Couple opens St David’s laundry

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Husband and wife Greg and Sheena Smith have teamed up to open a new commercial laundry at Southside, St David’s.

EFY Linen Rentals and Laundry is located on Waller’s Point Road near Powell’s Marine in space that was formerly used for storage.

Mr Smith said his wife had her linen rental business for the past two years before they decided it made sense to expand into doing commercial laundry.

“We found a good space at Southside for a reasonable rent so we decided to open our business there,” said Mr Smith, who worked for BTC before opening the new business. “We have installed commercial washers, dryers and a flat press.”

Mr Smith said their clients now include hotels, guest houses and restaurants. They also do residential laundry and items such as comforters for customers.

A load of laundry washed and folded costs $1.75 per pound. The business is open seven days a week and has one full-time staff member and some part-time staff along with Mr Smith and his wife who work there full time.
