Most houses come with a washing machine and clothing dryer that you may use whenever you want. Apartment buildings usually provide a laundry room with numerous coin or card operated machines. Each machine will cost approximately one to two dollars per use. Ask your landlord about the cost of the machines and how to use them.
If you do not have laundry machines in your house or apartment, you can go to a laundromat. Laundromats have numerous coin or card -operated washing machines and dryers. They usually have ironing equipment and dry cleaning services too. Machines cost approximately one to three dollars per use. You can keep the cost low by bringing your own soap and fabric softener to the laundromat.
These are a few laundromats in London:
|The Laundry Café
590 Oxford St. E. (at Adelaide St.)
|Tommy Sud’s Laundry & Cafe
79 Commissioners Road West
|Comet Laundrynet Cafe
120 York Street
Used Furniture Stores
Many stores sell used furniture in London. Generally, you must move the furniture yourself but ask about delivery options just in case. Return to the store later if you do not find what you are looking for because new items arrive every week. The following stores usually carry used furniture:
1500 Dundas Street
Sherwood Forest Mall, 1225 Wonderland Rd. N
1345 Huron Street
Used Furniture from Other Students
Another great place to find cheap furniture is from students who are moving at the end of the school year in late April to early May. Students usually advertise what they have for sale on posters around campus or in the campus newspapers. Many students will even put unwanted furniture at the end of their lawn to be collected by other people for free (always ask before taking unless there is a "free" sign).
Students also advertise items they want to sell on Western’s Off-Campus Housing Garage Sale page.
Some furniture stores in London offer new furniture at discounted prices. Ask a sales person about delivery options—some stores offer free delivery! Here are a few options:
|Sears Outlet Store
530 Oxford Street West
White Oaks Mall, 1105 Wellington Road South
|The Sofa Gallery
1350 Fanshawe Park Road West
50 North Centre RD
