CITY Laundering Co. is proud to announce the acquisition of Spruce Linen Supply as of August 1st, 2022. Currently celebrating 116 years in business, CITY plans to build upon Spruce’s 57 years of servicing the Minneapolis-St Paul Metropolitan area.


“We are excited to partner with a multi-generational family business like Spruce.  The core value of putting the customers first aligns with CITY perfectly,” President of CITY, Colin Wetlaufer, said.


Family-owned and operated, CITY currently provides uniform rentals and linen services to businesses in Iowa, Minnesota, Eastern Nebraska and South Dakota, and Western Wisconsin.


“CITY has a long history and great reputation for providing outstanding customer service. It is important to us to transition our business to a company that would take good care of our employees and customers,” said Mike Russel and Gail Gust, previous Spruce owners. “We are confident that the customers are in good hands with CITY. In fact, we think they will be excited about some of the products, programs, and people that they will discover with CITY.”


Headquartered in Oelwein, IA, CITY continues to grow organically and through strategic acquisitions in the region.


“We welcome all of the Spruce accounts into the CITY family, and we look forward to continuing to grow in the market as we strive to be the region’s most responsive launderer,” Wetlaufer said.
