The coin-operated laundromat is moving less than two miles north.

The newest Subway location along Belair Road plans to hold a grand opening celebration on Feb. 1.
There were naysayers, but according to store manager Rick Saini, Perry Hall's third Subway location, along Belair Road near Safeway, is doing just fine.

The third location in Silver Spring Shopping Center is operated separately, Saini said. Multiple locations can coexist within a small area because the customers of each store represent "completely different demographics," he said. "Honeygo is new Perry Hall; Belair Road is old …
