Expert Alterations & Repairs Service

It’s rare for every garment we love to fit us perfectly the first time we try it on. In fact, it’s quite common to buy something off the rack and find it doesn’t fit just right, whether that’s a pair of jeans or even an expensive suit. Considering also that fashion trends evolve, it’s only natural to want to make adjustments to embrace your style preferences.

At Great American Dry Cleaners & Alterations, we offer the finest and most reliable clothing repair & alterations services. If you have clothes that have not been worn for the longest time due to ill fit or damage, our professional tailors can turn them into timeless pieces.

Need a hem adjusted or a button replaced? Leave it all to our expert team!

I've been a customer of Great American Dry Cleaners for several years now and they stand out not only for their exceptional dry cleaning services but also for their outstanding customer service. When I had an issue with one of my orders, they were easy to reach and committed to fixing what happened. Their dedication to customer satisfaction is excellent. Their pick-up service is highly convenient, and the clothing is always perfectly washed and pressed. American Dry Cleaners is a top choice for quality dry cleaning.

Great little dry cleaner in El Cerrito. Gets the job done and goes above and beyond to help when possible. I dropped off some things and the estimated time of completion was a few days later than I needed but they managed to get it to me in time! While this is not necessarily guaranteed, I really appreciated the extra help. They also run good specials!
