Quality Wholesale can help you clean any mess BOUTTE – The location will soon be different, but the high level of products and service will still be the same at Quality Wholesale & Supply Inc. in Boutte. Manager Garrett Monti explained that in the coming weeks the shop will be moving, but only a few blocks down U.S. Highway 90, from 13352 U.S. 90 to 12715 U.S. 90, slightly closer to the I-310 interchange in Boutte. Monti said the store — and the accompanying website catalog — is a one-stop-shop for cleaning supplies. The company sells and leases janitorial equipment for any size job. The shop stocks everything from tile and grout cleaners for homeowners to heavy-duty carpet cleaners and sweepers for professional cleaning contractors. “We have knowledgeable sales people and a large selection of high quality products in one place,” Monti said. “We can handle whatever unique cleaning challenge a customer may have.” Quality Wholesale has been in oper-

ation since 1988. The retail store is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, contact Quality Wholesale and supply at 504-348-0924, or visit www.cleaningresource.com.
