At Arrow we have founded our business on superior quality and integrity. For a little over 100 years, we have continued to carry that message into every facet of our business including our Professional Shirt Laundry. Every shirt and blouse must pass the final inspector’s question: “ Would I be proud to wear this garment?”
In order to maintain that level of professionalism and consistency, Arrow believes in continual training and education. Throughout the year, Arrow brings in Liz Davies, a dry cleaning consultant, to help us with continuous process improvement on our shirt units, and re-training our shirt pressers. When Liz comes in, she works one on one with employees to improve production, technique and quality. We are always happy to see Liz come in the facility. She has an honest, hardworking approach. She comes in and asks questions to employees such as “What is going to make you more successful in doing your job?” and “What can we do to help you?” Our employees are extremely receptive. They open up and find ways to improve on their already exceptional skills. Liz has become such a valuable part of our continued education.

Writer Andy Jordan of the Wall Street Journal has a good idea. "Defy Conformity! Go for 'Friday Formal'".
After decades of dressing casual on Friday, some companies are now encouraging a return to the good old days of "looking sharp" at the workplace at least on Fridays.
So, consider abandoning those jeans and hoodies. Get some dress shirts (...only about $18.00 at Costco) and dust off your suits (or...send them to Arrow...isn't that a good idea???!!!).
Friday formality may just help you be more serious and focused at your work. And, that can only be good.
Some sneaky stains can be a real head scratcher for us if we are working with incomplete information. You may not realize it, but some stains can be made up of compound elements beyond just the obvious presumed cause of the problem.
Coffee stains, for example, often contain milk or other additives, making the stain more difficult to remove since the coffee is a tannin stain and the milk leaves a protein- based stain. Both the coffee and the milk in the coffee are water-based stains, but protein stains require more work to get out. Such stains will have to be treated individually, even though the actual staining occurred at the same time.
If you drop off an item with a coffee stain, please inform the customer service representative how you take your coffee (i.e., with cream and sugar, milk and sugar, black, etc.).
Coming soon to www.ehow.com... In this picture owner, Bruce Gershon, preps for his video shoot with ehow.com. Bruce will be featured in a series of Leather and Fabric care "how to" videos on ehow.com beginning in April of 2012.
Bruce was contacted by ehow.com through one of their producers who had used Arrow's services before. Her husband was going to throw away one of his old leather coats, and she did not want to get rid of it. She did a Google search on leather restoration, and came to the conclusion that Arrow was the best place to send this special coat. She shipped the coat to Arrow through our special online shipping program, and when they received the coat back they were more than thrilled with the results.
Being recognized as one of the premiere leather cleaners in the country ehow.com asked Bruce to do a Leather and Fabric Care “how to” video series. 17 helpful videos were filmed and will be posted on ehow.com starting in April.
