    I don't love Wal-mart. It's just simply stupid to target Wal-mart as some evil 'predator'.
    Here's something most people learned early on in life:
    The nature of capitalism is predatory. So unless you grow your own food, make your own emulsions, coat your own film, etc, etc... your argument doesn't stand for much.

    If you only knew. :rolleyes:

    The worst part of all of this is that it reinforces the idea that film is dead among consumers. How can someone buy something they don't know about?

    Its not just Walmart, but many larger big businesses will get free land, free financing, no interest, no-payments for 10 years, maybe no taxes as well.

    Any wonder why small existing business close up?

    My lab I work at still does film, but I expect the lab to close first before we stop doing film. I give it 2 years at worst and 5 years at best.

    Every Full Size walgreens has a one hour photo in it, with the exception of one roll, everything I have dropped off has come back looking great.
