    I work downtown and don't get back in the neighborhood until well after 5 in the evening, so I waited until this weekend to swing by and check out Victory Camera. I have to say I was pretty excited and then I got there..... it was closed. Hours are Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm. I was pretty bummed out when I saw that. I don't know if I will ever make it in there if that's the case. I understand it's probably a one man shop and it is just getting started so maybe it will change in the future.

    On a positive note, I looked through the window and saw a fully stocked cooler of film, and some cameras on the shelves. There was also some other accessory gear going in too. It still looks like it is being stocked and set up so I am assuming it will have even more stuff as time goes on.

    If you have time during the week, swing by and check it out but don't plan a weekend trip yet.

    If I might suggest, closing shop on Monday and opening on Saturday might be a better strategy.
    If traditional photography was more of a mainstream thing, more business customers would patronize the business during the week but, since traditional photography is basically an avocation, these days, I believe opening on Saturday would invite more business from people who couldn't visit M/F-9/5. The loss of one weekday would, hopefully, be covered or even exceeded by Saturday's business.

    Further, I would like to see this business develop a website. If he did, I'd be likely to patronize via the web.

    As it is, now, I use Freestyle, B&H and, occasionally, Adorama. While these are all good places to do business, I would certainly add Victory to my list if I could. Regardless, it's almost always better to have more choices of businesses to buy from.

    Fingers crossed! Let's hope that Victory means victory!

    It looks like he is selling online through amazon. See the store here if you want to buy from Victory Camera online. This is not a plug from me, I have never purchased anything from them/him, it's just an answer to Randy's post.

    If you are referring to Joshua Cohen's shop, there may be Sabbath reasons for being closed on Saturdays.

    You have Tom's Rhinoplasty, why not Victory Camera as well?

    Whoops! I don't know him well enough to presume whether or not he would be open on Saturday. I didn't think of that.

    Regardless, his prices on Amazon are competitive with the others and, in some cases, a bit better. I'll certainly put Victory on my list.

    Thanks for the messages

    Hi

    Thanks Paul for posting this and appreciate all of the positive comments. To the folks lamenting the limited hours, I understand the frustration but realize that we are just getting started with retail and I am still doing most of the sales myself. That said, if you want to come visit give me a call and I could stay late. In the future I plan to have more sales staff and more accommodating hours.

    BTW: we are getting our sign installed tomorrow so we will be much easier to find,

    Joshua Cohen
