Dexter Laundry Begins Construction on New Laundromat and Retail Space

Dexter Laundry recently began construction on a new state-of-the-art self-service laundry on Burlington Ave in Fairfield.  The 6,000 sq. ft. building will include the laundry as well as accommodate additional retail outlets.

“We are excited to bring a new facility and retail space to Fairfield.  The corner of Burlington and 4th Ave. has been a self-service laundry for over 50 years. We want this location to better serve the community plus highlight Dexter equipment made right here in Fairfield,” states Andrew Kretz, President & CEO of Dexter Apache Holdings.

The laundry will occupy 3,000 sq. ft and serve as a showcase store for Dexter’s worldwide network of commercial laundry distributors and service technicians.

“We routinely host customers from around the globe; a functioning showcase store will allow us to display our products and train our customers on best installation practices and service techniques,” says Craig Kirchner, President of Dexter Laundry.

The remaining 3,000 sq. ft. can accommodate one or two future tenants, including the option of a drive-up window.  “The new building will be one of the most attractive in town, giving our community something to be proud of and potentially attract new businesses to Fairfield,” explains Kirchner.

Fairfield Economic Development Association’s, Executive Director, Joshua Laraby says, “Dexter Laundry continues to give back to Fairfield and their further investment of this stunning new facility in our community is very exciting. This new center will not only be a globally visited demonstration site for their customers and a state-of-the-art laundromat for the public, but it will also add to Fairfield’s portfolio of available retail space. This will be helpful in attracting new business to Fairfield.”

The project is expected to be complete in the spring of 2019.  The current laundry will remain open during construction and will later become additional parking once construction of the new facility is complete.
