The Crouse Family
Since1979, the Crouse family has helped Grande Prairie look its best.
When Mel and Bea Crouse bought into the One Hour Martinizing business in Towne Centre Mall in 1979, they probably didn’t expect the family business to still be going strong three generations later. But we know they would be proud of what their children and grandchildren have continued to build.
Taken over by Merv and Dawn Marie Crouse in 1994, Crouse’s has become a cornerstone in the community, and continues to be the leader in Grande Prairie’s dry cleaning industry.
We are proud to employ nearly 20 staff, most of whom have been with us for years. We are committed to excellence in customer service and innovation in technology and training to keep up with advances in textile and garment care.
Much has changed since 1979, but our commitment to garment care has not. Whether its a family heirloom wedding gown, or a pair of favourite coveralls, you can trust the family and staff at Crouse’s to take care of the clothes you wear.
Supporting our Community
Crouse’s is proud to do what we can to give back to the Grande Prairie community.
