It depends on the store and it depends on how complex their setup
needs to be. Some locations will have a Linux server in an a/c
office. Some may also have computers in other locations. i.e. on
the assembly bay, or near the back of the store for a use by the
driver of a pickup & delivery route van. Both of which would be
in proximity to cleaning and pressing equipment.

We generally pull equipment from stores after 2 years, unless it
is a customer for whom money is tight in which case they might
keep the iron in use longer than that.
