BLOOMINGTON — Twin City residents will soon have a new destination to clean their car.
Construction crews from Building Systems of Illinois in Decatur began foundation work earlier this month at a vacant lot near Main and Chestnut streets in Bloomington. The lot, located next to Quinn’s Shell Station, will be turned into Rainstorm Car Wash.
Owner Daniel Dougherty of Forsyth said he expects the business to open around Labor Day. The drive-through wash will be the fourth Rainstorm location. The chain already has two locations in Decatur and one in Champaign.
Dougherty said the other Rainstorm locations have been successful because speed is a top priority. The goal is to get customers in and out of the wash within minutes.
“We’re going to be extremely fast,” Dougherty said. “We will focus on getting people in and out. No one wants to wait in line.”
The business will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
