    Just checked my local pharmacy and they still have HP5, XP2 & BW400CN on buy one get a second (cheaper) half price so I bought 2xHP5. They had lots of C41 colour as well.

    Jeebus - I'm so jealous of you all. My local pharmacy offers a stunning selection of disposable cameras and memory cards in their still-demarcated "Film" area. And the photo dude said that they couldn't develop my ilford xp2, because it was black and white. Even though I explained that it was C41. So...yeah.

    But on the plus side, I am surrounded by lovely mountains.

    I'd take the lovely surroundings any day. I can order film easily off the Internet, and have it delivered to my door in two days for less money than most places sell locally. Heck, the two days is probably quicker than I could find time to run by and buy it locally. But you can't just order up some lovely mountains via the Internet.

    Maybe I'm not old enough, but I do not remember any non-C-41 B&W film at pharmacies here in the U.S. I do remember a wide variety of color film before digital, but anything B&W (other than C-41 b&w) seemed only to be at camera shops.

    Nah, probably just not old enough. I used to buy Tri-X and Plus-X at department stored and pharmacies in the 70s.

    About ten years ago I remember seeing Tri-X at the local drugstore. There must have been three lonely packages that sat there forever and a day until they stopped selling film. I was shooting Agfa, so didn't purchase Tri-X.

    I was still seeing Tri-X in CVS near me in western PA a couple of years ago. I might even have bought a box or two just to let them know someone still used it. I don't shoot that much 35mm anymore and just buy it online when I buy my MF and LF stuff. I haven't lived near a "real" photo store since leaving MA in 2007, though. Back there and then, I could go into Newtonville Photo and get whatever I needed (any size + paper and chemistry).

    As I mentioned I still see Tri-X at CVS/Walgreen/Rite Aide, just gotta go to the ghetto and you'll find some

    And Ruby, did he finally get it? Were you able to at least convince him to take a roll to try? I would buy one just to make him do it

    In the 1970s and 1980s, I used to sell Tri-X and Plus-X at a department store.

    Along with Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Kodacolour, 3M slide film, Polaroid SX70 and other films, house brand films .....

    No Fuji though.
