QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A local laundromat is hoping to offer more than just a washer and dryer. 

The Scrub-A-Dub Laundromat near 4th and Cedar in Quincy is hoping to serve alcohol. Three gaming machines will also be available for customers. 

Owner Sherry Hills says she needs the extra revenue generated from the liquor sales and gaming machines in order to keep operations running. 

"The laundry mat down here is very, very needed," said Hills. "There's a lot of apartments within walking distance where the tenants don't have a washer and drying. The customer that just walked out the door, she's walking home. We need to keep this open for this neighborhood."

The city council has final say if liquor sales and gaming machines will be allowed at Hills' facility. 

If approved, Hills says she should have things up and running by later this year.
