K-Wash: Kmart To Offer Laundry Services

K-Wash: Kmart To Offer Laundry Services

Kmart will be rolling out an unusual test program this June.

Kmart has announced an unusual test program they will be rolling out at one of their locations in Iowa City this June.

Shoppers there will now be able to do their laundry at an in-store laundromat named K-Wash. They will also offer drop off service and free WiFi.

American Coin-op explains more:

The Laundromat, which will be located in the store’s former auto-center space, will have its own storefront and access to the store. Customers can shop online during their wait by using a website set up in Kwash. Online orders can be picked up in the store an hour after the purchase. There will also be a full-service Kmart register in the Laundromat. Laundry customers can purchase items in Kmart and get them rung up in the Laundromat, thus avoiding the sales-and-service area.

A soft open is planned within the next week.
