It Had to Come
The Cleaning Business, in common with all other
lines of industry, during the past two years, has been
subject to heavy increase in cost of Supplies, Labor,
Rent, etc.
During this time our prices have remained sta
tionary, and many Cleaners have barely made ex
penses. It is necessary for us, if we keep up our
Quality of work and service, to advance prices slightly
until things become normal.
We believe a 10 per cent increase on each order,
while it will mean very little to any one customer, will
allow us a reasonable profit on our work and enable
us to keep up our Quality and Service.
We ask your cheerful acceptance of the new ar
rangement and the continuance of your patronage
and co-operation.
