A former hair studio in Penwortham is re-opening as an eco-friendly dry cleaners.


Mum of three Alison Cannon is taking on the franchise for Prime Master Dry Cleaners’.

Following a £60,000 refurb of the building in Liverpool Road it becomes the eighth of the Lancashire and Merseyside chain.

The business specialises in cleaning delicate fabrics such as wool, leather and silk, so they are expert at helping breathe new life into designer label clothes, wedding dresses, soft furnishings such as curtains and even fabric shoes such as Ugg boots.

The secret lies in pioneering wet care machines made by cleaning experts Miele, which use water instead of chemicals to clean clothes. A non-toxic biodegradable detergent is used to help remove tough stains.

Ms Cannon, 54, is going to be working alongside her daughter, Hannah, 24, who will be helping introduce the eco-friendly set up to Penwortham.

Alison said: “I don’t think people realise how many chemicals are used in regular dry cleaning. This system uses water, so it’s very clean and green, and that’s important to me.

“It’s very gentle on fabrics and kind to the environment. I try to be green like everyone else but it’s hard in this day and age, so having a business with the right technology do the hard work for you has got to be a good thing.”

The Penwortham store was chosen as it had a ‘really nice high street’.

Prima was launched in 2002 by Natasha Davies.

She said: “Maintaining a close working relationship with our franchisees allows us to maintain the best possible quality and service and maintain the integrity of the brand.

“We’re really excited about the future, and especially excited for Alison as she launches the business in Penwortham.”

The dry cleaners will open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays.
