Cleaners closes

July 30, 2013

Crystal Cleaners located at 954 N Bridge St. in Elkin has closed.


The cleaner location was part of an expansion for the Mount Airy-based company owned by Juan Seo.


The Elkin facility was a drop-off location only.


A company employee confirmed the closure and indicated that the location wasn’t conducive for the business.


Crystal Cleaners was located in the B-2 district and dry cleaners are a permitted use. According to town officials, the company was in compliance with current zoning.


“We didn’t have a grand opening. It didn’t help that our sign wasn’t big enough either,” said Lisa Wright of Crystal Cleaners.


She said they are looking for a new location in Elkin.
