As of December 31, 2021, the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) no longer licenses Retail Laundries and will no longer accept new or renewal applications.

Local Law 80 of 2021 repealed the licensing requirement for Retail Laundries. This repeal does not impact the Industrial Laundry License or Industrial Laundry Delivery License

Even though Retail Laundries don't need a license anymore, businesses still need to comply with laws enforced by DCWP. Businesses must also continue to comply with other relevant federal, State, and City laws and rules.
