The eight-store Penn Camera chain declared bankruptcy yesterday, per this news story:

I've shopped at Penn for many years, on and off as I've come and gone from the DC area, so will miss their presence if they can't reorganize. They, like nearly all other camera stores, were much more digital than film, but they did maintain some film stocks, paper and chemicals, along with an at-times robust used (film) camera section. When I called the store last evening to confirm, the fellow said that they'd be selling out some stock from the remaining stores while the employees wait to see what happens. Hate to see them go.
