“We’re extremely excited to bring a sustainable, non-toxic way of dry cleaning clothes to Oxford,” said John Edwards, the owner of Lapels Dry Cleaning of Oxford. “When we open our doors on October 8th, Lapels Dry Cleaning will become the only dry cleaner in Oxford using a 100 percent environmentally non-toxic cleaning solution.”
Opening Lapels Dry Cleaning of Oxford represents a homecoming for Edwards.

Edwards will have company in fulfilling his dream of owning his own business. He will be joined in running the business by his fiancé, Ali.

It was then I thought about owning a business of my own one day and being the one doing the interviewing,” said Edwards. “It took a little longer than anticipated, but I’m so happy to achieve this goal and combine it with two wonderful things: coming home to Oxford and getting married.”
John and Ali have a November 18th wedding planned.
