A Cleaner World and C.W. Alterations have opened a new store in Linville, providing customers with not only a more convenient location, but the opportunity to work closely with seamstresses Sharon Crump and Nicole Wagoner.

Crump and Wagoner have been working alterations for over 10 and seven years, respectively. For the past four years, the seamstresses have been doing alterations based at home for personal clients and customers of C.W. Alterations.

“We’re thankful for A Cleaner World for giving us this opportunity,” Crump said. “We’ve met a lot of new people and nice people, and quite a few we’ve done alterations for have followed us here.”

Bryan Cabler, manager at A Cleaner World, said they realized the great demand for dry cleaning and alternations, with customers driving to the Boone store from all over Avery County. “It got our attention, and over time we thought it would be great to add another location.”

In the past, as they were working from home, the seamstresses would have to talk with customers over the phone or occasionally arrange a meeting.

When deciding how to staff the new store, Cabler said it was an obvious decision to combine A Cleaner World with C.W. Alterations and include Crump and Wagoner at the new Linville location.

“It’s a much better service now that it’s all in one place,” Cabler said.

With the new public work space, Cabler said it provides a great opportunity to have fitting rooms and consult with customers face-to-face. It would not only be more accurate, but more responsive, and the items could have a quicker turnaround.

“We couldn’t possibly have better people for the job,” Cabler said.

A Cleaner World provides a wide variety of additional services such as rug cleaning, wedding and bridal services, formal wear, comforters and more.

The new Linville store is located in Linville Village at 3616 Mitchel Ave., Suite 3.
