Great article! This brings back a lot of memories for me, and yes, it was eye opening too. I admit, I didn’t realize just how strong the industry still is after all this time. Despite its various challenges, it’s still alive.
I remember so many times during a laundry day when I was a kid, mom would do my grandmother’s laundry and I’d get a little stack of quarters. There was always something to play on those old machines. I grew up on between their glory days and their fading just before their Renaissance.
