A new laundromat has tumbled into Warkworth at The Grange and it is the first local laundromat to open 24 hours a day, offering night owls an opportunity to do their laundry.
Owner Jason Xie says he founded the business by accident. He spotted the opportunity when he stopped in for a kebab one day, on his way from Whangarei to Auckland.
He runs a fish and chip shop in Whangarei, which he says is long hours and hard on the body and the new laundry business will allow him to take a step back.
Working in a kitchen around a deep fryer, Jason knows the value of a good washing machine.
He says he has a washing machine at home but has always used laundromats for tough jobs, as well as bulk loads like bedding.
The laundromat is self-service with eftpos machines connected to each of the washers and dryers.
The washing machines range in capacity from 8kg to 28kg.
