Many longtime residents of Richmond have passed by this small business every day, but may not realize Hallmark Cleaners has been serving the community at the same location for an impressive 32 years.

We caught up with Kacey Kim, owner of Hallmark Cleaners at 12989 San Pablo Ave., for our latest Small Biz Boost segment. The hard-working Kim offers complete laundry services along with dry cleaning and alterations.

Kim told us she loves the weather and people in the Richmond area, saying she’s developed a strong network of friends in the community. She can find pretty much everything she needs in the region, particularly when it comes to shopping.

“I like to go to Cash&Carry, Big Lots, FoodMaxx, FoodCo., somethings like that,” she said.

Kim is a warm and welcoming presence in the community, so stop by and say hello sometime!
