    7-dayshop (UK) have stopped selling Ilford films.

    7-day-shop (one of the main UK mail order companies) say on their website that they have stopped selling Ilford films, and advise customers to change to Kodak.

    Time to take our business to one of the other dealers who do support analog, and who recognises that serious photographers have preferences and prefer to make their own choices.

    It isn't good news, there is a thread on this from a couple of months back and I believe someone from 7dayshop commented on the situation in there.

    Sorry, I completely missed that thread....I'd only just picked up on the discontinuance while wanting to order another (quite expensive) item from 7dayshop (which also shows as "out-of-stock". And they haven't bothered to reply to my email three days ago, enquiring if they will be restocking it. )

    Guess it's no great loss while we have the other, more compehensive, analog dealers.

    7dayshop are still supporting analogue but just not selling Ilford products. So it is still selling Fuji and Kodak films.

    Fair enough, but not much of a choice of films for serious photographers. And if you want sheet film, paper or chemicals, forget it. Not sure that this is really "supporting analog"?.

    Even though they have the advantage of being in the Channel Islands and not having to charge 20% VAT, their prices these days are often much the same as mainland suppliers. They talk about Kodak prices being more competitive than Ilford's, which is surprising, as with black & white film I've always found Kodak dearer than Ilford. Fortunately there are lots of alternative sources for film of all brands.

    We have to know about the big bust-up between Ilford and 7dayshop which is referred to here on this thread to understand why it now promotes Kodak film. It always stocked a very small range of analogue products anyway and was never going to compete or try to on the full range of analogue materials.

    Mail order companies in the Channel Islands have a very unfair advantage because they don't pay or charge VAT, it's UK suppliers who complain not customers and as a consequence many UK manufacturers now raise their prices when selling to them to level the playing field/market.

    this thread was started 2½ years ago. however 7dayshop started selling Ilford again a while ago. they were rather inexpensive for a while, but other suppliers are cheaper now
