If you use Coin Wash & Dry on Divisadero and Fulton for your laundry needs, you'll need to make other arrangements for about a month or so. The business has recently changed hands, and new owner Tam To is giving the place a few upgrades.
To is currently in the process of installing more efficient, water-saving washers and dryers in the space, and he's also putting in energy-saving light bulbs to replace the older ones that have been there for years.
"We're making the place nicer, and more friendly to the environment," said To, who took over the business from its previous owners on March 1st. According to To, the prices will remain the same for any of the old machines left behind, but it might cost an extra quarter or so to use the newer models.
At the moment, To plans to reopen the business on April 1st.
As for next-door neighbor Stelladoro Pizza, we reported in December that the longtime slice shop had closed "until further notice," and was rumored to be gone for good. With no signs of movement from behind the covered windows, the latter just might be the case. A review of city data did not provide any information confirming or discounting rumors of a permanent closure, but we'll keep our eye on the space.
We'll plan to check back in when the Coin & Wash debuts its new-and-improved digs. Until then, you might want to head to Washboard Blues up the street on Eddy and Divisadero.
