OXXO Care Cleaners stores, as essential services, are still open and operating, serving customers across South Florida and the U.S. OXXO is working on a reduced schedule, however. At present, our turnaround time for laundry and dry cleaning remains two days. Depending on demand, we may need to modify turnaround time to three to four days.
“All of us at OXXO are immensely grateful to everyone in the healthcare industry working so hard to get us through this difficult time,” said OXXO president and CEO Salomón Mishaan. “First responders, meaning everyone from ambulance paramedics to hospital service workers, need every bit of help we can give them. We are honored to be in a position to help make these people’s lives a tiny bit easier during this heartbreaking period with COVID-19.”
For years, OXXO has made “We Care” the company motto. There has never been a better time for the company to prove the depth of this feeling. OXXO wants participating locations to extend this offer to members of their communities who work in professions such as:
- Ambulance personnel
- Emergency medical technicians
- Police officers
- Military personnel
- All certified first responders
- Medical doctors & surgeons
- Nursing assistants
- Clinical nurse specialists
- Nurse practitioners
- Respiratory therapists
OXXO wants to take care of clothes without risk to our employees. To help with this, first responders and healthcare professional should bring their clothes in plastic bags separated and labeled as dry cleaning and laundry. This will allow easier, safer handling of garments. If you are a current OXXO customer, you can put your plastic bags inside our traditional yellow OXXO laundry pouch, which for the customers’ safety are washed and sanitized before returning them. If you are a new customer, please feel free to put you name, phone number, and email in the bag.
Philanthropy has always been a priority for OXXO. This is the best way we can think of at this time to give back to communities and help them as so many have helped and trusted us.
Regarding Ozone and Social Distancing
OXXO Care Cleaners recently implemented ozone and ultraviolet (UV) light treatment in its processes as a method for removing odors and germs from particularly troublesome garments, such as gym clothes. Fortunately, the same techniques that defeat bacteria, fungi, and protozoa in clothes can also inactivate viruses. This enhanced level of cleanliness can be critical at a time when containing a virus is so important to containing the outbreak’s spread and recurrence.
Another factor in OXXO’s favor at this time is how the company’s ATM-style system of 24-hour garment drop off and pick up assist in social distancing. Users need only open a street-facing machine slot and slide in their bag of clothes. When the clothes are cleaned and sterilized, they can return, pay for their order by card at the OXXO APP, and fetch their finished garments a moment later from the automated dispenser.
At a time when many people can only go outside their homes for essential services and face-to-face interaction is discouraged, OXXO’s system is the most hygienic, socially responsible dry-cleaning system available for preventing the spread of COVID-19.
