An extensive delivery service is also undertaken by the vendors.The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. Website at http://www.thelaundry-rooms.co.uk/contact.html. We feel there is much scope to increase the turnover further by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered, together with increasing the deliveries and starting a self-service laundry service, key cutting repairs and clothing alterations or also to possibly sublet the basement.This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, an early viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is currently run by 2-part time members of staff. The ironing side is run separately by another team of 4.
