Diamond Cleaners.

Owner: Mike and Dea Grober Address: 8210 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, 72207, 228-6100 Start-up date: January

Mike and Dea Grober recently opened Diamond Cleaners, a discount dry cleaning business in the Cantrell Heights Shopping Center.

Grober spent 12 years in Brazil as a project manager for Reynolds Aluminum Co. He returned to Arkansas three years ago as general manager for Quikrete Materials Co.

Grober's wife, Dea, a native of Brazil, manages the new business.

"We've tried other things," Grober says. "Once, we imported Brazilian sports cars and other |South American~ products."

A friend who owned a successful dry cleaning business elsewhere suggested a Little Rock dry cleaning business might be more lucrative.

"We charge $1.50 an item," Grober says. "No matter if it's a shirt, a dress, a sweater or whatever."

Clothes are guaranteed to be ready the next day.

Diamond Cleaners is open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The business may offer a delivery service in the near future.

Grober, who advertises in local newspapers, says expansion is a possibility.
