Schweinfurt's dry cleaning options
The garrison's dry-cleaning shop closed, but AAFES now offers a drop-off dry-cleaning option at the Conn Shoppette. Other dry-cleaning options off-post also remain available.

SCHWEINFURT, Germany (Sept. 11, 2013) -- The on-post dry-cleaning shop has closed at U.S. Army Garrison Schweinfurt, but community members are still able to drop off their laundry to get dry-cleaned at the Conn Shoppette.

Although the full-service dry-cleaning is no longer available, customers can drop off or pick up self-service cleaning at an "Easy Drop-Off" dry-cleaning counter that has been placed by the registers at the AAFES Shoppette located on Conn Barracks.

Customers need to fill out an order form and place it together with their clothes into a bag. Instructions for customer assistance are placed at the service counter.

As the community contracts here as a result of the announced closure next year, so too do some services.

"There's a spinoff effect created by departing community members: It also means there's a resulting decline of customers and clients," said Brian Adkins, garrison manager, in a recent post on Schweinfurt's Closure 2014 blog. "As community members leave, so too do consumers of garrison services. Demand for services is decreasing."

Below is a list of other local dry cleaners off-post.
