    Calumet

    I have been receiving emails (spam?) from Calumet about sales and selling and trade ins. Example: The Great Trade-In & Trade-Up Event!
    Be sure to add
    newsletter@calumetphoto.com
    to your address book or safe sender list so our emails get to your inbox.


    Are they back?

    Items for sale or trade at www.Camera35.com

    They are back in Chicago (based on their newsletter) and some other place(s) I can't remember at the moment.

    They were bought by the owner of Ritz Photo. I bought something in the Oak Brook store and I'm getting a lot of spam about Ritz's photo printing service.

    I thought Ritz went under... but we still have a Ritz store in my area. Is my memory failing or did I not fully understand the story?

    I started to get spammed daily by Ritzpix late last year and have had to set up an email filter just for their crap. Have never had any dealings with them and wish the the worst that the business world has to offer.

    Calumet has recently appeared with spam, so they too get the same treatment and wishes.

    there are 2 ritz photo ..
    one is based in arizona ( i think )
    and the other was the giant chain.

    the one in arizona is a great store.
    there used to be one of the chain stores ( with a boat world attached )
    near me, and it sold pro-stuff as well as consumer goods. i kind of miss it ( and calumet ) ...
