I'm happy for J&C and all that awaited this news but personally a bit sad that they won't remain "local" to me. That was going to be very cool for me...and the ability to pick up heavy items at a storefront was going to be a big cost savings.
a) According to forum poster "fotoimpex" (who, I think, we can trust to know about such things ) Fotimpex expects to continue their relationship with J&C Photo.
b) J&C continues to post updates on the Kodak TMY ULF orders.
So not a lot as far as what their retail catalog may look like come 9/1. Personally, I think we may be expecting too much if we think that all the previous products (possibly minus Forte) would be available immediately after they open. We will just have to see.
I think J&C has been pretty reasonable in posting status updates every 2-3 weeks.
Can you imagine the next generation of Las Vegas mishaps? "Dude, I was so f--- loaded in Vegas, that when I woke up I was married with a hooker, I had the ace of spades up my bum, a cowboy hat full of puke, and twenty boxes of 12x20 Adox 100 film, what the...?"
Using film since before it was hip.
