Des Moines dry cleaner will close after 68 years on Ingersoll


Colonial Cleaners plans to close next week after 68 years near the corner of 19th Street and Ingersoll Avenue, the Des Moines Register reportedColonial lost its lease after the property and a neighboring lot were sold to new owners who want to redevelop the land, Nancy Hotchkiss, a worker and owner Tim Duncan’s girlfriend, told the Register. Des Moines developer Jake Christensen bought the property last year and is negotiating with a business that plans to buy and redevelop it. The Des Moines Board of Adjustment granted Christensen a variance to raze the Colonial Cleaners building and add a second story to the building next door at 1922 Ingersoll Ave. The request stated the new building could house a financial institution.
