    Oh yes we can! (say Walmart SUCKS!)

    Walmart sucks most especially because they exploit children around the world to make cheap products that effectively put Americans out of work. Walmart is owned and operated by pigs of the most disgusting variety. Do your karma a favor and shop elsewhere.

    You really need to stop holding back and start telling people what you think! Don't be shy!

    It would have to be a pretty frosty day in hell before I step into a Wal Mart.

    They stopped all but the send out service to Fuji in South Carolina. The little bit of e-6 that I shoot goes to Fuji, but only because its cheaper and I cant get e-6 local any more.

    I live in the Bentonville-Rogers, AR area, and you're not wrong. They took the photo-lab from the one across from the home office last year.

    Why must every thread about Walmart turn into a political, moral, economic, etc. discussion? The question was whether it seemed like Walmart was phasing out photo labs. I have a feeling the OP doesn't care about how "evil" they are or how others don't like it. If you want to rant on about Walmart and how bad or good it is, The Lounge is open for business. Otherwise, keep your opinions about their business practices to yourself and stick to the facts regarding availability and quality of service.

    Wally's will make a business decision - it's a strict cost-benefit analysis. If they aren't making money doing film, they'll stop doing film. I'm not that bothered by any move they make in this regard, since 1) I don't take my film there anymore and haven't in a very long time, and 2) it enhances the "mystique" of film processing and printing as a professional product, and a craft instead of just a mechanistic process.

    Here in Richmond Va. they have been phased out. I still use Costco or Target or the local camera shop for C-41.

    If they are phasing it out it's no big loss in my opinion. The quality was always terrible, bad csutomer service, and quite frankly the prices weren't that great either.

    There are tons of good quality labs that you can send your film to if you don't want to do it at home or there isn't a local alternative. The turn around time is quick and the prices can be more than reasonable.
