Owners: Cathy and Clark Sowers
After selling Sowers Sanitation, Sowers thought Belle Fourche could support a dry cleaning business since the town already had two drop stores for dry cleaning businesses in Spearfish. Black Hills Laundry & Dry Cleaning was one of only four dry cleaning businesses in the Northern Black Hills at the time. As of 2016 it is the only dry cleaning business in the Northern Hills.
When asked what sets his business apart, Sowers described it as having “an emphasis on quality and dependability, with great employees that live this as well.”
Black Hills Laundry & Dry Cleaning currently employs ten people at the dry cleaning plant and laundromat in Belle Fourche, and nine others at the Spearfish and Sturgis locations.
Sowers stated that his goal for Black Hills Laundry & Dry Cleaning in the community is to “own and operate a store whose primary concern is the highest quality of customer service and satisfaction.” And that, “It is imperative for the owners, managers and employees to commit to these goals. The foundation of which will be to provide honest and reliable service and work for the customer, to the employee and the employer.
“We pledge to be an example of new and aspiring businesses in Belle Fourche, Spearfish, Sturgis and the entire Northern Black Hills.”
