former Spinners Laundromat
Washington, DC
Spinners Laundromat occupied the space when this photo was taken in 2010. There was still a Norge panel sign and a broken Norge Village globe sign. By 2014, the panel had either been covered up or removed. The band on the Norge Village globe sign had been replaced to advertise for "Metro PCS". [map]

Maitland Coin Laundry

The Star Deli Food Store now inhabits this former Norgetown. The band was adapted. There is another former Norgetown sign in St. Petersburg as well. [map]

The Norgetown sign at the Maitland Coin Laundry lives on. [map]

The Miami Norgetown's striped globe was on top of a pole in front of the store. This photo was taken in 2005. By 2012, the globe sign was gone.

The 4 Paws Oasis pet shop was previously a laundromat. This sign is still installed on the store's roof. For more, see this website. [map]

This former Norgetown globe stands over the adapted sign for Michael's Food Store. By 2014, the band on the Norge globe had been painted to read "Pizza". [map]

Norge Village Laundromat
Dalton, GA
former Georgia Dollar
Decatur, GA
Mary's Coin Laundry
Marietta, GA
This Norge Village Laundry globe sign in Dalton is mounted on the roof. Although the paint has faded and mostly fallen off, the original Norge lettering is still visible on the band around the middle. [map]

The Norge Village globe sign in Decatur was hidden behind the Georgia Dollar store sign. The building was vacant at that point when this photo was taken in 2009. By 2012, the Georgia Dollar sign had been removed and the band on the globe sign had been repainted to advertise for the new business below, the Atlanta Musicians Exchange. For more, see this website. [map]

The Norge Village globe sign at Mary's Coin Laundry could still revolve but the city sign ordinances will not allow it. By 2015, the place had been renamed the Lint N' Buttons Coin Laundry. The text panels were gone but the globe sign was still there. For more, see this website. [map]

former Norge Laundry & Cleaning Village
Coeur d'Alene, ID
The panel sign at this former Norge Laundry & Cleaning Village is still there but painted over a bit. The Norge Village globe sign that was there disappeared between 2007 and 2012. The business is now known as The Cleaners. [map]

Vanity Box [gone]
Chicago, IL
former Norge Laundry
Chicago, IL
Norge Village [gone]
DeKalb, IL
Shop N Save [gone]
Harvey, IL
The Vanity Box, a beauty salon, had adapted this sign. This photo is from 2008. The Norge Village globe sign was still there in 2011 but gone by 2014.

This other former Norge Village Laundry in Chicago was a boarded-up building when this photo was taken in 2009. By 2016, the building was in far better shape and the broken globe remained. [map]

The Norge Village laundromat was replaced with Inboden's Meat Market but the Norge Village globe sign remained for several years. It was one of the best preserved globes that I have seen. However, it disappeared in 2007.

The Shop N Save Norge Village globe sign was also pretty battered when this photo was taken in 2008. By 2012, it was gone.

Norge Laundry Village [gone]
Rockdale, IL
The Norge Laundry Village sign in Rockdale was an unusual shape. I had not seen one like this anywhere else. This photo is from 2009. By 2011, the sign was gone.

Ranburn Laundry & Cleaners
Gary, IN
Ranburn Laundry & Cleaners is a former Norge Village Laundry. This location has both a Norge Village globe sign and panel sign. By 2017, the place had closed. The owner was looking for a buyer for the signs. Later that year, the signs were still there but the left hand panel of the text sign was missing. The signs were still there in 2018 and the building was still vacant. [map]

Jackson's Cleaners [gone]
Gary, IN
Glen Park Cleaners
Gary, IN
Hobart Village Cleaners
Hobart, IN
Jackson's Cleaners featured a battered Norge Village globe on the roof. This photo is from 2009. In 2011, the globe was still there minus the band. By 2014, the laundromat and globe were gone.

Glen Park Cleaners's Norge Village globe sign is also installed on the roof. [map]

Hobart Village Cleaners has two Norge Village pole-mounted globe signs with one at each entrance to their lot. I don't know of any other locations that have two of these signs. [map]

Norge Village Laundry [gone]
Vincennes, IN
This Norge Village Laundry opened in 1962. Although there was no Norge Village globe sign here, there were tributes to it on signs inside and outside the store. It's safe to assume there was a Norge Village globe sign here originally. In 2014, a fire gutted the building and destroyed all the signs except for the pole sign. The building and remaining sign are gone now.
