Resurfacing Brake Discs

Does any shop in the Langford area resurface brake discs (ideally on Saturdays)? Lordco appears to have stopped.

These rotors are woth more like $80 - $150 a piece and resurfacing used to be $12 a rotor. I've also got three sets of rotors that probably need to be resurfaced. I guess I'll check Midas otherwise I'll take them in to Victoria Brake and Muffler as I used to do years ago.
