NEW PRICES ON FINISHED FAMILY BUNDLES OF LAUNDRY EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 30th Because of the steady advance in the cost of supplies and materials, excessive tax burdens and increased operating expenses generally, we today find our operating cost up at least 30% over a year ago. In order to maintain the high standards of work we have been giving our customers in Roanoke Rapids, Weldon and Em poria, we find it positively necessary to make a slight increase in the prices formerly charged for “Finished Family Bundles.” Effective December 30, the prices for all classes of work done by these three laundries will be as follows: Finished Family Bundles, 12 lbs for - - - $1.00 (All over 12 lbs. at 8c per lb.) Rough Dry, - minimum charge 50c - 5c per lb. Wet Wash, - minimum charge 50c - 4c per lb. Bachelor Bundles—List price, or - - 20c per lb. You will note prices on only one class of work has been adjusted—the Family Finish Bundle. This price increase amounts to only 2c per pound (just a few cents on the average bundle yet allows us a sufficient increase to take care of mounting costs of all commodities today, because of the volume of work we do. For your infor mation, price schedules in effect NOW, are still on an average of 25% LOWER than those charged by any other Laundry in North Carolina or Virginia. You will find these three laundries always anxious to serve you. We consider it simply a matter of fairness to our customers to maintain a price for our work that will enable us to pay fair wages to our employees, make prompt deliveries, maintain our plants and use only the best of materials and supplies, thereby safe-guarding your health and protection.
