LG Debuts Laundry LoungeSeptember 9, 2011
LG, along with Coinmach Service Corp., debuted the first of what it expects will be a series of "Laundry Lounge" laundromats, featuring Internet access, HDTVs and state-of-the-art LG laundry products.
The first Laundry Lounge is located on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
"With this new concept, we're offering patrons a fresh experience by integrating key components of the home in public laundry venues, confirming the notion that life doesn't have to stop because you have to do laundry," Sam Kim, Appliance President for LG Electronics USA, said as part of the announcement.
"The Laundry Lounge concept offers a dual cost benefit to the business owner and customer with its Energy Star-rated machines, delivering powerful cleaning capabilities along with savings on water usage and energy costs."
