Hi and welcome to the Posh Wash site. We thank you for checking out our site and we are here to serve you. We are Edgar and Darlene Stricker and we started Posh Wash as a semi-retirement business in 2009. Edgar began a lifelong career of baking in Germany which culminated with a sixteen year career teaching in SAIT. Darlene perused a variety of career interests and still partakes in her passion of health and wellness after store business. We moved back to Medicine Hat after seven years in Calgary when Edgar retired. He wanted to do something in the service business as he enjoys meeting people and has a fun loving, approachable demeanour. The opportunity of a laundromat came up and it stirred a deep passion in Edgar to have a laundromat that provided exceptional and excellent customer service. The start-up was a family affair with our one daughter providing a professional upscale décor design, and our British son in law established the name when after hearing of our idea said “oh that sounds very posh…. Posh Wash.” Our second daughter helped us many times in many ways.
Within the first year the beautiful setting and our customer service atmosphere attracted a request from Sears for a North side Catalogue Depot which we provide and it has been a great addition. Later we were approached to be a UPS Depot which is established and serving customers.
In the early stages we were fortunate enough to employ Deborah in a part time position. Over the years she has been a huge factor in establishing the exceptional customer service, and has contributed much during her rise to manager. As manager she very helpful to customers and capable of running the store in a professional manner.
Linda our capable seamstress provides our customers with professional alterations and repairs in a friendly professional manner that aligns with the atmosphere of the store.
Because we are a Mom and Pop operation and don’t have big corporate costs we can accommodate your every need in laundry service at very competitive prices. Our laundry services cover a full range from your personal drop off laundry or dry cleaning to corporate coverall accounts. Our state of the art stainless, high efficiency washers clean your clothes beautifully for either a drop off or coin laundry service.
We use ecofriendly products as much as is possible. We use and sell the SmartKlean laundry ball. It washes clothes without soap. Using the same principal as soap it can clean just as good as detergent, it is much less expensive, uses cold water, there is no need for fabric softener and it has no harmful chemicals. You will love it and Mother Nature will thank you. In addition we do not use cleaning products to clean the store but rather no soap cleaning cloths.
We invite you to come in and meet our family. We promise you we will take care of your clothes professionally and to the best of our ability. We take a personal interest in all our customers and will make you feel like family.
Darlene & Edgar
