in other jobs. Terry works for Iron Triangle and Cheryl owns Cheryl Sherman Investigations. A business she has run for the past eight years.
When you have a dry cleaning question, call Meagan at (541) 575-0488 or stop by between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., at 677 West Main Street, # 200, in John Day. It's behind Bare Bones, across from Kountry Lanes bowling alley.
