We get our kicks being eyebrows deep in fabulous clothes that need a little bit of love. Which is WHY @reidsofhenley are thrilled to have been asked to SPONSOR the TOTE BAG at the @the_mama_do Fashion Re:Boot Event on Friday 11th May (6pm – 10pm) |

The first 100 peeps to saunter into the Sacred Heart Hall will be gifted with one of these fabulous #reidsofhenley #lessplastic tote bags (you’ll see our name on it!) •

If you’re feeling brave, take a selfie with said brilliant bag and insta it to death with the very short hashtag:
#wecleanclothesforatownthatlovestowearthem

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
It’s a fashion fair like no other.
Call it an amalgamation of pre-loved fashion, drinks and music – whats not to love?!

The Reids Team

In 2017 a crack commando unit was sent to Marlow by a Dry Cleaning expert for a specialist job no one else could solve. These #drycleaningexperts promptly proved they were dedicated to perfection from West Street in Marlow to the Henley-on-Thames underground. Today, still wanted by those with impeccable taste, they survive as soldiers of de-bobbling. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the Reids Team.

Ski wear. Sorted.

We’re thoroughly enjoying the Skeleton, Curling, Biathlon and all the other weird and wonderful Snow-based sports at this year’s Olympics. We joyously whooped when Lizzy Yarnold took gold for GB 🇬🇧 🥇 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

If you’re returning from your 🎿 hols don’t forget to drop your gear into the Henley or Marlow shop. We clean, re-proof, refresh and package it up so you’re all ready for next year’s snow shenanigans  ❄️

The History of Reids est. 1945

The Reid family have been in the drycleaning business since 1945 and Reids of Henley is now owned and run in its present form by the third generation of the family, Ian Reid. This year they celebrate their 25th year at their Reading Road site in the picturesque riverside town of Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire serving the well-heeled Henley community with their impeccable level of service and attention to detail.

Garment care and cleaning has been at the heart of the Reid family for years. Ian’s grandmother, Violet, worked in a military uniform factory as a garment finisher. His grandparents met when they worked in drycleaning shops in outer London, and then ran Warwick Drycleaners in Henley during the 60s and 70s.

Ian’s father, Joe followed in his father’s footsteps running drycleaning units in Ruislip and Barnet. This is where he met Kay, Ian’s mother. Kay and Joe opened their first shop together, Quality Cleaners in Chinnor, Buckinghamshire in 1981, where they continued to look after Henley clients through a collection and delivery service. Both his sisters also run drycleaning shops.

It’s pretty fair to say that the Reid family understand the drycleaning business. Ian has worked in the family business for as long as he can remember – Saturday boy and school holidays. When he was 18 the opportunity came up for the new Reading Road premises in Henley. The family had serviced the area for years so knew that the potential of locating there was good. Reid had to make the decision to either pursue his ambitions for accountancy or choose to join the family business. He chose drycleaning and has never looked back.
