    Kodak Online Store Sale - TRI-X Out of stock?

    Amusing holiday story.

    20% off everything in Kodak's online store today, so I attempted to buy 40 rolls of TX 400 in 120, was around $3.30 a roll with free shipping. Pretty good deal, beats B&H.

    However, Kodak was unable to take the order as "the warehouse only has 2 rolls of Tri-X 120 in stock."

    That's a lump of coal in my stocking. Thanks Santa.

    Maybe they should contact the manufacturer regarding the need for increased production??

    So, I assume that shop isn't run by Kodak themselves but is kind of sub-shop at another company, at another premises.

    store.kodak.com does seem to have a wildly different IP address then www.kodak.com. Not sure if that proves anything but it makes the case it could be run by a third-party.

    It definitely is. Digital River specializes in creating these sorts of e-commerce sites for corporate clients. If you go to their web site, it promotes the fact that Kodak is a client. They probably fulfill the orders from a distributor's warehouse. If that distributor happens to be out of stock on an item, then you gotta wait.

    "That's so Kodak."
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I feel your pain, but I still like to hear the term "out of stock" over "discontinued"

    Perhaps it more often leads to an increase in production.
