Traditionally, the dry cleaning process was carried out at centralized factories and processing plants; dry cleaner shops received garments from customers, sent them to the factory, and then had them returned to the shop, where the customer could collect them (this was due mainly to the risk of fire or dangerous fumes created by the cleaning process). Usually, dry cleaning stores are open Monday through Friday from 8AM to 6PM and open only half day on Saturdays or closed on weekends.
