Peters’ Cleaners was the local dry cleaner I used and I was excited when I had the opportunity to buy the business in June 2016.
The company now now has 2 shops in Millfield Peterborough and on St, Pauls Street, Stamford. Both shops provide dry cleaning and laundry services for a wide range of items including clothes, curtains, wedding dresses, rugs and bedding.
The business is focused on making its services available to more people. It is expanding through the launch of 24/7 self-service pods. These enable customers to drop off and pick their dry cleaning and laundry any time, any day.
The first pod 24/7 self-service pod is located at Serpentine Green shopping centre. A second is opening at Peterborough Station, at the back of Waitrose, in January 2021.

Peters’ Cleaners is also focused on becoming the most sustainable dry cleaner in the area. It is the only dry cleaner to offer wet cleaning. Wet cleaning is a more environmentally friendly method of cleaning than dry cleaning.
Over the next few years the company aims to be able to offer its services in more locations. Peters’ Cleaners looks forward to providing high quality, convenient and sustainable dry cleaning and laundry services to more customers.
