Dull and dreary wash days were forgotten on Sunday at Bubbles Laundromat new
Northampton store when they celebrated the opening with a swinging 50’s launch party. And I had the honour of attending that launch party!
I never thought I would find myself attending an event for a laundromat. When I think of a laundromat or launderette, I can't help but think of the one in EastEnders. The dull, dreary, Dot Branning behind a counter smoking like a chimney type.
But that's where Bubbles Laundromat are literally washing away that stereotype, with their brand new bright, bubbly, retro-themed 50's laundromat, to add to their existing branches in Bletchley and Wolverton.
Bubbles Laundromat makes doing the laundry look glamorous. Gone are the days that laundry is boring because the ladies at Bubbles Laundromat are there to assist 7 days a week.
It's particularly useful to know a place like this exists, as one day, I will be in my own place and I may not always have time to do my own washing around the busy life I lead.
Therefore, it's a perfect solution for anyone who leads a busy life and needs an extra pair of hands to help.
The event was incredibly well organised, the bubbles were literally being drunk, there was a huge Bubbles Laundromat cake for everyone to enjoy and the sun even made an appearance.
We were even treated to entertainment by the Candy Girls, who got everyone dancing and clapping away to their 50's rock and roll tunes.
Overall, I was really taken by surprise by the event and never thought I would have so much fun at a laundromat.
I love supporting local events and I am pleased to have been a part of this launch event.
For more information, see the general press release below on everything else that happened, including a visit from the mayor.
Located at 43 Oulton Rise, the Bubblettes were joined by local residents and Mayor Cllr Tony Ansell for a ribbon cutting ceremony to declare the bright and cheery premises open.
An afternoon of good, old-fashioned fun was had by all with live 50’s music from The Candy Girls, tasty treats while exploring the wonderful world of Bubbles.
