Case study

Meet Rohit, Head of Operations at 1 Stop Wash in north London, a family-run business that’s been trading for 18 years.

Rohit had to close his dry cleaning business over the past two months because of the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. He’s based in King’s Cross, so relied on passing trade and word of mouth, as well as business wear from commuters. Recognising the behavioural change in his customers brought on by the lockdown, Rohit started accepting online orders and doing more home laundry, such as bedding and curtains. While he used to help busy commuters from all over the UK get their suits cleaned, Rohit recognised that he could now support his community maintain safe and hygienic households. As the government began easing restrictions, he just needed a way to let people know that his doors were opening again.

Rohit took advantage of our offer with Nextdoor and added 1 Stop Wash to the new coronavirus ‘Open for Business’ directory. This let his community know he was re-opening and was there to help, and instantly connected his business to local residents. Since he banked with us, Rohit could also create a free Local Deal, which reached over 50,000 prospective local customers to promote his business’s new bedding and home furnishings dry cleaning offer.

“Thanks to the Local Deal feature, I have been able to successfully re-open our family business in these trying times,” says Rohit. “In a matter of hours, I’ve had new customers reach out to place orders before we’ve even opened our doors.”
