American Dry Cleaner Magazine recently named Skylark the best new dry cleaning Plant-On-Premises in the United States for 2012. The magazine cited several unique aspects of Skylark’s new store, including a 24-hour locker kiosk and multiple green cleaning systems (Liquid CO2, Greenearth, and Professional Wet Cleaning).
