As bloggers; journalists, columnists and the like most of us at these papers are always looking to save time on any tasks that we have to do. Since about last year, I myself have used Flycleaners to pick up and wash my clothes for me in the city. For the most part — they’ve been pretty well up until recently (this Tech Crunch article sums it up).
Recently, it appears that Flycleaners laid off a significant number of its staff. A TC article posted in June revealed that the company suddenly underwent “restructuring” and that they were trying to justify whatever issues were about to imminently arise.
Poking around social media and asking around my tech circles, I, did confirm that it appears that Flycleaners quietly sold itself to Nextcleaners (which appears to quite literally be all over Manhattan).
Those issues have now hit us alike many other people experiencing the issues all over social media. Earlier last week, 8/2, I made an order for pick up and what not and expected my order to be delivered the next day. As you see on the date of this article — my order still has not arrived. Priceless clothes are now totally M.I.A and I now have to replace multiple outfits that were pending for fashion week (which is literally in a matter of weeks).
A prime example…
Attention everyone: NEVER use @FlyCleaners . They picked up my clothes 10 days ago and NEVER BROUGHT THEM BACK. @nextcleaners it would be great if you could actually find my clothes and return them to me!

Respond to me, cowards!!!!!! @FlyCleaners Stop stealing peoples' clothing, money, and time! Your refusal to conduct any sort of customer service correspondence with people who have been without clothes for weeks is CRIMINAL. I WANT MY CLOTHES BACK!
