Chicago-based chain extends free laundry offer for frontline workers

30 April 2020

Chicago-based CD One Price Cleaners has extended its offer of a free laundry service to healthcare workers, police, firefighters, and EMTs so that they can rest, refresh, and remain focused on serving the community, until the end of May.

So far, CD One Price Cleaners has cleaned 25,000 pounds of laundry for free for nearly 1,000 healthcare workers and first responders.

Since late March, the brand has been offering any front-line healthcare worker, police officer, firefighter, or EMT with a valid ID at participating stores a complimentary wash-and-fold laundry service, including 20 pounds of laundry sorted, washed, dried, and folded for free, weekly. This offer has now been extended through May 31.  

"This is the least our brand and franchise owners can do to continue to support those on the front lines," said co-founder and CEO Rafiq Karimi, Jr. "It's been and remains an honour to be able to give back to our community and, more importantly, allow our healthcare workers and first responders to remain focused on the health and well-being of our community."

As an essential service, all 36 CD One Price Cleaners have remained open and the brand has been dedicated to keeping its workforce and customers healthy. Many are offering access to 24/7 Express Drop Boxes that minimise contact and interaction with CD One staff and other customers. Additionally, some stores are offering curbside pickup to further minimize contact.

CD One Price Cleaners is based in suburban Chicago. Founded in 2001, the company operates 36 franchise and corporate-owned locations in the Midwest.
