This record snow fall has been one for the books–the accounting books, that is. Businesses such as Dependable Cleaners, a dry cleaning chain with 16 locations throughout Greater Boston, has started to feel the pinching effects of closing its doors during this winter’s historic weather.
Dependable Cleaners has had to close all 16 of its locations 3.5 times over the past three weeks, and it is starting to see the fall out.

WHDH Channel 7 News stopped by Dependable Cleaners on Thursday, February 12 to chat with CEO/President Christa Hagearty about business.
