One of our oldest local businesses closes

Gulf Beach Cleaners has been in business since 1937, the same family all that time.

Originally a tailor shop, they started cleaning linens in the 1940s from the very first hotels that began appearing on St. Pete Beach. Shortly after that they purchased their first dry cleaning machine and opened the doors to the general public. Back then most businesses on the beach were named “Gulf Beach” something. This was one of the last to continue using Gulf Beach as part of their name.

One of the most endearing qualities about this business was the offer they had on their front window.
