Division 12 Councillor, Tony Latter, attended the opening saying it’s “fantastic to see new businesses open like 7 to 7 Laundrette”.

“Congratulations to the Kearns’, it was great to see the doors open and to celebrate with them,” he said.

Twenty-one-year-old director Harrison Kearns said the opening night was “a great success”, with a lot of customers coming in, in need of dry clothes aft er all the rain.

“We have a large 25kg washing and drying combo machine with state of the art technology, which has seen a great amount of use in this short time of being open”, he said.

“With winter coming around the corner, locals have also been washing their doonas and big blankets.”

Other machines on offer include 10kg washers, 15kg dryers and a special 15kg pet dedicated machine with drying and washing functions.

All machines are high tech, with Tap and Pay functions (as well as coins), and touch screens that guide the customers through the whole process.

There are also a variety of settings to ensure customers leave with the perfect wash. Harrison emphasised the value Cr Latter’s assistance had, saying it has been amazing having his full support from the start.

A Drop Off / Pick Up service is also going to be launched in coming weeks, offering washing, drying, folding and ironing services.

Harrison encourages everyone to come down and get their big washes in, helping support the new family business.

The facility is open seven days a week, from 7am to 7pm.
