    Max Cleaners in Fairfax County has closed its doors, with several customers' belongings locked inside.

    Max Cleaners in Fairfax County suddenly closed its doors for good on Friday -- with dozens of customers' clothes still inside.

    Several angry customers arrived at the dry cleaner on Friday to find a notice of their closing and all of their items still locked inside.

    Patrons who frequent the cleaners say that even in the past week they were not warned of the store's impending doom, and that the location always provided good service in the past.

    News4 has learned that the owner of the cleaners, Sung Man Kim, is currently being sued by the building's owner and was evicted from the building Friday. Sources say that Friday night, Kim is expected to begin moving the clothes to another one of his dry cleaning businesses, McLean Super Cleaners at 6263 Old Dominion Drive.

    Kim's son told News4 that he promises customers will be able to get their clothes back.

    Fairfax County has urged anyone who has items locked inside the cleaners to call Fairfax County Consumer Affairs at 703-222-8435 or file a complaint online on their website here.
