Consumer says Manhattan dry cleaner damaged wool pants

Member complaint

I hired Aphrodite Cleaners of Manhattan, New York, to hem and dry clean a pair of wool pants.

I paid in advance to have the pants delivered. They delivered the pants two days late, and when they arrived, the pants were so shrunken I could barely pull them up. The fabric was also uniformly damaged and appeared laundered rather than dry cleaned.

When I brought this to their attention, they denied it. They claimed that I’d delivered the pants in that condition. The pants are completely ruined.

I want $100 to replace the pants.

Penalty box

Have a complaint?

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement. Find out more about the Complaint Resolution Process.
