Chamber Spotlight: Mena Laundry

Updated: Sep 21



The iconic Northside Laundromat was established fifty years ago by a young man named Jerry Montgomery right here in Polk County, located at 601 Hwy 71 N, Suite V, Mena, AR 71953. In his high school years, Jerry and his father began opening coin-operated laundromats and car washes, the first of their kind in all of Arkansas. Northside Laundromat was the largest, most centrally located washateria in the area, just down from the first Mena Wal-Mart. So, this long-standing local business is now approaching its 50th Anniversary!


Last year, Timothy and Rebeca Morren purchased Northside Laundromat and rebranded it: The Mena Laundry. After speaking with the previous two owners, the Morren family had a vision to upgrade our local community laundromat in stages, to include high-capacity commercial machines that are super-efficient; as well as upgrade the payment methods to include the traditional Quarter pay, but, to also add an ATM machine, and install mobile app software to accept M/C, Visa, AMEX, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Bitcoin, Cash App, Venmo App, and Bank transfer. Additional conveniences offered will include Self-Service machines, Automated Drop-off service, Full-Service Wash/Dry/Fold, and Pick-up/Delivery by electric car. This will give Mena residents modern time-saving features to get back their weekends and enjoy life!


As you see, Timothy and Rebeca aim to carry on the vision Mr. Montgomery started over 50 years ago when he founded this futuristic central laundry facility. We love to help the Mena/Polk County residents and will continue to offer first-class service with industry-leading commercial laundry equipment.
