Another one bites the dust

For 27 years Reed's Camera in Walnut Creek catered to the photographic needs of their customers in Northern California. Last month, after months of financial difficulties, the store closed their doors for good.
An interesting article about the store and their struggles can be found here.

The challenges that Reed's Camera faced are by no means unique to them and are very real to any camera store these days. So if you do have the opportunity to support your local retailer please do. As much as I like the option that the internet provides - it would be very sad if that one day becomes the only option.

A seriously bad sign of the times. In the past month alone a few labs closed in the City. Brooks on Kearny after 30+ years of service is closing the end of this month. Sad times.
