SOLENT CLEANERS SAVED!
HIGH STREET FAVOURITE RETURNS
POPULAR CLEANERS TO RE-OPEN
After recent news of Solent Cleaners closing its doors after over 50 years of service, there is much celebration today, with the great news that the store has been saved!
Although it looks as thought other branches may still be closing down, the long-standing Fleet branch has been bought out by Timpsons (who already own two shops of their own in Fleet) and is already back open and in business again.
Below: Facebook announcement of re-opening!
Wendy Marsh who managed the store for over 21 years is back in her rightful place with her other staff just in time for Christmas…now that’s a Christmas present that will be hard to beat!

Wendy said…“I just want all of our old customers to come back and new ones to come and see what we do. Next week we will have more going on and lots more services come and see for yourselves once we are up and running properly”.
So a part of history gets to stay on Fleet High Street, not very often we get to see that but what a wonderful conclusion for all involved. The store is open from today onwards and Wendy and her team are ready to take your orders!
