SudShare Does Away With Dirty Laundry

NEWPORT NEWS—First there were rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. Next came food delivery services to help make meals more convenient. Now it’s laundry’s turn. SudShare is a national service that sends a “Sudster” to people’s home or office to pick up their dirty laundry, then delivers it back fresh and clean. And it’s available right here in Hampton Roads.

“Everybody is looking for gig economy jobs, right?” said Nichole Matthews, a Sudster based in Newport News. “I’m trying to start my regular business and go to college, so I needed something flexible. I looked into other local services and thought maybe I could do DoorDash or Uber, or something else like that, but none of those things seemed quite what I wanted to do. When I learned about SudShare, I thought, ‘Hey, I have a washer and dryer at home and my car doesn’t have to be a specific make or model,’ so I looked into it further.”

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
