Sooke Laundry held a grand opening on May 3.

Not your average laundromat

Grand opening of Sooke's newest laundromat draws rave reviews

Saturday was the grand opening at Sooke Laundry. According to this reporter, its slogan is “The finest laundromat in Canada” is stunningly accurate. If you visit them, you might think so too.

Gone is the yellow-beige ding that all is all-to familiar at laundromats; in its stead, you will find quiet stainless steel machines of varying sizes, a coffee corner, and original art gracing the walls.

According to Laundry Manager Julie Schutt, you can drop-off your laundry and have them do it for you, or do it yourself. They also provide dry-cleaning. Too boot, while you wait you can enjoy a lovely cuppa coffee at their Cafe Mat, brewed with beans from Victoria’s own roastery, Caffe Fantastico. Upstairs is where you will find the seamstress, who can provide alterations and tailoring.

They even have a schedule of events that include things like family time, singles night, open mic, knitting circle, Hockey Night in Canada, and NFL Sundays.

So even if you have laundry capabilities at your residence, it may well be worth your while to come and check out the finest laundromat in Canada.

Sooke Laundry promised to become a local hub.
