Tide Dry Cleaning Comes to The Village at Arbor Lakes
Tide Dry Cleaning is one of the first businesses to open its doors as part of The Village at Arbor Lakes.
“When we opened our first store, a lot of people asked do you sell Tide,” remembers franchise owner Todd Laabs.
Laabs says people immediately reminisce about their grandmother using Tide, loving the smell, or how Tide reminds them of their own home.
“The overall response has been good,” says Laabs.
Tide Dry Cleaning is already operating in two other metro locations and in local Hy-Vee stores. The business offers a unique combination of technology and hands-on, personal service.
“I think technology is in a little bit of all of our services,” says Laabs. “We like to blend both, high service and high touch.”
Not only can you drop-off your clothes by going through the drive-through or walking them inside, but you can use the 24-hour kiosk. It acts like a Redbox of sorts for dry cleaning. Just enter your phone number or scan a QR code from an email to pick up your order.
Tide Dry Cleaning plans a grand opening June 2, where customers can get two garments cleaned for free.
Other businesses coming to The Village at Arbor Lakes
The Tide Dry Cleaning in Maple Grove is one of the first businesses to open up shop in The Village at Arbor Lakes. The development is located at the corner of Elm Creek Boulevard North and Hemlock Lane North.
“The Village at Arbor Lakes is a large, mixed-use development that really rounds out the last corner of the Arbor Lakes area,” says Carie Wille, Maple Grove’s economic development manager.
There are three businesses open in the first two multi-tenant retail buildings. Besides Tide Dry Cleaners, there’s Luxur Nails as well as Light Rx, a body contouring and skin rejuvenation business. A vet clinic called Well Haven also plans to open in one of the buildings.
“They are looking to fill those with not only tenants to serve the immediate area but also the broader community,” says Wille.
Nearby, Wings Financial Credit Union will open. Construction will begin on a Marriott Hotel concept where two hotels share the same lobby space. More restaurants and retail are planned for the location as well as a drive-thru coffee shop and additional office space.
“There’s lots of possibility and lots of potential,” says Wille. “We’re excited to see what might come.”
The first restaurant announced for the site is a new concept to Maple Grove. It’s a Japanese Ramen noodle restaurant called Ichiddo Ramen.
Developers have planned a 700-unit luxury apartment complex called The Reserve just north of The Village at Arbor Lakes .
