Thankful for service during festival setup

I would just would like to take time to publicly thank Sauk Valley Cleaners Inc. of Dixon. Why a thank you?

We had an item at the dry cleaners and needed it for on Sunday, July 6, for an event. Well, to my surprise when I went to pick up the item, the dry cleaners was closed because of the Petunia Festival setup, a day before they opened the festival.

Lucky for me, there was another person trying to pick up an item, and this person knew who I could contact to get the item. I contacted them, and they went above and beyond to get the item to me for the Sunday event.

I asked why they had to close their door before the Petunia Festival began, and was informed it was because of setting up. So, they had to close without income for their employees, along with people not being able to get their dry cleaning items.

Next year, I hope there is a solution to keep our local businesses open, such as allowing walk-in business if the streets need to be closed. Once again, thank you, Sauk Valley Cleaners Inc.
