Designed in the USA, manufactured in Japan and sold at your local JC Penney’s Store. Those were the days. Retail stores like JC Penney, Wards, Sears, etc all contracted other manufactures to make or re-badge models to be sold in their stores. What this means for you today is that you can get a machine made by one of the large manufactures for a fraction of the cost because it has what is a relatively unknown name in the industry on the front of it. Not a bad way to score a great machine for an even better price.
Case is included with sale.
