venetian cleaners is open for phase 1!

April 30, 2020

Venetian Cleaners is glad to announce we will reopen our doors tomorrow, May 1, 2020 to dry cleaning business. All of our dry cleaning stores will open under temporary Covid-19 hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, and 9:00 am to 12:00 pm Saturday. We will resume all dry cleaning services. We will continue to follow the respective guidelines for compliant and safe operations, and specifically will continue to limit our pick-up/drop-off process to drive-thru only. Please expect our staff to be wearing masks and gloves as they perform their duties, and help us to keep our operations safe by complying with our governor's guidelines about appropriate social interactions during this phase of the reopening process. With all that said, we look forward to seeing you again soon and serving your dry cleaning needs.


In good health,

Mike and Michael von Waldner

Follow-up: VENETIAN CLEANERS UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

March 23, 2020

To our customers and community,


Dry Cleaning Operations Closed


We regret to inform you that contrary to our initial expectation that we would be able to continue with our doors open under a more socially isolated business regime, we have found it in the best interest of our company to prioritize the health of our staff and shut down dry cleaning operations until Monday, April 6, 2020 at the earliest. No new drop-offs will be accepted after close of business today, Monday March 23, while customers will have until this Friday (March 27) to pick up completed orders.


Laundromat Service Still Open, with Increased Sanitation Measures


Our Englewood laundromat will stay open and available to customers who need its facilities to wash and dry clothes. We are putting additional sanitation measures in place about which we will provide further detail shortly.


We encourage you to continue reaching out to us with any questions or concerns at team@venetiancleaners.com, or also to our cell phones 941-356-0643 (Mike) and 941-356-0520 (Michael).


Thank you,

Venetian Cleaners Update Regarding COVID-19

March 19. 2020



To our customers and community,


We hope this message finds you well during the extraordinary times of COVID-19. As proud providers of your dry cleaning needs, and part of your local personal economy, we want to provide you with guidance about what you can expect as a patron of Venetian Cleaners during the foreseeable near term of COVID-19.


First and foremost, we want to emphasize that we are open for business. All three of our Venice, Englewood, and Nokomis stores remain operational, and we do not plan for that to change over the next month amidst the current business climate.


Beyond just being open, we want to acknowledge the privileged position we feel to be in as a ‘get-in get-out’ business to be able to provide the normal sense of everyday life that pre-existed COVID-19. Within the operational constraints needed to protect all of our health and slow the virus’s spread, we are directing our efforts to providing that sense of normalcy.


Operational Modifications Given COVID-19


We are currently operating under the 15 Days to Slow the Spread guidance of the White House and CDC, and during this timeframe and until further notice will implement the following measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus.


  • Drive-through only at Venice and Nokomis - Where we are able to limit cross traffic by closing our doors to walk-in transactions, we are doing so. This means that at our Venice and Nokomis stores, we will receive all pick-up and drop-off orders from each of those stores' drive thru windows.


  • Continued offering of delivery service - To make a further measure of isolation available to our customers, we are expanding our use of home pick-up and drop-off service. The billing process for this service entails a statement bill payable by check when we don't have a credit card on file, and a regularly planned credit card charge when we do. Please reach out to team@venetiancleaners.com if you would like to sign up for service.


  • Sending staff home if sick or in at-risk categories - In addition to common sense measures of social distancing and good hygiene at our stores, we have asked at-risk employees to stay home on paid leave. We want to convey this to our customers so that they can be sure their patronage will not pose incremental risk to our staff.


Conclusions


Our plan at Venetian Cleaners is to make and communicate the small tweaks necessary to remain as close to business as usual as possible. We do not yet plan to make changes to store hours or to our employees’ pay, and believe that with your confidence and our collective sound judgment we will be able to do so. We look forward to communicating with you next when such has been the case.


With wishes of good health,


Mike & Michael von Waldner
