All Seasons Cleaners, 2234 Carter Ave., finished up its remodel at the end of April and the new space has been “well-received” by customers, said owner Steve Rettler.
“It’s much brighter and more cheerful, and it looks larger because it’s brighter,” he said.
For two months the dry cleaning, laundry and alterations business worked out of the lower level of Milton Square, in a temporary space while builders tore out carpet and took the shop walls down to the studs.
“It was in desperate need of a full renovation,” Rettler said.
Rettler has owned the shop at Milton Square for more than 20 years. He got into the business working with his father-in-law. “I spent 10 years working with him. He trained me, showed me the ropes,” he said.
Eventually, Rettler bought the business and since then has expanded to six locations in the Twin Cities: St. Anthony Park, Minneapolis North Loop, Maple Grove, Deephaven, Minnetonka and Crystal. The Crystal facility is where the cleaning and alterations work is done. Rettler also has a wedding gown business in New Hope that offers alterations work on gowns and the after-wedding work of cleaning and preserving them.
