Pressbox
By The Editors / December 4, 2013 9:00 am

Things we love because they’re always open:

Jim’s Original. My Time Fitness. The Internet.

Add to that list: Pressbox, the dry-cleaning drop-off service that’s open 24/7, laundering now.

This is how a man who’s pressed for time gets his duds done.

With a homebase in Lakeview and locations across the city added weekly, Pressbox forgoes the counter clerk for a bank of automated, keyless-entry lockers.

To sign up, just text this magic number and you’re ready to go. Then swipe your credit card to access any of Pressbox’s locations, much like an ATM vestibule after-hours.

Place your dirties in an empty locker (check pricing here), lock it up with a four-digit pin, then text your locker number to Pressbox. The team will pick up your laundry, work their magic and return it within 48 hours. 

When your clothes are ready, you’ll receive a text with a new locker number and code. Pick-up is whenever you get around to it.

What you get? Fresh threads and a new laundry bag.

And more free time, unhampered.
