MAKING THE MOOSE
From our first store in Sherwood in 1995 to the recently opened Financial Centre Parkway location, Moose Cleaners has always been a family owned and locally operated business.
HOOFPRINTS ACROSS CENTRAL ARKANSAS: THE MOOSE CLEANERS STORY
Our philosophy is simple: offer the best value to our customers by providing quality, professional dry-cleaning services and while maintaining our low prices. We are grateful to all our customers who have made our business thrive in this community and to our 45 hardworking teammembers, many of whom have been with us for over a decade.
Moose Cleaners opens in Sherwood, Arkansas.
The grand opening of our first Moose Cleaners location was in May 1995 on Kiehl Avenue in Sherwood. Since then, we have opened and closed many stores, continually looking for better locations to serve our customers. Our second location was opened in July 1995 on JFK Blvd in North Little Rock.
Moose Cleaners finds a new HQ in North Little Rock.
In July of 2002, we moved from our 4,000 square foot original plant into an 8,000 square foot building, acquiring state-of-the-art equipment, and increasing our staff to accommodate our growth.
A big year for the Moose!
Moose Cleaners opened two locations in 2004, including our cleaners on University Avenue. 2004 was also the first year we cleaned over 1,000,000 garments — a major milestone for a local business!
Dry cleaning in Arkansas gets an upgrade.
Our location in downtown Little Rock at the corner of Broadway and 3rd Street opened in September of 2017. A month later, Moose Cleaners invested in a major upgrade with the installation of a state of the art automated assembly system. The MetalProgetti Automatic Conveyor is the only machine like it in the state and it can process about 600 garments per hour. The machine tracks the bar-codes attached to the garments, thus greatly reducing the possibility of losing an item. We finished the year in celebration, with the launch of our new location on Financial Centre Parkway in December.
WHY A MOOSE?
So you might wonder, why a moose? Well, I am glad you asked. There are a lot of endearing qualities a moose has that are applicable to dry cleaning. A few examples of why a Moose fits our goals in making you a happy, life-long, customer:
- A moose has long antlers, to fight off stains, and to defend your clothes integrity against blemishes and unwanted button breaks. Plus, those things are great for hanging a ton of shirts on!
- Moose have a large hoofprint, they are BIG and can be seen anywhere and everywhere. You need a dry cleaner with multiple convenient locations. Moose Cleaners makes it a point to provide the closest reach to it’s customers.
- They travel in herds with their closest friends and family. You deserve a family experience where those serving you know who you are and what you need, even what you expect, and in most cases exceed your expectations!
