    Calumet photo vanishes in the US

    via the Phoblographer: All their US stores are closed and, judging from the Facebook posts, employees had no idea they were out of a job today. Their website has also gone down.

    Holy shit! I hope this is some kind of weird hoax- I was just in there a couple days ago and everything seemed fine!

    They had a booth at the vendor expo for the national conference of Society for Photographic Education this past weekend. No indication there either.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Kaput

    I looked 'em up on Facebook and their site says after 75 years their stores in the US are closed but the ones in Europe will continue. Somebody wrote in and said his wife was told to not come to work toay but was not told she no longer had a job. Funny way to run railroad, as they say.

    Indeed! Calumet is one that carries a lot of film stuff.

    The news has already been recorded here in the last paragraph under "History".

    Wow...I was planning on going there on my days off, as they are (or I guess were) based in Chicago.

    While I suspect that the rumors are true, their phone did answer with the usual recording but it says to leave a call back number and attempts to access their website comes up with "server not found". Too bad at least for now.
