Young Cleaners and Dyers opened at 336 N. Church Street, in the town of Concord, NC, in February 1941. The northern boundary of the town was only two blocks north at Todd street, on the north side of Oakwood Cemetery. The business prospered, Anna and Luke Young quickly began buying out their partner in a matter of months. The business continued to grow and the two buildings, where we currently process, were purchased in 1943.
Working hard to live up to the slogan, "We Strive to Please," provided loyal customers. Anna concentrated on the wants and needs of the customers, making sure that each garment was its best. Luke cleaned and removed stains with skill and expertise that exceeded his age of 24, having worked in a drycleaners since the age of 13.
Behind the scenes, Luke was building a reputation among other cleaners in the state as the go-to guy for problems with garments. Many cleaners would drive to Concord to get his help and advice on dealing with tough cleaning challenges.
By 1970 the "service station" was bought to provide additional space and off street parking on the busy north-south route through the city of Concord.
During the 40 years between 1941 and 1981, Young Cleaners went from being on the edge of town in the notorious Forest Hill area, to the center-city, surrounded by Locke Mill, the Coca-Cola Plant, and the Cabarrus Creamery.

Garment Care Tips
As a dry cleaner, it’s our business to make sure your garments stay in the best condition possible. Though we provide many helpful services to our customers to keep their favorite pieces looking their best wear after wear, there are many things you can do at home to ensure that your wardrobe staples stay in great shape between cleanings. Consider doing the following to keep your clothing looking its best:
Don’t over-wash (or dry clean!) your clothing
Keep in mind that it’s often okay to re-wear a favorite item without washing it again. Many clothing items need to be cleaned after each wear for hygienic purposes, but there are also many items that can be re-worn a time or two before putting them in the washing machine or bringing them to your favorite dry cleaner. As long as an item is not visibly soiled or stretched out and does not emit an odor, consider wearing it again before washing to extend its life.
Read clothing labels carefully
We’re all busy, but we should still make reading the labels on our clothing a priority. Following the instructions provided on the care label from the start keeps clothing in its best condition, helping to maximize the lifetime of each garment and ensuring a proper fit for a longer period of time.
Invest in appropriate hangers
It might be surprising, but investing a little more money in higher quality hangers can help extend the life of your favorite garment. By providing proper support – especially to shirts and jackets – you’ll ensure that clothes won’t get stretched out, which can ensure that they’ll fit better longer and even help reduce wear and tear that might occur from stretching.
Wear the right clothing for the job
It might seem obvious, but one way to reduce trips to the dry cleaner and keep your clothes in great shape longer is to wear appropriate attire for every activity. If you’re preparing to do a dirty job, like mowing the lawn or washing the car, change into something you won’t mind getting dirty. Coming home from a long day at the office to cook dinner? Make sure to wear an apron or, better yet, change out of your work clothes prior to cooking your meal. Getting some cooking oil on a pair of yoga pants is much less costly than ruining your favorite pair of professional slacks!
Following these simple tips can help keep your favorite clothing in great shape for years to come!
