WEST HAVEN, Aug. 18, 2023 — TR Laundromat, a new self-service laundry at 818 First Ave., celebrated its grand opening Friday, Aug. 18.

Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce executives snipped a blue ribbon with husband-wife owners Thomas and Reagin Carney to officially mark the event and welcome TR Laundromat to West Haven.

The Carneys said the family-owned laundromat has been completely renovated and features state-of-the-art stainless steel washers and driers to “meet all your laundry needs.”

“We have all-new, spacious machines designed to handle even the largest loads with efficiency and reliability,” said Thomas Carney, who has worked in the laundromat industry for 20 years as a sales representative and manager. “We also offer complimentary Wi-Fi.”

Carney added: “Our laundromat is the only establishment in the Greater New Haven area offering the innovative Huebsch Command app payment system, giving you the flexibility to pay via your phone or with coins. With our user-friendly touch controls, available in over 30 languages, operating our machines has never been easier.”

The morning ribbon-cutting was attended by chamber President Michael Moses, Director of Membership and Marketing Simon McDonald and member Robert Creigh, the vice president of Patriot Bank of Milford.

TR Laundromat, located off Interstate 95’s Exit 43, is based in a plaza with a convenience store and a Chinese restaurant. The laundry site, near Spring Street, was formerly occupied by Spotless Laundry.

The Carneys, who have four children, said the laundromat’s black-and-white sign is adorned with a gold triquetra, a triangular figure composed of three interlaced arcs. Also known as a Trinity knot, the emblem is the Celtic symbol for family.

Reagin Carney said the initials “TR” in the business’s name are a tribute to her late father, Thomas Reid. She said the initials also stand for Thomas and Reagin.

TR Laundromat is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, with the last wash at 9 p.m.
