    Sad to see another B&M store go.

    I guess a lot more are hoping they can hang in there till the new GST rules come into force.

    That is most sad as PC has been my favourite b&m photo shop since the late 70's.

    I just bought several 120mm rolls from them

    I thought I needed a hobby to cheer me up and feel better by doing something creative and hands on. So I decided to try medium format photography. I just bought several rolls of 120 film and a TLR camera.

    A nice shiny new Rolleiflex I hope.

    Looking forward to seeing some shots.

    After joining AP 6 years ago it has taken you 6 years to realise a photography hobby might cheer you up? Suppose we might get to see a photo from you around 2022 at this rate

    With the Aus $ coming down so much recently it may make some B&M stores becoming more competitive again.
    Of cause that doesn't help if you're not close to anyone that has a bit of competition to be competitive with. Though I can now look for Australian online stuff.

    So on AP you're just as relevant as Photo Continental are.
