One more laundromat for the city of Geneva.
Chuck Hinkle of Rochester has opened his second Laundry Depot in the Town & Country Plaza on Hamilton Street, according to the Finger Lakes Times.
He purchased the former T&C Laundromat. It was owned by Paul Morrin. The sale happened in October, and after the transaction was complete – he shut it down.
The place was gutted, and brand new equipment brought inside.
“The plaza laundromat is some 3,600 square feet in size, about twice the size of my Waterloo laundry depot,” Hinkle told the Times. “I shut it down and basically gutted the inside and reopened it with new washing machines, new dryers, a new customer lounge area with new vending machines, free WiFi, washing and folding service and a new cashless payment system.”
Altogether $350,000 was spent on the renovation. But prices are going down slightly for full-service laundry, and staying the same on self-service.
“In the process of renovation, I found four gas leaks, water pipe leaks and a need for electrical upgrades, plus new dryer venting. I fixed all that. I put in a new floor and have relocated the washers and dryer on one side with the customer lounge on the other side,” Hinkle told the Times.
