The most recent gross sales of this dry cleaning pick-up station have been running at around 50% of last year's sales due to Covid-19. It is quite down from the past several years used to be around $165-170K a year consistent, however, soon with the vaccine coming out and the pandemic over, this fully equipped dry cleaner will definitely bring the business back to its previous days or beyond as long as pro-active marketing from the new owner takes place. There are many ways to increase overall sales by offering pick-up/drop-off services, taking in more household items, reaching out to local school districts for faculty discounts, band uniforms, churches, etc. Besides that, various marketing tactics need to be utilized, such as more online and social media outlet presence, direct marketing, coupons, and weekly deals to expose the business to public and local customers.
