    walmart discontinuing kodak film

    I know I know, walmart.

    But here in Ft. Myers I think I'm gonna have to start ordering my film....ugh.

    and i know it aint obscure film people drool over, but with kodak leaving, maybe even fuji (i barely saw any left) and a photo showroom with nothing but memory cards, digi cams and lithium batteries. Makes me worried that soon the C-41 processing equipment may see the end of its days there. (probably once one breaks)

    case in point - a major retailer is no longer carrying a big name in film. eek.

    All of the WalMart stores I have been in through my travels in New England, not one of them for a while now has offered Kodak film or C-41 processing. I would imagine it's going to keep working its way to you.

    This is actually not that uncommon. I don't know of another major retailer that carries both brands of film in manufacturer packaging. EX:

    CVS: Kodak
    Target: Fuji

    Store brands don't count, as they are almost all Fuji by now.

    Great! Even more inspiration to support a professional photography shop! They need our business for film products in order to keep them on the shelves.

    I agree 2F/2F. I can't say I feel too bad about this as I've "discontinued" slavemart a very long time ago.

    It does stink not having a local option, but mail order is pretty convenient overall I feel.

    Where I live Wal-Mart still sells Kodak, as of yesterday. Target sells Fuji but not much. I usually been using 120 as of late, so this hasn't really hurt me too much.
