Procter & Gamble is thinking fancy-future for the suburbs when it comes to doing laundry. They've got plans to open one of their new high-tech upscale eco-friendly Tide dry cleaning facilities in Naperville next Year.
The dry cleaners will be a 3,000-square-foot drive-through franchise that will include 24 hour pick-up, same day service, and alterations. All clothes will smell of Tide after they're serviced and will be priced comparably with other dry cleaners. The only things missing from this brilliant idea are dounts and coffee.
