There is a car wash in Petah Tikva, where they wash my car once in a while, and sometimes dare to nag me about waxing it. I liked the place because they provided sitting places and newspapers for clients, who are waiting while the interiors of their cars are being cleaned.
Today the car was there again, escorted by me.
This time, they branded themselves as “King Wash”, advertising kingly treatment for her majesty the car. For example, you can have your car prepared and beautified for sale. Their prices are also a bit higher.
This time, the sitting service included also a free hot drink (such as coffee or hot chocolate).
As judged by someone, who cares about cleanliness of cars only due to social pressure, they did good but not perfect cleaning work.
- What next? A shopping mall (“canion”) organized around car washes, like the Cinema City mall between north Tel Aviv and Herzliya, which is first a place for seeing movies and then a mall?
- What would a Seinfeld skid about this have looked like?
- How would the days before Passover look like in such a place? What special perks would be provided to people waiting in the long and slow-moving queue?
