I had a friend getting married in a week, and I offered to have her pre-owned gown cleaned. Both the manager of Pratt Abbott on Forest Ave Portland, Maine and the sales assistant were exceptionally helpful and made it possible. They BOTH went the "extra mile" ..... the dress was brought in on Saturday and ready on Monday morning!Sent on 08/27/2014
The Bride looked beautiful in a pristine gown with beaded bodice...surely it took great care to clean it and have it ready. I can ALWAYS count on Pratt Abbott to do a fantastic and professional job with a friendly atmosphere!
Thanks so much!

Color restored a 70 year old dress. Amazing work, beautiful craftsmanship, and all at an amazing price for industry standards. Even if you live a distance from them - go for it. I did and had no problem with communication and delivery.Sent on 06/07/2018
