About Us: 

A Family Owned Dry Cleaner for Three Generations

Serving you in Burlington and Chapel Hill

Providing Top Quality Dry Cleaning Since 1953


McPherson Cleaners was founded in 1953 by the late Willard McPherson and the business is currently owned and managed by his son Gary McPherson with the help of his son Ian McPherson. Over the years Gary learned much about dry cleaning, customer service and managing a successful business from his father. Willard taught Gary to always follow the statement “Do the best job you can.” and that mantra has been passed down his son, Ian, today. At McPherson Cleaners we understand the importance of not only quality workmanship but great customer service.


Three Generations of Growth


Over three generations of family business, McPherson Cleaners has grown to over 18 employees and 3 locations. We now operate out of two locations. Our Burlington flagship location has been joined by a shop in Chapel Hill. With two locations we are able to provide McPherson’s brand of quality dry cleaning care to a wider customer base.


Excellence in Dry Cleaning

The Award of Excellence is the top award our industry can give to Dry Cleaners and McPherson Cleaners is one of six in the state that has won this award. Our quality is so consistently good we have continued to receive this award for the past 12 years. It is a testament to the fundamentals of great service put forth by Willard McPherson back in 1953 and continued today by Gary and Ian.


We Can Do it All!


We are proud to handle anything from wedding gowns, furs, leathers, drapes (take down and put up), suits, shirts to the hardest stains in everyday apparel while always maintaining the humble family attitude “do the best job you can”. Stop by one of our two locations to discover the McPherson Cleaners’ difference.


McPherson Cleaners understands the world we live in today is also the world our children will live in tomorrow. We use Eco Green Garment Bags to help reduce the waste produced by dry cleaning. Unlike traditional plastic bags, ours break down in the landfill quickly eliminating the environmental impact.
