Now open: Laundry Doctor

The Laundry Doctor, launched last summer, is opening in a handful of apartments near Lake Calhoun. The Minnesota company installs lockers in lobbies where residents can stash their clothes for dry clean or wash. Customers request pickup with an app, and turnaround time is 48 hours.

“It’s like the Uber of laundry,” said representative Bonnie Hanson.

Each order enters customers into contests to win local drinks, classes or gift cards.

“As dorky as this may be, we are trying to make it fun,” Hanson said.
