Adventures in weird business combos: Coin op laundry and payday loan
Every so often, usually in more (ahem) modestly incomed neighborhoods, you see them: businesses who offer weird and somewhat dubious combinations of services (my personal favorite of yore: The Quik Stop & Bail Bonds that used to be on South Federal). In an effort to highlight the brave practitioners of these frontiers of retail operation, we're launching a series devoted to them, starting with this combo at Colfax and Quebec that offers both a laundromat and payday loans -- effectively guaranteeing you will never run out of laundry quarters.
