Those B@$t@rd$!!!
I hate the drycleaner. I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate them.

Yeah, I know they're not responsible for buttons, belt buckles, decorations, faulty fabrics, stains, tears, defects, sequins, beads, or dirt. But when a sweater of mine has 6 buttons, do you think they could break them one at a time instead of FOUR AT A TIME???

I hate them. If there were anyone better, I'd go to them. I'm about to mail all my dry cleaning to my old boss in Salem, MA. Man, I never realized what a great dry cleaner she was. So meticulous and concerned about her customers. I almost miss working there.

I've been having a heck of a time with this issue myself. I was even willing to pay big bucks to have it done well but the company I used (Marvel) isn't that great at all. I got desperate and went to the 1.75 cleaners at the intersection of Randolph and New Hampshire, they are doing the job ok for now. I do have to stress that I want spot treatment each and every time.

Perhaps there is one closer to you?

It is the $1.75 drycleaner that has broken 95% of the buttons on all of my clothing.

I'd switch back to the expensive dry cleaners, but they did the same thing AND didn't get stains out.

Yeah. They really suck around here. I have tried most of those recommended by others and I am almost never happy. I had the same cleaner for a few years near my old job but the management changed and so did the service.

I once sent in a cardigan and it came back without buttons. Not a single one. They replaced them.

I think it's ridiculous that people put up signs about not being responsible for things and that automatically absolves them. Dry Cleaners most certainly should be responsible if they shuck the buttons off your sweater or destroy your hem.
