The pumps and awning at the Conoco station at 3600 S Big Bend Boulevard were removed on Tuesday. On Wednesday just the station remained. So far, no information to share on the plans.
The Big Bend Coin Laundry, next to the Conoco, at 3620 S. Big Bend Boulevard, is still in operation, while its replacement (Maplewood Wash House), at 3010 S. Big Bend is under construction. An employee with the general contractor said it might be finished in one or two months.
According to the new laundromat’s Facebook page, it will have 100-pound washers for ‘huge’ items and automatic doors, to get in and out of the building carrying big baskets.
While at the current laundromat location, two pinball machines have been added.
