Even in the unusual times we are living in, we still need clean clothes. For many, the option of cleaning their clothes in their own homes is, indeed, not an option at all! This is when an “essential business” such as Jain’s Laundry on Route 44 in Johnston is so important, and so necessary.
Throughout this whole health scare, Jain’s Laundry has been open and doing “business as usual” the same consistent, meticulous and thorough way it has since it first opened its doors in 1993. Jain’s Laundry is owned and operated by Sripal and Kaushal Jain. They have been faithfully serving customers from across the city (and beyond) for 27 unbroken years. The Jain’s, who came here from India over 30 years ago, are the epitome of the American dream as they have worked tirelessly to build their family business and raise their young son.
That once “young son,” Akshay, is now a thriving PhD student in BioTechnology at Harvard University. He is also doing cancer research at nearby Dana-Farber Research Hospital. He is a true success story.
That “family business” has been modernized over the years, but most importantly, customers who do their wash here know they can depend on the familiar faces and integrity of Kaushal and Sripal. The Jain’s understand that in such a competitive environment as this, honesty and “keeping up with the times” really matter ~ and they really matter to them!
This summer, bring your laundry to Jain’s Laundry where Kaushal will wash, soften, dry, and even fold your laundry – all in one day. Besides the convenience of this great service, the .69 cents/pound price also covers the cost of the softener, bleach, soap and hangers! The math is simple enough – ten pounds of dirty clothes, dropped off in the morning and ready to go by day’s end – all for less than $7.00. Fifteen pounds of dirty clothes dropped off on the way to work and ready to go by dinner – all for under $11.00.
In addition to the wash-fold, same-day service offered by Kaushal, there is a room full of coin-operated washers and dryers for the “do-it-yourselfers”. If you don’t have enough quarters, no worries ~ there is a change machine that accepts up to a $20.00 bill available here.
There are large capacity machines available for all size loads, from 25 pounds to 65 pounds. The top loading machines are available here for only $2.00 per load compared to $2.50 in most other places. New state-of-the-art dryers are installed which are incredibly efficient, rotating both clockwise and counter-clockwise to prevent the bunching and twisting that can make drying uneven in conventional dryers.
Jain’s Laundry is found in the Plaza 44 shopping plaza on 39 Putnam Pike. It is open seven days each week - from 8 am to 9 pm, Monday through Friday, and 7 am to 8 pm on Saturday and Sunday. For more information about their services, call 401-231-7019.
