SARATOGA SPRINGS — In order to thank customers for their long-time patronage, Feigenbaum Cleaners celebrated its 100th anniversary on Saturday, May 13 with cake and refreshments served at the company’s four local stores.

Feigenbaum’s was founded in May 1917 when Herman Feigenbaum and his young family moved upstate from New York City.

After opening a tailoring shop in Glens Falls, the family soon discovered there were no dry cleaners north of Albany at the time, so they added dry cleaning to the list of services they offered. Over the years the company expanded with delivery routes and stores to serve the greater Capital Region.

The Feigenbaums grew the business first in their home and then in a much larger facility they acquired in 1947, when their sons Louis and Bill returned from military service to join their parents in Feigenbaum Cleaners.

Today, Louis Feigenbaum’s son, Todd and his wife, Julie Frazer, operate the company along with their business partner, Bonnie Smith. The partners have four locations in Saratoga Springs, Wilton, Glens Falls, and Queensbury.

“For the past 100 years we’ve always worked hard to give our customers the best possible service,” said Todd Feigenbaum. “My father and grandfather believed in doing things the right way. My father was a highly skilled aircraft mechanic, who built fighter planes during WWII, and my grandfather was a tailor, who learned his trade in London. Both understood the importance of attention to details.”
