Richard Gortian opened his first store on Saxer Ave in Springfield in 1959 and opened our current location in 1968. In addition to his two Springfield stores, he would go on to open stores in Drexel Hill, Secane, Philadelphia, Glenolden and Broomall. Along with his brother's and nephew's stores in Aston, Concordville and Ridley, Victory Cleaners would become the most trusted name in Delaware County.
Richard's wife, Rose, began managing our store here on Springfield Rd. in 1976. Her sharp wit combined with her love and dedication to the business made her a customer favorite for 35 years, until her retirement in 2011.
Both Springfield locations were sold after Richard's passing in 2014. The building on Saxer Ave has since become Saxer's Pub. The store on Springfield Rd. was reacquired by the family in 2017 and is now run by Richard and Rose's son Rich. Rich ran the location in Broomall for 10 years before leaving in 2006 to pursue other opportunities. He is excited to be back running the family business and is dedicated to giving the same great quality and service our customers have grown to love and expect.
