    Why the big surprise? Their merchandise was the same as Best Buy's - Target - Walmart - etc.
    They used to be a photography store.

    The bad news is that there's not a single word on his website about film. Not a single word.
    ProPhoto's website still says they're moving, when in fact they moved about nine months ago. I've dropped into the new place several times -- once to drop of a Nikon F for a CLA -- and it is very, very much smaller than his old place. He still has some used gear, still sells Leica, and apparently still repairs equipment though Dick and brother (whom I haven't seen for a while) work out of sight of the public now. I mentioned to Dick that he had a lot less stuff on the sales floor (no paper or developers, etc.) and his reply rather indicated that they'd gotten rid of most of it (though some may be "in the back").

    I'm glad they're still there, as I've been shopping there for over twenty years, but the store clearly reflects how photography equipment is presently valued and sold.

    That's really very interesting. Thanks for the link...

    I'm still wondering what happened to all the poor guys who had cameras sent in for CLA or repair, did they ever get them back?
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Prof_Pixel, that is great to hear. It would be interesting though to see what C&A would do to the brand itself, I would be curious to see how they would use it to their advantage. I think this is a good move for C&A though.
