JAMAICA, N.Y. — After 16 months of preparation and renovation, Gold Coin Laundry Equipment opened its new showroom and expanded parts department last week.
The showroom featuring fully operational Dexter washers and dryers is part of a 5,000-square-foot expansion that converted old, empty warehouse space, the distributor says.
Gold Coin President Douglas Pratt says the company had customers in mind while planning the expansion. “At times, our parts customers were crammed in at the counter. Now, with a total of 13,000 square feet to work with, that doesn’t happen; plus, we have more room to stock more items and disappoint fewer customers.”
Besides the Dexter equipment, Gold Coin now has room to display the Whirlpool line, plus ancillary products such as Vend-Rite soap venders, change machines by Standard Change-Makers, and a NATCO on-demand water heater. Customers can even try out Standard’s easyPAY kiosk.
Gold Coin has scheduled several events this year, including a March 28-29 grand opening, to show its customers the full potential of the equipment it sells.
The new showroom and expanded parts department is located next door to the distributor’s original location, 91-16 143rd St. in Jamaica.
