DashLocker, New York City’s only 24/7 green cleaner, announced aggressive expansion plans including three new storefront locations on the Upper East Side, as well as a distribution facility and corporate headquarters in Long Island City, Queens. In addition, the company announced it is currently in negotiations with major property owners, management companies, fitness centers, parking garages and hotels throughout the city.
“DashLocker’s services, which include 24-hour locker-based dry cleaning, laundry, shoe shine and package delivery service, offers a unique added value to these organizations that can be used by virtually anyone looking for time-saving convenience,” said DashLocker founder Robert Hennessy.
“Forget being limited by dry cleaner store hours or even delivery windows of time,” Hennessy added. “Just like ATMs changed the way we do banking, DashLocker revolutionizes dry cleaning/laundry by allowing customers to drop off and pick up their garments whenever their schedules allow.”
Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Retail’s Jay Gilbert represented DashLocker in securing its flagship location, which opened in early June 2012 at 1566 Second Avenue (between 81st & 82nd Streets), and new locations. New DashLocker storefronts will be open for business by late fall 2012 at the following addresses, accessible to all neighborhood residents:
• 1733 First Avenue (Southwest corner 90th Street)
• 1436 Lexington Avenue (West side, between 93rd & 94th Streets)
• 220 East 78th Street (South side, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues)
