History of Diamond Dry Cleaners

Established 1948

Diamond Dry Cleaners was originally established as Modern Way Dry Cleaners in 1938 in Napier by Dave and Jean Davidson. After returning from service in 1943 Dave renamed the business to Pacific Dry Cleaners. In 1948 this was sold and he established Diamond Dry Cleaners on 20th December in Hastings.

After Dave’s death in 1975 his two sons’ Bruce and Ian continued to expand the business.

Nearly 80 years on, Diamond Dry Cleaners continues to be a locally owned and operated family business with a strong commitment to the community.
