Flagstop Car Wash While Flagstop falls under “auto service and maintenance”, which does allow us to remain open (according to government mandates), we have made the decision to temporarily close in the best interest of public health and safety. All Flagstop locations will close from Wednesday, March 25 through at least Wednesday, April 8th. This decision does not come lightly. While we may be able to remain open, we do not feel it is what is best for our customers or our team at this moment. We will take the steps necessary to take care of our staff for the remainder of this two week period, and will make a decision no later than Monday, April 6th as to whether we will re-open. It is likely that when our business does re-open, we will be under limited hours of operation. To our valued RVA Wash Club members, we have automatically delayed all club payments by 14 days. For example, if you were due to be charged on April 1st you will not be charged until April 15th. If we do not re-open within two weeks we will push the payments out again accordingly. This is a fluid situation and we are monitoring it as closely as possible. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
