NEW ULM — The New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce Willkommen Committee held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for B&J Laundromat on 506 Center St.

The laundromat re-opened on July 2 after 10 months of interior repairs following a fire occurring August 30, 2018.

B&J stands for the owners Bruce and Julie Buntjer. The interior of the B&J Laundromat is brand new with a modern paint style and new washers and dryers.

Julie Buntjer told the Willkommen Committee the new washers were more efficient, using less water and require less detergent.

The new facility includes an updated security system. The cameras for the previous security system were adequate to identify the arsonist responsible for last year’s fire, but a new system gives laundromat users greater peace of mind.
