   D & D Drycleaners  was established in 1977 under the ownership of Donald & Dorothy Forsyth. Hence, the D&D name. We started off in a small store front at the old Vality shopping center in Ledyard Connecticut. Aproximately nine months later we purchased our first plant on Bank Street in New London, Connecticut.  Over the years we have done

numerous wholesale accounts and purchased our current location in 1991. Throughout the years mainly family have run the business and in 2007 a second generation took over the business entirely when Don & Dot decided to retire.
