Throughout the month of April we’ll be discounting a healthy 25% off a range of our laundry services and we start, of course, with the spring cleaning of your curtains, duvets and soft furnishings. It’s a chance to refresh all those things that have helped us feel comfortable throughout the chilly months but might be grubbier than usual due to lockdown.
Monarch Laundry began life as Monarch Laundrette. Opened in 1972 by the Bulinski family in premises on Gale Lane in York, we bought the business in 1995 and in 1998 moved to new premises at Clifton Moor. Relaunching as Monarch Laundry York from our larger site, we wanted to establish and grow as a trusted supplier of laundry and linen services to hotels, restaurants, holiday lets, schools and universities in and around York.
By 2000 we had opened our retail outlet at our Clifton Moor site that would allow us to add domestic laundry and dry cleaning to our services in response to growing demand. In 2017 we trialled and subsequently installed a pioneering new Aqueous Laundry Ozone System. Lighter on water and energy, the system kills 99.9% of all bacteria and viruses, leaving all laundered items medically clean simply through the power of oxygen.
In 2018 we were delighted to be a runner up in the UK Laundry Industry Awards for best small laundry category.
Just like 25 years ago, today, we are still working to deliver a great service to as many different people and sectors as we can.
Nothing fancy, just laundry: clean, fresh, pressed and prompt, time after time.
Here’s to the next 25 years of doing the laundry…
