About Us

Central_Jan37Gold Medal Cleaners has been providing the finest dry cleaning to the North Shore since 1927.  We are a third generation, family owned and operated, local business.  Our professionals take great pride in our work and strive to perform the best job possible, so we can guarantee your satisfaction and keep you looking your best.  Our professionals on staff have an average of almost 20 years experience with us.  This experience is reflected in our quality.

We use only the finest soaps and supplies available to our industry in order to provide the best cleaning possible.  We follow the industry’s best practices such as:

  • using clean, freshly distilled solvent in every load
  • never mixing dark colors and light colors in the same load
  • never overloading our machines
  • Using the highest quality supplies and detergents

All garments are hand inspected several times, at each step in our process and all work is done on the premises so we can maintain complete control to our standards, and yours. 

These principles were put in place in 1927 when Gold Medal Cleaners opened, and are still adhered to today by the same family.  Originally located throughout the North Side of Chicago, Gold Medal Cleaners moved to our present location in downtown Wilmette in 1959.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your fabric care needs, please call us or stop in, we are here to serve you.



As a proud member of the Drycleaning and Laundry Institute, we have resources available to us that other local cleaners can not match.
