In addition to Hennings extensive description of the situation in Germany, I'd like to add that Fuji Eurocolor also accepts direct orders by mail, bypassing the drug chains. The price is higher, but special care is taken during the development and extra options are available. For instance, push and pull process is available for C-41 as well as E-6. When I once got a 35mm film back that had mechanical defect, they fixed it by hand and inserted a brief letter informing me about potential defects in my camera that might be the cause of the defect.
