Seen the discussion on Kodak's actual production at least here in Europe and the latest press releases indicating Kodak stock being substituted by another manufacturer, I would not blame any dealer to come to such conclusion.Quote:

Here is the latest "statement" by Kodak about their production (jan. 8th):
We would not have to guess or speculate if somebody from Kodak was willing to communicate at least 10% the way the Ilford does. How difficult or costly would be to have somebody from Kodak monitor forum like ours not even daily but 3 times per week and address all concerns? You can even create alerts using search engines which will notify you if your company name will be mentioned in certain context and react. It's just how they were and are doing business for many years. It is sad...
Kodak hired people to post on social media. But as Apug is not considered to be a social medium...
good point, yes they did :)

Kodachrome is part of the problem. When Kodak announced they would stop making Kodachrome, it's amazing how many people inferred from that that Kodak was out of the film business entirely. I think there's still some ripple effect at work among the uninformed.
ETA: Granted, the shop employee in question should not be among the uninformed, but that's another matter.
