Kean's announces it will close 8 locations

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Kean's Fine Dry Cleaning announced Friday it will be closing eight locations that have been underperforming.

Officials said the following stores will close:

14505 LA 44 in Gonzales

218 Staring Lane

4665 Perkins Road

4556 Government Street

140 Sharp Road

311 South Burnside Avenue

8178 Hooper Plank Road

439 Ninth Street

Kean's stated customers with clothes at the LA 44, Staring Lane, Perkins Road and Government Street locations can pick up their items at the nearest Kean's location effective Monday.

The other four stores scheduled to close will remain available for pickups until October 9.

Kean's said "wash and wear" clothing and more casual business attire have created a situation in which the volume of use in those locations does not justify a presence any longer.

Officials added the impact of a labor shortage and implementation of Health Care Reform led them to move forward with a consolidation plan.

The company has six locations that will remain open.
