I have about 5 sets of skis that need to be tuned/waxed. I live north of Charlotte. What is the most cost effective place to have that done?

Not to be snarky, but buy a $15 brick of wax and a $50 tuning kit on amazon, MUCH cheaper in the long run (unless you go once a year) , and there's a little zen to be had maintaining your own gear. Garage, some tunes, maybe a beer or some bourbon :) And you always have slick skis/boards when you step on the slopes without having to drive to the shop. It's super easy to do yourself. Maybe stay away from doing your own edges (or practice on old skis first), but the waxing part you cant screw up.

Ski Country Outdoors is where I have always taken mine and they have done a great job.

Good suggestions, I didn’t realize the tuning kits were so cheap. Certainly worth a try and more convenient than multiple trips to get them serviced. Thanks for the replies!
