It was truly difficult for a lot of us to give up the beach to shower and dress for the Sunday evening festivities. Following a brief intermission, we benefited from a recently discovered talent of NCALCa€™s newest member (yep, he joined Sunday night), Alan Hargis, who is a licensed auctioneer. Chris Edwards, NCALC VP Governmental Affairs, reported that the DSCA Stakeholders Meeting was held June 2, 2011.

We started the show on one side of the convention center and decided to walk one aisle at a time, hoping to complete all the aisles in one day. Monday morning opened with industry icon, Sid Tuchman, receiving DLIa€™s Diamond Achievement Award.
The show floor contained about the same number of exhibitors, but many appeared to have reduced their booth space. A couple of hours later the front spawned another tornado over Wilson that lifted the roof off Exclusive Cleanersa€™ 8000-square-foot American Drycleanera„? magazinea€™s Grand Prize award-winning plant and collapsed one side wall onto Exclusivea€™s delivery vans. Fortunately, no one was injured in any of these severe weather issues, and all of the victims appear to have dodged the bullet in terms of loss or damage to customersa€™ goods, which can lead to loss of customer confidence.
It was truly difficult for a lot of us to give up the beach to shower and dress for the Sunday evening festivities.A However, the lure of the Presidenta€™s Reception and a magic show by Captain Jim the truly peg-legged pirate in the courtyard brought us all together for an entertaining hour prior to dinner. Metalprogetti had an all-in-one automatic sorting conveyor, bagging machine and racking.A Basically, once you loaded the garments onto the sorting conveyor, the conveyor sorted the garments for each order.

I plan to continue my education by attending classes at the Dry Cleaning and Laundry Institute beginning in July. The kiosk could automatically notify the customers when their orders were ready.A If for some reason the customer left the orders in the kiosk, the system would automatically reload the orders on the conveyor and send a message to the customer to let them know that the orders were left in the kiosk. Bang purchased One Hour Koretizing.A The good news is that none of the customersa€™ goods in either store were ruined.
