Tim cleans up at new laundry


Queenstown ski racer Tim Cafe test drives the new and improved laundry service on Gorge Road. 

Owner Lew Gdanitz has relaunched the seven-day-a-week laundromat with a new 100cm plasma TV screen and couches for customers. Gdanitz, who spent about $100,000 on the upgrade, also plans to install some computers with Skype and video game machines. 

The relaunch comes about six weeks after smoke damage from a computer hard-drive meltdown prompted Gdanitz to temporarily close the service.
