LAS VEGAS (March 2020) – Tiffany Couture Cleaners, Las Vegas’ family-owned dry cleaner known for its superior service and care for the finest clothing and fabrics, celebrates its 50th anniversary as a family-owned business in 2020. Tiffany Couture Cleaners opened its first store in 1970 in Commercial Center. Today, they have three locations and a production facility in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada.
The family’s dry-cleaning history began in the ‘50s in Easton, Pennsylvania with the Germano brothers, Eddie, Jack and Emilio, who ran G&G Cleaners in that town. Eddie fell in love with Las Vegas on a visit and sought to purchase a dry-cleaning operation in the city. He discovered Tiffany in 1970. He moved his family to Las Vegas and, along with his wife Dee, ran the company for many years, gaining the reputation for being the best in the community. In the ensuing years, Jack and Emilio moved to Las Vegas to help Eddie and Dee run the business.
They soon became known as the top choice of the city’s wardrobe managers, who trusted Tiffany to care for their entertainers’ elaborate show costumes. From delicate feathers to garments encrusted with thousands of crystals and diamonds, no matter the costume, Tiffany not only knew how to clean but also repair anything wardrobe managers needed. This level of care and skills would eventually lead Tiffany to become known as the “dry cleaner to the stars.” Celebrity customers include Cirque du Soleil, the casts of “Absinthe” and Chippendales, Paula Abdul, Wayne Newton, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga and more.
In 2004, Eddie passed away and, in 2005, his daughter Judy Del Rossi and her husband Dan bought Tiffany from her Uncle Emilio. They expanded upon the name “Tiffany” in 2007, calling it Tiffany Couture Cleaners, because they believed it needed a more elevated name due to the caliber of clients and garments they serviced.
Today, the Del Rossis maintain Tiffany’s sterling reputation as the premier cleaner in Las Vegas. Since taking over the business, improvements and enhancements to the business include adding the environmentally safe and non-hazardous Solven K4 (SK4) cleaning system in 2011, making Tiffany the first dry cleaners west of the Mississippi to implement the SK4 green cleaning process. They also moved their business to a new, larger, high-tech plant in Southwest Las Vegas, installing LED lighting, high-efficiency steam traps, a recycled water chiller, recycled hangers, low-water volume washing machines and custom-built air-dry areas.
“This year marks an extraordinary milestone for our family’s business,” says Judy Del Rossi. “Throughout all the change and growth, we work tirelessly to deliver the best care and service to our customers, while adopting today’s energy-efficient and safe cleaning methods.”
To include customers in the celebration, Tiffany will announce 50th anniversary-themed promotions shortly.
