Some of you may remember the Nash Car Dealership from way back. Others may remember Smith Cleaners, which was moved from Holly to Lamar by Pat and Tom Smith in 1972. Dan and Connie Spelts bought the dry cleaning business in 1990’s. In 1997, Shawn & Deb Pelley purchased Smith Cleaners and began doing alterations, along with dry cleaning and shirt and jean laundry and Quality Cleaners was established. Quality Cleaners is located at 116 W. Olive Street in the historic building owned by the Peery family. The Peery family has owned the building since the beginning of Smith Cleaners.

Quality Cleaners is known for their care, quality of work, and service to the community. They have established various drop points to serve the cleaning needs of the surrounding areas. On Monday, Quality Cleaners travels to their Holly drop point at the Heart of Country and then off to Coolidge, Kansas. Wednesdays and Fridays they travel to their drop off locations in Walsh (Miller Specialty) and Springfield (Treasure Chest Mall) and somewhere in between all of this traveling, drop off items are exchanged with the Eads Auto Supply – the Napa store – the drop off site in Eads. Quality Cleaners also maintains a local route in Lamar.

For guests that are traveling through Lamar or stationed here working away from home, Quality Cleaners will do your bulk laundry. They offer wash and fold services either by the pound or by the piece. All mending and alterations are welcome. Within the city limits of Lamar, Quality Cleaners is willing to pick up and deliver all of your dry cleaning and laundry items.

Dry cleaning and commercial laundry services include laundering shirts and jeans with heavy to light starch.

“We thank our faithful customers,” says Shawn Pelley. “We try to please. Like the sign says, ‘Quality you can hang on to.’ Stop in and visit Tammy, our manager, and her staff anytime. Her staff has just grown by one as her daughter, Tiffany, just had a baby boy.”
