I would say the last local Inland Empire store that closed was the Arlington Phototorium as I recall the name. It had a few names over the years including a Wolf and or Ritz too. Not sure the ending name but was only a year back now when I read about it going out of business altogether.
Yep, that was a great place in its prime. It was at the end a Ritz. I was there last a few years ago after Ritz went bankrupt and they were one of the remaining ones that hadn't closed. The guys there were surprisingly cool about me being a film user- no negativity at all.
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
