Change continues moving its way through downtown Perham with the demolition of King Koin Laundromat on Nov. 19.

The laundromat was originally built by the Brad Kendrick family.

About four big bins full of scraps were to be hauled away following the demolition by North Central Inc. of Perham. The crew started at about 10 a.m. on Friday and worked through the afternoon.

A crew member on site said the former Pizza Ranch/Mexican restaurant next to the laundromat was slated for demolition next, probably on Monday.
