it all goes to dwaynes as you said ...
Just as an update, I picked up some of my developed film at Walmart today. They recently bumped their prices a bit: I paid $5.61 for a roll of 120 and $7.91 for a 36 exp roll of 35mm.
Was this just develop only, or did you get prints?

Any comments on the quality? I suspect that since the C41 is probably run by Fuji in-house on Fuji equipment it ought to be pretty good.
These were transparencies. I've had C-41 processed before and it was dirt cheap (less than two bucks a roll for 120). I'm very satisfied with the quality but I've just had small (3x3) prints made.
Hey, that's good enough as a proofing mechanism.

when my local sam's went belly up, and i began to take things to walmart ..
the 2 week wait killedme ... and the price ended up being about 1$ less
than my locally owned mini lab ( add the 1/2 trip+ gas and it cost more! )
... so i now take my 35mm c41 to her ...
i wasn't saving anything by shipping it across state lines
and i realized there aren't more important things than keeping
my local person in business.
The last place that did 120 here closed some time ago.

I have avoided Walmart for years. But choices are getting slim.
I use a shop that's about 40 minutes away from me (and I take a toll road to get there). I can't remember the prices exactly, but I think I can get B&W 120 developed with a cd for 13 something. It's a little steep, but they do a good job, and they have a lot of knowledgeable people there (one guy talked to me as long as I could listen about alternative processes). As opposed to my Walgreens experience which involved me wanting to get a few frames printed. I told the girl which number, so she takes the negative out of the sleeve and puts her bare finger (no gloves) on the frame and says, "this one right?"

I have found not to ask the clerks anything about 120. Just fill out the send out envelope and mark it clearly "E-6 SEND OUT" or something like that in the special instructions. Then drop in the box and return in a week or two. I think you can even check a phone number on the ID number tag to track the progress of your order. Test it out with something not too critical to see how it works for you. I've never lost any rolls. Ended up at the wrong store one time and they apologized and got it corrected in a day or two at no charge. All the slides I have gotten back have been really clean and super cheap ranging from $0 to $4.88/roll. Seriously I would try to pay them and sometimes they just didn't know how to ring it up. I used to pay a lot more for a local camera shop and their work was iffy at best.
