PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Following an extensive remodel, the local Laundromax laundromat on Cranston Street is hosting its official grand opening through July 9. The extended celebration includes a DJ, refreshments, and prizes each Saturday, and a “double your money” promotion and a chance to win cash.
The fully renovated 5,000-square-foot laundromat features a new interior layout, lighting, flooring and ceiling; high-speed Electrolux laundry equipment; 80-pound-capacity washers and dryers for family-sized laundry loads and bulky items; full-service drop-off wash/dry/fold for residential customers and area businesses; a state-of-the-art security system; and amenities that include free Wi-Fi, over-the-counter soap and laundry bag sales, massage chairs, and flatscreen TVs.
Laundromax District Manager Gina Griffin says the store is the first of 29 New England-based Laundromax locations to feature high-speed Series 6000 Electrolux Washers and Dryers.
“Our washers generate water extract speeds up to 450 G-force. This high spin speed removes more moisture from each load and shortens drying time,” she explains. “This allows customers to get through their laundry day much more quickly – saving them time and money.”
All told, the Providence laundromat is equipped with 50 washers and 56 dryers with capacities ranging from 20 to 83 pounds. Multiple cycle options include special programs for sanitizing laundry, or washing comforters and shoes.
To take advantage of the “double your money” promotion during the grand opening, customers simply load cash value onto their loyalty cards. Attendants will show customers how to use the ESD SmartCard system, which will automatically double the customer’s value. The loyalty cards are used to operate the self-service washers and dryers or to pay for full-service wash/dry/fold.
“It’s a great way for residential customers and businesses to get started with our wash/dry/fold service,” Griffin adds.
The fully attended laundromat is open from 6 a.m. to midnight daily.
