Best of 2008 Palo Alto Weekly

Located in the Charleston Shopping Center right at the corner of Charleston and Middlefield Road, there is always convenient parking nearby. Drop off your dry cleaning, do your grocery shopping (Piazza's Fine Foods), get your hair styled (blades barber and styling), buy your pet food (Pet Food Express), eat lunch or dinner (Green Elephant Gourmet and Rojos Wraps), and enjoy a Peet's Coffee all without moving your car.

All dry cleaning is done on premises, and we are now using an Environmentally Friendly Dry Cleaning Process! We use DF-2000™ dry cleaning hydrocarbon solvent.

Here's what the Palo Alto Weekly said about Charleston Cleaners:

In 2008:

You may think that all starches are created equal, and the Atkin's Diet may substantiate that, but as any good politician knows, when it comes to dress shirts, the need can be pressing. Charleston Cleaners can give you that clean, pressed look with crisp collars and sleeves that still let you raise your arms above your head, should you have the occasion to do so. The owners of this local family-owned business know their customers and, if you work it right, you'll walk off with a chocolate treat in addition to your clean, perfectly starched garments.

In 2009:

How can you keep those primary colors looking bright after a hard week of battling crime? Take your capes and tights to Charleston Cleaners, where they'll track down stains and wrinkles and eliminate the threat to your crisp, comic-book image. They'll also throw in some complimentary Hershey's Kisses while they starch and press your civilian clothes to help you maintain your disguise. The proficiency of this family-owned business isn't a secret, but the owners will keep their lips sealed about yours.
