Gander's only laundromat has closed with little notice.

The owners of Midtown Laundry said they had to shut down because they weren't making enough money to justify keeping the business running.

The owners said they had about 100 regular monthly customers. But that amount of business wouldn't cover the necessary expense of upgrading their washing machines, dryers, and other equipment.

They said they tried to sell the business but there were no takers.

The washing machines and dryers are now for sale.
