New Martinizing Store Opens in Virginia
Fairfax location offers home/office pickup/delivery as well as locker-based option
FAIRFAX, Va. — The newest Martinizing Dry Cleaning store has opened here in northern Virginia. Offering multiple options for service and open six days a week, the store is owned by John W. Gray IV, who spent a 20-year career in finance working for Fortune 500 companies before setting out on his own.
“It has always been a goal of mine to own my own business,” says Gray. “I was inspired by my wife, who has spent nearly a decade running a successful daycare. After researching many franchises and concepts, Martinizing was the right fit for me. I was a satisfied and loyal customer for many years, and I look forward to creating many memorable experiences for my customers.”
In addition to traditional in-store service at the 2,400-square-foot site in the Turnpike Shopping Center, 9558 Main St., Martinizing will offer home/office pickup and delivery as well as a locker-based delivery option.
“Providing route service has been a common way to offer additional convenience for customers,” Gray says. “Now we are going one step further with bizziebox, where we will install lockers in apartment buildings and offices throughout the area. Customers can place their clothes in a locker, we will pick up the order within a day and return it to that locker location. It’s all technology-based, either through our mobile app, text, e-mail or website, and it takes convenience to a whole new level.”
The store utilizes the environmentally friendly GreenEarth cleaning process.
To celebrate his store’s grand opening, Gray will host a celebration next week featuring giveaways, a special drawing, free ice cream, and more.
