Some time ago I wandered into the Ritz in the mall near here and asked about some black and white chemicals. The kid said "we don't carry any of that stuff but our Riverside store has lots of darkroom stuff".
Riverside is about 25 miles (or somewhere between half an hour or 45 minutes as we reckon distance here in Socal) so I jumped in the car and hurried on down. Found a few bags of chems and picked up some to purchase.
I asked the manager about neg pages and film clips. They were out and would'nt be getting more because "film is dead, you really should switch to digital"
Good riddance is all I can say.
