Ron, Congrats on the look of the store. It's amazing that your store went from 2,800 down to about 1,600 sq ft... that's similar to how we are doing it in SF. I'd love to hear how long before you plan to be positive on the location!
The CLA has done a great job over the past few decades lobbying for Sales Tax Exemptions. This is one area where the average laundromat owner benefits by saving thousands of dollars in taxes every year. What other organization does that for laundromat owners throughout the United States? None that I know of. The CLA is the ONE organization that every laundromat owner should join.
U.S. debaters throw in their two cents. News has re-sparked the debate over whether or not to phase out the U.S. penny. Domestically, we are losing much more by keeping the penny than are our neighbors to the north. A U.S. penny now costs a whopping 2.41 cents to make.
I thoroughly read the above white paper. It was a clear explanation by a more qualified person than most ... with the proper list of references to back up the facts that the author Aaron Klein presented. For the sake of our country & industry ... it is best to read the actual document & pay attention to other accurate presentations ... preferably on a format similar to C-Span in its whole that is presented as is & not spun either way.
