I'd give this place 5 stars. I still go here when I need any of my better clothes cleaned, and that's because they do a phenomenal job. Ivory pants got splattered with mud? No problem. Red wine on my white jacket? Sure, they can probably get that out.
Barry Regent was recommended to me by some of my neighbors after having a few bad experiences at other dry cleaners. I must say I was very impressed with the way things turned out. Not only did I have my clothes cleaned I also had them hem a few pairs of my pants. They did an exceptional job. I find it well worth the price. They do send out coupons quite frequently so that always is a plus.
I've only used this place for my suede comforter, which my cat had ruined twice. Both times they were able to take the smell out. I was very impressed!
I don't generally buy clothes that require dry cleaning, because I'm cheap and because I don't trust other people to handle my clothes. I think that stems from my mother "misplacing" (see: trashing) my favorite pair of pants when I was like 10 years old because they were thread-bare and sad.
Anyhoo, back to Barry Regent. I attended a wedding... And let's just say a nice young lady on my shuttle back to our hotel had a little "accident" (see: spinach dip + open bar for 4 hours) in my frickin' lap!! That's right. You're thinking what I'm thinking.... It's the worst thing I think that can ever happen, ESPECIALLY when I was wearing such a pretty dress!!!
So I'm totally embarrassed to bring this into the cleaners because it smells terrible and I don't want them to think that I threw up on myself!!! (I did rinse it out at the hotel, but trust me, that didn't do much.) Long story short, they cleaned it, it's clean. No markings or spinach remnants in sight. THANK GOD!!
Barry Regent is a great dry cleaner that has been around forever. I have had every sort of service done here: from dry cleaning to alterations to having a very expensive couture sweater "blocked". But what I really have to give them 5 stars for is the work they did on hemming all of my designer jeans. They will alter the inseam but keep the original hem which is very important for jeans that cost a small fortune. It is definitely worth it!!!
Great cleaner that will always get the job done right. I know I trust it for all my cleaning and tailoring and so do lots of other people, cuz this place is always busy!
You get what you pay for. Have the cheap place ruin 1 item, and you'll keep coming back forever. They always make things right.
I've been going here for a few years and have never had a problem - in fact, a few times they got stains out when I wasn't sure what they were. Once I noticed a stain that didn't come out so they redid it and refunded my money. Since I travel a lot I love that they offer same day service.
It's no coincidence that Barry Regent is voted Chicago's best cleaners year after year after year. They simply do a damn good job. If you need your pants hemmed or your shirts pressed, this is the best to come. It isn't cheap, but they'll make you look gooooooood.
You can usually find coupons in the nieghborhood mailer packets, which are worth using. Definitely give it a try - I can guarantee you'll be pleased with the results, and given how many recognitions they've received, it seems they can guarantee it too.
