    The ones that no longer exist, that would use toxic chemicals that lower (or totally eliminate) the value of the real estate.
    I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

    I think they don't ruin your clothes like happy cleaners does.
    If it's because they are organic, I'm not sure;)
    Supporting a yid's small business is another reason.

    I used to use another Jewish cleaners in ch until he lost 3 expensive shirts (which were still in his system as not picked up) and he told me you must have picked it up and wouldn't offer any kind of compensation. At that point I realized that I'd rather deal with a store I have no problem demanding full compensation if anything isn't perfect.

    I used to go exclusively to Jewish owned cleaners, until my Talis was ruined and returned with fragrances. I use Happy now.
