Two camera shops are closing 08/11/07.
Rainier Photo in Burien, Wa. is calling it quits. Good staff and a good section of darkroom supplies as well as albums, cameras, ect.
The Camera Shop in downtown Tacoma is closing also. I believe it started in the 1930's and the orginal owner, Barney Elliott took the famous footage of the Tacoma Narrows bridge falling down in 1950. Barneys son Ed has owned the shop for the last years. I have fond memories as a college student learning the craft and business of photography from these and other shops.
Both will be missed!
