Cleaning and Pressing
(BY R. KENNETH EVANS)
Starting- with a cleaning shop the growth of the
business of John M. Miller, clothing, is indicative of
the possibilities for success which are available in
Hays to those who believe in working and giving
satisfactory service to their customers. Today Mr.
Miller operates one of the leading Gents' Furnish
ing establishments in Ellis county and enjoys a very
extensive cleaning and pressing business which thor
oughly covers Ellis county and into some sections of
Mr. Miller established this business in January,
1919, starting on a small scale and gradually' stock
ing up in keeping with the patronage which has been
accorded him. Today he carries a complete line of
men's furnishings including the celebrated Kuppen
heimer line of clothes, Florsheim shoes, Ide shirts,
Arrow collars,, interwoven hose, and many other na
tionally known lines which are recognized by the
well dressed man as the very best merchandise that
he can secure. Mr. Miller had this feature in mind
when he began putting in his stock realizing that if
he expected to develop a high class business that he
must carry the merchandise and to say that the man
who wishes to be well dressed will always find here
the very latest in style and fabric will in a measure
give the reader some idea of this business.
Another attractive feature of this business is the
tailoring line. In case the customer does not find just
what he wants in the way of ready-made clothing he
has hundreds of clothing samples to choose from and
Mr. Miller can secure in short time just the suit made
exactly as the customer wants. Being engaged in
this business for several years, measurement and fit
on tailored garments are always guaranteed.
A complete stock of high grade luggage includ
ing bags, suitcases, trunks, etc., is a part of the stock
how carried by Mr. Miller and in this department
his extensive buying connection enables him to get
any special designed luggage that may be desired.
The old adage that clothes do not make the man
is potentially true but it is also an absolute fact that
a man's personal appearance has much to do with
the success which is accorded him in fighting the
problems of the every-day business w7orld. For a
business man to neglect his appearance is courting
failure. One of the most completely equipped dry
cleaning plants to be found in "Western Kansas is a
feature of this business. The equipment in this de
partment includes the very best that the market af
fords including washers, extractors, steam boilers,
dry room and necessary equipment for a successful
operation of this business.
Two Hoffman steam pressing machines have
been installed by Mr. Miller to keep pace with the
, growth of his business. These machines are recog- '
nized as the acme of perfection for this class of
machine and guarantees the most satisfactory work.
A delivery truck is also a part of the equipment
which is used constantly in making deliveries and
calling for work. The patron of this institution liv
ing in Hays has but to call the institution on the tele
phone and the truck is immediately dispatched. In
fact, Mr. Miller has made a specialty of one day
service on cleaning and pressing, doing his cleaning
in the forenoon and pressing and . delivering in the
afternoon.. The garments are handled in a careful
manner and never are they subjected to severe wear
and tear. Buttons are sewed on, rips are repaired
and the garments are returned to the owner ready
for wear. The plant has; a capacity of forty suits
Mr. Miller also enjoys a very extensive p'arcel
post business from Ellis county and adjoining coun
ties and this is a business which is rapidly develop
ing.i Those living outside of Hays and who want
particular work done in cleaning and pressing will
do well to send their work in by parcel post. A nor
mal solicitor as well as a high school solicitor are em
ployed by Mr. Miller to keep him in touch with stu
dents who desire particular work. No fabrics are
too dainty to be handled by this institution in a thor
ough satisfactory manner.
With the employment of five men this is an in
stitution worthy of all the support that. can be ac
corded it as Mr. Miller has proven conclusively that
he understands the operation of an up to date place
of business of this kind.
