A Kansas City Staple

Arrow Fabricare is the oldest tenured locally-owned laundry service in Kansas City, and there’s a reason for that. We care about the clothes you love. Since the beginning, our customers have trusted Arrow with their dry cleaning, and, over a century later, our commitment to your clothes and home textiles is as strong as ever.

Serving Kansas City
Since 1914

The Beginning of Arrow

Joseph Gershon started Arrow Fabricare Services in 1914, he called his business “Gershon Tailors” as the young man had fostered a strong reputation in Kansas City, MO, for his exceptional skills with needle and thread.

However, when Joseph opted to change the name a little later, he placed the word “Arrow” in the title as it was an extremely popular shirt brand at the time. Joseph’s brother, a shirt salesman, had suggested the name and it just seemed to fit well. Now, 100 years later, the name is still a perfect match.


In 1980 Arrow added on a 2,400 square foot vault for storing furs.

In 1994, as the business continued to grow and expand, Arrow added another 4,000 square feet of space to its distribution and check-in area to accommodate its expanding retail routes.

A decade later, the company added another 6,300 sq. ft. to its leather and fur department. The Gershons also purchased Blanc Plume Fine French Laundry which now houses the fire restoration division of the company. Overall, Arrow’s resources are divided into two buildings totaling over 44,000 square feet in area. The company also has as many as 80 employees, depending on the season.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It.

Here's what our KC customers are saying!

Hands down, the most knowledgeable, thorough, and helpful dry cleaners I've ever used. I've taken them a few hopeless vintage items and they never just say "nope, nothing can be done." They will think outside the box, troubleshoot with you, and even call you later with additional ideas. My dream dry cleaner 💕💕💕

Arrow completely restored a 40 year-old Burberry scarf that was a gift from my deceased mother. Moths had somehow gotten to the scarf, leaving half a dozen holes. I'm not at all exaggerating when I say that the repair was astonishing. Such care and skill! I would trust Arrow with any kind of fabric work. In addition to their obvious skill, the staff are super friendly.

Had Arrow clean my outdoor cushions. Awesome experience from start to finish. Customer service was wonderful everything came back on time and the cushions look brand new again!

This place knows how to clean anything and make it look perfect. I just took a pair of pants that I love with a huge stain and they made it look like new. Highly recommend.
