THERE MIGHT BE a bit of a recovery in the economy, but our disposable income still ain’t what it used to be.

One business on the south side of Dublin is trying to help people out – and do some promotion, of course – by offering to clean your men’s or women’s suit for free, if you have a job interview coming up.

“We have these ideas for promotions from time to time, and we just thought we’d give this a go,” said John Murray, the owner of Cuffs and Collars dry cleaners in Sandyford.

Things are starting to pick up a bit, but people are still struggling out there.

The offer lasts until the end of this month, and Murray says he’ll be extending it “within reason.”

We won’t necessarily be demanding CVs at the door, but we won’t be doing wedding dresses for free either.
We’ll take people at face value.
