Trio of mid-September events combine to draw more than 800 people

SOUTH GATE, Calif. — Commercial laundry equipment distributor PWS says all-time attendance records were “smashed” last month when more than 800 people attended its three Fall Sales in Redwood City, San Diego and South Gate.

Much of the excitement revolved around specials on Speed Queen equipment and parts from all manufacturers, PWS says, but the energy was magnified here in South Gate by the upcoming opening of the SpinCycle Laundry Lounge inside the distributor’s corporate headquarters.

The Laundromat will serve as a fully functioning vended laundry, as well as a showroom and test facility for the latest innovations in laundry equipment and operations.

Additionally, attendees of the three events were treated to free service schools and were able to converse with more than 15 industry vendors.

“It was so great to see customers in good spirits and truly enjoying the events,” says Brad Pollack, co-president of PWS. “We were so pleased with the turnout and will continue to invest in giving customers tools to help improve the bottom line of their Laundromats.”

Besides attendance, another all-time record was set in South Gate: customers enjoyed eating 511 In & Out burgers.
