    Oh dear. I wonder what that means for those of us who buy raw chemistry?

    I'm guessing it wont be long until North Melbourne closes. They've already removed it from their website.

    Look on the bright side. Maybe now it might be organised...

    I wonder how they'll go, long term? When I studied photography eons ago at RMIT, every student bought their supplies there because it was within easy walking distance, and I'm sure they still picked up a lot of that trade, even though current RMIT students tend to organise bulk B&H purchases instead because it's soooo much cheaper, and of course it's mostly digital stuff, because there isn't a single darkroom at RMIT anymore :-( (I was helping a student in a computer lab a few months ago, when I looked around at the suspiciously black walls, and a couple of remaining amber safety lights, and realised to my dismay that the room had once been a very large darkroom indeed - instead it was now full of Mac towers and cinema displays).

    I was in the North Melbourne store today and asked how long they would be there and they said that they haven't really been kept in the loop but that it probably wouldn't be there for much longer. The receipts show the new Fitzroy address but also the North Melbourne one.

    Marc, they had a shipload of Atomal at North Melb. There were about seven bottles sitting in the middle of the floor, but underneath those there were 12 boxes of 8 bottles each.

    Marc, if she hasn't already bought one, buy her a 'blad, and then you can buy all 12 boxes of 8.

    I thought you had a massive stock of original Rodinal?

    Still looking for the perfect 'blad, Kevin, but that is a good point: "...but I need all this developer for YOUR great negs!", etc...

    I've been going through my Rodinal at a rate of knots - partly because I use quite a low 1:25 dilution compared to most people (it seems), and partly because I've been shooting an awful lot of film this year, which isn't such a bad thing (ie if Kodak goes bankrupt, it can't be my fault, as the part of the fridge I've taken over is still full of yellow boxes and packets).

    Woah!

    Should have looked here earlier.

    So, yes, we are in business at 450 Gore ST.

    Yes, North Melbourne is closing to doors to the public in the next little while (weeks).

    No, we haven't reduced our range of analogue photographic items. Not one, unless a distributor has discontinued it.

    No, we haven't got more bags than we used to! They are just all over the place! (look out for bag sale..)

    RAW chemistry is also here to stay I assure you, we have been receiving supply deliveries at our new location.

    We currently have 137 bottles of Adonal in stock, nationwide.

    Customers are welcome to park in the 4/5 car parks with the big "AUTHORIZED PARKING ONLY" signs on them. We have had to do this due to local construction workers using all of them!

    The store is not currently 100% finished. We were forced to move in a very short time frame and as such things are still, frankly, a bit of a mess.

    We are processing E-6 (135-4x5), C-41 (120-135) and B+W (120-135) in our lab, which is on-site and has been freshly serviced

    Any other questions are best directed to lachiec@vanbar.com.au for prompt reply.

    Thanks for the info, Lachie. By the way, Maria will miss your regular lunch order.

    I should correct my comment about the old FX39. It has an expiry date of July 2006, not 2005. I am still amazed they are selling stock that old though. However the newer FX39 I have been using has an expiry date of December 2009 and it has been working fine. They should be automatically applying a discount though - I don't see why the customer should have to request it.
