LEWISTON — Two years in the making and owner Billy Yasin is very proud to show off the new Washrite Laundromat at 77 Sabattus St. He purchased the building two years ago, gutted it and refurbished it for more than $100,000.

The fully automated laundromat has new washers and dryers, an ATM, a change machine and a laundry products vending machine. There’s a folding area and a sitting area with a wall-mounted TV. The laundromat has four washer sizes — 60-, 50-, 40- and 30-pound capacities.

Washrite Laundromat opened in early March and is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., offering a bright, clean area to the many apartment dwellers in the area.

Yasin and his family also own other businesses in Lewiston — Dave’s Place gas station on Sabattus Street, Lewiston Variety on College Street and Kim’s Kitchen on Russell Street.
