Iron Inn

Get straightened out at the Iron Inn!

Extracts from THE LEADER  Wednesday February 1 1995

SMOOTH out your laundry problems when you let Iron Inn take over the heated job of doing the ironing.

It's almost two years now since Gwen Newton invited Shane Ritchie to open her shop in Ruislip Manor. It was a new concept then, though it has been widely copied since. Even so Gwen is sure it is a winning formula, aiming for quality of results at a reasonable price.

Gwen is very careful who she accepts to iron customers' clothes, vetting each ironer carefully and following a strict training programme to ensure each bag of ironing is finished to exacting standards. The team is currently about 40 ironers but new ones are frequently added.

A bag contains about 15 to 20 items of clothes ready for ironing and will cost the customer 12.50. Every shirt, top, skirt or pair of trousers will be returned beautifully pressed and hung on a clothes hanger, all the T-shirts and smaller items will be carefully folded. Customers who have less items to be ironed can bring in a half bag (up to 10 items) for 6.50 or Iron Inn can quote a price for single items.

They can arrange for hems to be dry cleaned to a high standard which includes hand finishing , or they can offer a very quick repair service with most tasks completed by the next day. They're fully insured too, and there's a strict no-smoking policy wherever customers’ clothes are handled.

Restaurants, pubs, golf dubs, schools, and customers who are confined to home either temporarily or permanently all use the efficient collection and delivery service offered by Iron Inn. Other, customers appreciate the early opening hours, the shop welcomes customers from 7.30am on weekdays and does not close until 6pm. Saturday hours are 10am to 4pm. Many customers drop in their ironing on the way to work knowing it can usually be ready for collection the same evening or the next day.

There's a pick-up point at Stockley Park and other collections are made from office blocks throughout the area; ask about one from the office where you work-
