Louisville, KY
Norge Laundry & Cleaning Village
Hagerstown, MD
This Norgetown globe sign in Louisville was still there and reads "B. Klean Coin Laundry" although the building had been occupied by Dangerous Minds Tattoo & Barber Shop since around 2010. By 2015, the tattoo shop and the band around the middle of the globe were gone. Around 2018, the globe was gone.

The Hagerstown location has a flat plastic sign. This location has been vacant for many years but the sign remains. [map]

KD Sales [gone]
Kalamazoo, MI
St. Ignace Laundromat
St. Ignace, MI
KD Sales updated this Norge Village sign for their party supplies business. The laundromat left behind a Norge Village clock which has since been removed. The Norge Village globe sign remained in place even when KD Sales had moved across the street by 2012. However, by 2015, the sign was gone.

The St. Ignace Laundromat was no longer a Norge Village but kept the sign. In 2017, the business closed and the new owner was trying to sell or get rid of the sign. However, it looks like the globe might be staying. The building now houses Harbor Hope Coffee. The text panel was replaced but the globe sign is still there. [map]

This battered Norge Village Laundry sign in Detroit stands on a vacant lot. [map]

This striped Norgetown globe was installed at the Washboard Coin Laundry when this photo was taken. It is the only Norge Ball that was still lit and spinning. The bearings were replaced around 2007 but it has the original motor. Around 2018, the laundromat closed and U.P. Pawn moved into the building. The sign still spins and is lit at night. [map]

This Norgetown Cleaners was doing business as Park Place Cleaners when this photo was taken in 2011. The building has been vacant since later that year but the sign remains. [map]

There was also a Norge Village sign in Allen Park, MI.

The Wondermat sign and laundry in Maplewood were from 1961. This photo is from around 2001. By 2011, the sign was gone.

The Holiday Launderama probably had a Norge Village globe sign originally. I have not seen a double-decker plastic panel combination like this anywhere else. This photo is from 2010. By 2011, the top panel was missing and the bottom panel was badly broken. They were replaced with a new Holiday Launderama sign by 2013.

This Norge Village Laundry globe sign in Greensboro had been painted white. The business below was no longer a laundromat when this photo was taken in 2009. The flat sign was probably a painted over Norge plastic sign. The Norge Village globe sign was still there in 2014 but gone by 2015.

This Norge Home Appliances neon sign hung above the Richmond Upholstery shop when this photo was taken in 2009. By 2013, the sign was gone. There are similar signs in Grapeland, TX (gone?) and Milford, UT.

Little Falls, NJ
Video Palace
Tucumcari, NM
The Manchester Karate Studio has been here since 1984. The Norge Village Laundry globe sign is installed on the roof. [map]

The Norge Laundromat in Little Falls probably had a complementary globe sign at one time. The laundry had been closed for at least a few years. By 2017, a fitness center had moved in and the panel sign was gone.

The Video Palace updated the band around this Norge Village globe sign with the store's name at some point. The store has been closed for at least a few years. These photos are from 2012. [map]

The Fashion Care Corp. cleaners closed in 2011. Since that same year, the building has housed Futia's Tuxedo, Bridal & Prom Gowns. The Norge Village globe sign still remains. [map]

In addition to their laundromat signs, Norge also produced signs for appliance stores like this one at Sharkey's Stove Headquarters & Appliances. Sharkey's was gone but this sign was still there when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2012, the sign was gone.
