    Here in the "Hampton Roads" area they are open most days. Most have certain days for discounts; like senior citizens, military and I also have one at the one for our hospital; three chances to save; how lucky am I. I got an antique machine for 27 w/my work discount.

    Good for you to find this machine. She should be pretty when you get her cleaned and polished. Great deal.
