“Ablitt’s membership in the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists has the highest ROI if any marketing investment we make. Connecting with like-minded drycleaners to share best practices for cleaning and marketing our wedding gown service is priceless.

The membership is always responsive through the Google Group. Having a group of experts to refer to in an instant is a major stress-saver, and provides us with the confidence to accept more challenging projects. The annual meeting is a way for members to connect with each other more closely and to grow as a dry cleaner. The speakers at the meeting are always novel, interesting and helpful. The educational programs are available to owners and employees alike. 

I highly suggest that anyone interested in providing in-house wedding gown cleaning join this association!”
