On Friday, September 16 at 1 p.m., the launderers will be celebrating this step toward around-the-clock customer service as well as hosting a celebration to honor their 70 years of business in Saratoga County, an impressive feat. The ceremony will be held in conjunction with the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce at Cudney’s 160 South Broadway location. There will be snacks, cake, a prize wheel full of gifts for those in attendance and lots of fun. “We would love for you to join us,” said Cudney’s President Joyce Ure.
James Cudney, a Saratoga native, entered the laundry business in 1952 when he rented a small location on Lake Avenue that boasted just four washing machines. He and one employee washed the garments and hung them to dry as there were no dryers on the premises. Later that same year, Jim invested in two dryers to help improve the process. The company grew over the years and now has a freestanding plant, four storefronts with 24/7 kiosks and drop boxes, two self-serve laundromats and a home and business delivery route. Cudney’s has been Saratoga’s eco-friendly dry cleaners since 1952. Their recent addition of the 24/7 kiosks and drop boxes has improved their services, as now customers can pick up and drop off any time, like an ATM for your clothing. And for those who want to limit personal contact, this addition provides a contactless option. Cudney’s staff is still able to assist during attendant hours.
