In 1971, Lennie and Juanita Butcher built Apollo Cleaning Center in Maclan Plaza on East Jackson Street.  They wanted to provide the Macomb area with a fully attended, well maintained coin operated laundry that offered comfortable and pleasant surroundings and an economical drycleaning concept.  In 1988, their son Bill, and his wife, Sharon purchased the family business to carry on the family tradition.  In 1991, the business was extensively remodeled and the building expanded to provide for the addition of professional drycleaning services.


By 2000 they outgrew their space and moved their facility to its present location at 503 W. Jackson.  The new facility tripled the size of the professional drycleaning and laundry area and offered a drive up window.


In 2013 the laundry area was closed for approximately 3 weeks for extensive remodeling and installation of all new laundry equipment and the extereior was repainted.  


May 2015 the dry cleaning operations was closed and began operating the laundry facility as APOLLO COIN LAUNDRY.
