    It would be convenient if my local CVS carried a Tri-X even at inflated prices. If I have to have one NOW, I have to have one. As new semester for schools starts up next week around here, hopefully the store will stock some.

    How do I explain B&W FILM to a teen age cashier though.... memory card for your dad's camera?

    I'll try to get the order number so you guys can give it to the store manager so they can order it

    My local CVS still has Tri-X for $5.99. It's the only store in the area that has it on the shelf, including the local photo lab, which refuses to carry it.

    The nearest Wal-Mart is also the only one that has a minilab, but that must be a coincidence...

    I think I'd have a hard time using a local photo lab that didn't at least stock Tri-X; that stuff, at least in 135, is a staple.

    As for Wally... you should double check that mini lab.

    A few weeks ago, they remodeled mine... gave the film counter a new alcove at the back of electronics, moved all their minilab equipment in there... set up fancy new pricing signs for their film services...

    And then turned the minilab off.

    They won't take anything; it's gotta be dropped off for Fuji (although most of the stuff I'm likely to give them would wind up at Dwayne's anyway.)

    The boxes say "Made in Japan", so I'm going to make a good guess that it's re branded FujiColor & Superia.

    UPDATE: I am going on vacation so I stopped by my CVS to pick up a few rolls of Tri-X. Good news is they still have it; bad news is it's $7.29 for 24 exposures. Wow! That's more than twice Freestyle's $3.49 price! No way I'm paying $7.29 per roll, even if ordering online costs more with shipping.

    $6.99 for 400TX in Grand Prairie, TX. I usually get my Tri-X developed at Wal*Mart, but I have NO idea where my film winds up when sent to Fuji (Dwayne's, maybe?)

    I can confirm that the CVS stores around Blacksburg, Virginia (Virginia Tech) also carry Tri-X. They also have some of that BW400CN stuff, but last time I was there somebody helpfully decided to shove it to the back of the shelf and hide it behind the Tri-X. Every time I go in, there's a different quantity on the shelf, which means that at least one other person buys it regularly. I agree that it's probably mostly high school students, particularly now that school is out and they can't get Plus-X from the photography teacher's bulk loader.
