Calistoga laundromat re-opens under new management

Calistoga laundromat

The laundromat in Calistoga re-opened Nov. 20 after being closed for several weeks. 

Good news for Calistogans with laundry piling up: The town’s only laundromat has reopened as of Saturday.

The facility closed a few weeks ago due to a fire, but is now open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.

Mario Tamo and his family have taken over operation of the laundromat, which was previously managed by the Merchant family. Because the Merchants were not always available for hands-on maintenance, it made sense for the Tamos to take over, Mario said.

This will be the 18th laundromat that the Santa-Rosa based family business manages, Tamo said.

“We want to make it as accessible was we can, and be very hands-on,” he said.

Plans are in the works to eventually relocated the laundromat, with pending construction of the Veranda Hotel on the property, but Tamo said they will continue to operate it as-is until that time.
