A new Bacolod laundry shop has just opened around the Brgy. Taculing area. It’s called Moe’s Laundry Lounge, basically because it is nice to lounge around here while waiting for your laundry to be done.

Bacolod Laundry Trend
Here in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines, more and more laundry shops are opening. I think we can attribute this to the fact that it’s kind of hard to find a trustworthy full-time help at home while hiring a laundry women can have a lot of inconveniences. A friend of mine has related the many horror stories she’s had with the laundry woman that has gone through her life, including debts and missing clothes.
Since most husbands and wives usually have full-time jobs now, nobody really has the time to keep on doing the laundry. Whatever free time the couple has, they would rather spend it with their children. Single working professionals, too, would not want to spend their days off washing and ironing when there’s so much of the world that they can explore.
Bacolod Laundry Shops
To answer this need, more and more laundry shops are opening here in Bacolod. They offer both self-service and drop-off laundry services. Your laundry gets washed, dried, and folded. These have saved so many Bacolodnons from their laundry woes.
Thankfully, Bacolod laundry shops are opening in many areas around the city, making it more convenient for people to go to the shop nearest them. The competition now is in the service, and of course, the price.
Moe’s Laundry Lounge
One of the newest players in the laundry industry is Moe’s Laundry Lounge. This Bacolod laundry shop is not just your ordinary wash-dry-fold shop. They have upped the ante by providing a more comfortable place for their patrons — they have created a lounge for their customers’ comfort!
Yes, Moe’s Laundry Lounge lives up to its name. It’s like a cafe style laundry shop where their customers can rest comfortably while waiting for their laundry to be finished. Just look at the clean and cozy interior.
Furthermore, Moe’s Laundry Lounge is located in the building beside the new building of the BIR in Brgy. Taculing. If you have business here, you can easily leave your laundry at the shop and do your business at the BIR. When you’re done, with your official affairs, you can just come back and pick up your laundry next door.
Moe’s Laundry Lounge Amenities
As its name suggests, Moe’s Laundry Lounge is a comfortable shop so it’s fully air conditioned and with nice seats. They have seven washers and seven dryers. Washing takes 38 minutes while drying finishes in 40 minutes. If you don’t know what to do, you can always ask the staff for assistance.
While waiting, you can sit back and relax in their comfortable lounge with throw pillows while surfing the net. Yes, they have free high-speed internet especially for their clients.
And the nice thing is, Moe’s Laundry Lounge has their own rest room. It’s just very convenient to have your laundry done there with all these amenities.
So even if there are many laundry shops around the city, Moe’s Laundry Shop has made their place different from the rest with the amenities that they have. Soon, they will be serving refreshments as well.
Young entrepreneurs Sebastian Gayosa and Mo (Justin) Abulaban are the brains behind Moe’s Laundry Lounge. The two young guys both graduated from the Enderun Colleges at McKinley Hill, Taguig in 2017 with a degree in International Hospitality Management.
When they visited Bacolod last year, they immediately saw an opportunity to open a cozy lounge laundry shop. Sebastian, whose family hails from Negros, invited Justin for a short visit, and both had to do their laundry in a self service facility where they had to wait for over an hour along with other customers because there was a shortage machines to use.
They immediately thought of the idea of doing laundry in a comfortable place where you can actually do more than just stare at the wall while waiting. For them, laundry need not be a chore that you will hate. Thus, came the birth of an entirely different laundry concept — Moe’s Laundry Lounge.
