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.
