Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
In Maryland, It's either Penn or Ritz. Now WHAT!!!!
Yeah... it's a shame! The Ritz where I used to go already closed (YEARS! ago).

Guess B&H will be getting more business from me.

BTW- there's a message on their site: Penn Camera
We're down to one real storefront in Tampa. I mostly shop BHPhoto but I go in there sometimes with a little business just to support it.
Now WHAT!!!!

Now shop on the web like everyone else... Customer service from hell for prices that are barely any better.

Although I never spent much time there (my two favorite shops were in VA) Penn was a big part of the DC photo world and so, yes, it is sad.

But then again, what is the loss of Penn compared to the loss of Kodak?

I live in the DC burbs and work in DC. Not far from a Penn Camera. Do they have any GooBiz deals?
I used to love Ritz a few years ago. Like any other business these days the online world has taken over. A shame indeed but a necessity I know
I am guilty of giving 10's of thousands of dollars to B&H and Adorama over the years, but we as customers have to do whats best for us.
The big Ritz in Laurel/Beltsville is now more of a super dooper photo lab than it is a camera headquarters.
