How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Our ratings turn up many local drycleaners who can tune up your clothes. The really good news? Many top-rated shops also charge low prices, meaning they won’t clean out your wallet while they clean your wardrobe.

Our ratings tables will help you find a sole mate. We evaluate area shops for quality and price.

Shoe repair shops can perform several tasks to fix up your footwear.

Here are a few basic steps to follow in dealing with whatever shop you choose.
