We have tried several along Marine Parade and East Coast Road and its always a week. We were told that they all go to the same place, therefore that's why it takes a week. Good luck and if you do find one that does, please post here. Thanks! :wink:

There is a place on the back end of orchard towers, second floor above Jasons that does next day service I believe. They charge a 50% premium I think. Their rates are reasonable. Normal turnaround is usually 3 days or so. Have a receipt somewhere at home that should have name and number if you are interested.

Good luck!

There are a couple on the 3rd floor of the Arcade shopping mall at Raffles Place downtown. They charge an extra buck or two for quick turnaround.

This runs by mom-and-son team and the son is a certified professional dry cleaner. They are quite popular among expats ie Europeans, Americans & Japanese in the River Valley neighbourhood.

"One day service - no extra charge" is written on their signage. Drop off before 11am will be ready by 6pm the following day. Express service for collection within 4 hrs is double the usage charge.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for all the suggestions! :)

Managed to find one nearby and am about to go and collect it. For future reference, it seems like a lot of them do provide express service - usually 100% surcharge for the same day and 50% for next day pickup.
