Questions on reputable cleaners

Ok, so I want to establish a relationship with a good cleaners in my area. I am interested in what I should look for in a dry cleaning service, and questions I should ask of them. Is it important that they clean the clothes in house, rather than sending them out? Should I worry about what process they use and/or the chemicals? Would it be better to have one that does alterations also? These are a few questions that come to mind but I don't even know if they are important or are there other issues I should be concerned with too? If some of you could provide your wisdom and insight into the situation it would be greatly appreciated. To provide a bit more info I live in the Harrisburg/Lancaster PA area so I doubt there are really any upscale or renowned cleaners here. There is a "drive-thru" cleaners right across the street from my apartment that provides same day service, but I am willing to drive out of my way for a reliable establishment. Thank you for any help.

I would try them out first and see what kind of job they do before entrusting them with cleaning any of your really precious clothing items. Shirts are particularly tricky, which in fact, I would encourage you to wash and iron yourself. I usually only use a dry cleaners to get out stains and the occasional pressing of suits (although you have to be careful with that too).
