Take your laundry to 7/11 - but better do your knickers at home!

Take your laundry to 7/11 - but better do your knickers at home!

Convenience store 7/11 are rolling out yet another new service in Bangkok this week - laundry and dry cleaning.

 

The 24 hour service is expected to expand up-country in the middle of next year. 

 

But price lists posted in shops itemized only certain things creating confusion about what laundry might be turned down.

 

Customers can bring their clothes and shoes in for the relevant laundry and dry cleaning. They can collect next day.

 

If items are not collected within three days an SMS is sent and there is home delivery. (It was not specified in the Spring News Network if that would involve a surcharge). 

 

Signs in English proclaim "Wash-Dryer-Iron" a translation of "sak-ob-reet" that means laundry.

 

Another promotes "dryclean" or sak-haeng in Thai. 

 

A high quality regulated service is guaranteed. Spring News called it a bright idea that is a collaboration between CP All the owners of 7/11 and Cleanmate Co Ltd who will offer the service. 

 

Example prices for laundry with the promotion price in brackets are:

 

Shirts, Towels, Jeans:   30 (27)

Bed sheets:                  150 (135)

Duvets and all covers:  349 (314)

 

For dry cleaning:

 

Shirts                            110 (99)

Sneakers                      350 (314)

Leather jackets and  

Overcoats                     450 (405)

 

Other more personal items such as underwear were not listed.

 

The 7/11 laundry is now includes Asoke, Silom Soi 9, Din Daeng and Viphawadee Soi 64. Some 80% of 7/11s will have the service in the New Year.  

 

The service will reach the provinces in the middle of 2019 said a press statement.  

 

Thaivisa notes that the ubiquitous 7/11 stores in Thailand led the way in offering services like bill payments and ready meals.

 

The store is constantly looking at new services such as doing government business.  

 

A famous Thaivisa April 1st spoof some years ago claimed that the store was offering 90 day reporting.  Years on Thaivisa  continues to receive search inquiries and social media messages asking if that was really true.

Then they should review the banning of draft beers there, would love to have a pint while waiting for my laundry to be done 🙂

 

Can we also have maybe a kid's club with some bouncing castle, a food court, a coffee wifi corner, a carwash outside so they can clean my car while I do the laundry and the beer.

Maybe a music band in the evening as well...

 

Rented room in the future as well, so we don't need to go out and all live in happiness under CP umbrella??

 

"Then they should review the banning of draft beers there, would love to have a pint while waiting for my laundry to be done"

 

So your going to hang round for 24 hours. bring a few mates, sit on the floor and drink between 12 and 2 and from 5 pm to ...  great.

I'm becoming irratated standing in line behind people paying bills. I've literally dropped my basket and walked out, not that the frazzled, underpaid clerks that circulate thru weekly care at all..

They will lose money having to launder my thunderbags. My missus refuses to touch them. She takes them to the wash tub on a long bamboo pole and drops them straight into disinfectant. Can't blame her.

At those prices I definitely give it a miss, as they are 50% higher than laundry express in pattaya, which isn't the cheapest around either

Following your post shares of CP have dropped by 25%, the SET are to set up a committee to investigate.

They should, this mammoth has way too much power to control markets, and kill competition ultimately meaning it can control products and prices. it should never have been allowed to gain this much power and control and I'm surprised that Dr Somkid and previous governments allowed this to happen.

In Chiang Mai there are "Laundry" signs all over, with the going rate being 40 BHT per kilo (no ironing for that rate).

 

Some are same day, some are next day.
