Blue Sky Cleaners, a Seattle-based startup promising nontoxic dry-cleaning methods, said today it has bought Four Seasons Cleaners.

Four Seasons gives Blue Sky two additional retail locations in the Seattle area, for a combined company total of three. With two more locations scheduled to open by the end of this month, Blue Sky will have five retail outlets and 38 employees throughout the area.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Blue Sky will maintain a separate Four Seasons Web site as well as its pickup and delivery service, though the newly combined company will operate under the “Blue Sky” name. No layoffs are planned,according to a Blue Sky spokesman.

Blue Sky also said Four Seasons has switched over to its liquid-carbon-dioxide and wet-cleaning technologies, touted as nontoxic alternatives to other dry-cleaning methods.
