[slideshow_deploy id=’62356′]

With nearly 68 years of service to the community, Vogue Cleaners has been a staple in Colusa County – and the only dry cleaners in town.

In 1946, Vogue Cleaners, located at 120 10th, opened its doors.

Kyoko and Jim Ishizaki were the third couple to take ownership of the dry cleaning business in 1997.

With Jim turning 80, and Kyoko 76, the couple said it was time to retire.

“With the economy down the last couple of years, it’s a good opportunity to retire,” said Kyoko Ishizaki.

“The people of Colusa County have been so friendly,” she said, “we’ve been so grateful.”

On July 31, the establishment closed its doors; returning all customers orders and having a special sale for items that were never claimed.

On Wednesday, July 30, the Colusa County Chamber of Commerce held a special ceremony for the business, honoring its service to the community.

“The Chamber of Commerce would like to present the Distinguished Community Service Award,” said Colusa County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Gary Teragawa.

“When I came to Colusa County in 2000, I was looking for a dry cleaners and Vogue was the only one in town; I am going to miss them,” said Teragawa in his speech.

A few dozen community members and the Ishizaki family attended the event.

After closing, the couple plans to spend time gardening, relaxing and enjoying their time at home.

“Thank you for your service to our community,” said Chamber President, Donna Phelan, “We wish you a happy retirement.”

“We appreciate all of our customers and their support over the years,” Kyoko Ishizaki added.
