I'm confused.

Purple Tie does laundry at $1.69/lb (10 lb minimum, so $16.90 minimum) and also does pick-up at home.

How is this better?

Purple Tie doesn't have 24-hour turnaround and doesn't serve my office every day. It's not that hard to make sure I send an order while I still have several days' worth of clothes left, though.

I find this confusing. Do brick-and-mortar laundromats typically have <24hr turnarounds?

I have the impression it isn't common, though I've seen a few signs with offers like "in by 9, out by 5". https://getprim.com/FAQ#return says they commit to two days but their average return time is next day.
