We have finally brought our garment care expertise over to the North Shore! Our newest store is conveniently located at Shore City in Takapuna, on the Level 3 Rooftop across from Les Mills.
To celebrate our store opening we want to spread the word! Just mention Take20 and this blog post when dropping off your garments to receive $20 off your first order at our Takapuna store. We are open 7 days a week with customer service staff there to answer any questions you may have, so drop by anytime!
Whether you need your shirts laundered, your leathers cared for, your silks restored, or your wedding gown cleaned and preserved, we can be your new local!
Wedding season is officially upon us!
Here at Regal we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of beautiful gowns to clean and press for you. We understand the importance of getting your gown the best aftercare to ensure it is as beautiful as ever, for as long as possible. Feel free to bring your gown into any of our locations, where our customer service team will happily take them in.
Our specialist bridal team at our Newmarket location will swiftly inspect the gown head to toe to ensure the most effective clean. Each wedding gown is quoted after looking at the complexity, volume, soiling and any special requirements
We tailor each clean to fit the needs of your specific dress. Cleaning processes include the use of eco-friendly solutions which allows a greater range of decorated, beaded & delicate garments to be cleaned successfully with the least possible risk.
It is important you clean your dress after wearing as although it may look clean, over time marks that once went unnoticed will begin to yellow. Stains that have caramelized into fabric are much harder to tackle than new marks.
To top off our wedding service, we also offer two museum quality preservation options! You have the choice between muslin gown bag or museum quality storage box. Muslin gown bags are perfect for smaller, lighter gowns and wardrobe storage. Whereas the museum quality box is suited for bigger, more complex garments and shelf storage. The boxing option has your dress wrapped in acid free tissue paper and muslin fabric, which is then placed in a box and wrapped again in a muslin bag. Proper preservation will also slow down the aging process for your dress.
Preserve your gown, preserve your memories.
We’re finally here.
2018 has been nothing short of a whirlwind for the team here at Regal. To top it off we opened our brand new store in Takapuna! Rest assured that while your garments take the trip across the bridge to our specialists in Newmarket, you’ll no longer have to.
We wanted to make sure our new Takapuna had everything our customers need just like our other stores, which turned out to be a bit more tricky in terms of location hunting. Nevertheless, perseverance and diligence has allowed for the best location for our North Shore customers. You can find your new local at the top of Shore City with free parking and our amazing customer service team waiting for you directly across from Les Mills.
We encourage you to stop in, say hi and see the new store to tick another thing off the list just in time for Christmas!
It is our Ponsonby store’s first birthday, and we’re ready to celebrate!
Over the next two months, we are going to be running Picture Your Purchase, a giveaway where you can show us what you’re buying this summer! Then on December 15th we are going to give one lucky person a $1000 gift card for our Regal Drycleaners Ponsonby store.
If you like to shop in Ponsonby as much as we do, you can enter by taking a picture of your purchase and sending it through to us or tagging us online. We’re encouraging you to treat yourself and get ready for the party season. If you needed an excuse to go get that new outfit you’ve been eyeing up, consider this it! Not only will you have some amazing new outfits, you might get $1000 to go towards our garment care services to clean, restore and preserve your new clothes to help them survive the party season. Maybe you can finally justify getting that stunning white outfit that you know you can’t keep white without our help.
Here at Regal, we get to see all of the beautiful new season garments all year round. But what happens to them after the first couple of wears? The average woman wears just 20% of her wardrobe. Is 80% of your collection languishing at the back of the closet?
As supporters of the sustainable fashion industry (but also supporters of shopping!) we have decided to launch a charity initiative, The Care Label That Actually Cares. It is all about giving those unloved items a second life while also supporting a great cause, Dove Hospice.
In this new collaboration, garments can be dropped at any of our stores, and we will happily donate them to Dove Hospice. Even better, we will take garments in need of some TLC and spruce them up ready for their next home. We hope this will be an easy and guilt-free way to donate the old and make room for the new!
We hope to contribute what we can to the cause, minimise the wearable garments going to the landfills, and take your old clothes so you can make room for exciting new pieces! If you would like to know more about the great work Dove Hospice does, you can find out more at www.dovehospice.org.nz
So no more stuffed to the brim wardrobes, or guilty piles in the car boot waiting to go past a store or clothing bin! Bring your old, gently worn garments on your next trip to us, and we will take care of the rest at no cost.
