Forest Hills, Pittsburgh--September 18, 2007--It has been two years since Forest Hills has had a local dry cleaner and tailor. Patricia DuVall, recently retired schoolteacher, is pleased to be a part of the Forest Hills, Ardmore Business Community. Patricia DuVall is the owner of Strong II Dry Cleaners, which is conveniently located next to Citizens Bank near Subway and the Hands on Healthcare at 3 Parkway Center East. Strong II Dry Cleaners opened in June of 2007. Patricia is proud to be a first time minority, woman business owner and loves the business and the people in the community.

Ms. DuVall, the owner of Strong II Dry Cleaners, brings with her three generations of dry cleaning experience in association with Strong Cleaners, the licensor store. Since 1933, Strong Cleaners has been a community established dry cleaning business. Strong Cleaners is a member of the International Fabric Care Institute, which is an organization devoted to research and analysis of the garment industry and training in the care of fine clothing. Ms. DuVall says, “This makes us also ‘total fabric care specialists,’ backed by over seventy years’ experience of Strong Cleaners.”

Now Patricia says, “You can go to the bank, get a sandwich and drop off or pick up your dry cleaning in the same area. That’s the kind of convenience a community like Forest Hills deserves.”

Strong II Dry Cleaners offers home pick up and delivery service, which can be scheduled by calling Strong II Dry Cleaners at 412-271-6000 or on line at

Strong II Dry Cleaners also has a defining niche in its Pre-Paid Value Added StrongCard™ . Clients can receive a savings of 10% to 28% on regular dry cleaning prices.
