Ritz Camera (big US camera retail chain) is finally dead:
I will not miss them at all. Terrible stores, terrible selection,
poorly-trained staff, etc.
Hopefully local mom-&-pop camera shops will be able to return one day,
when the economy improves, now that this behemoth is out of the way.
If you're a deal hunter, people on Reddit.com are saying Ritz and Wolf
stores are already liquidating everything (except their lab
equipment). I don't recall ever seeing much Pentax stuff there, but
you might find deals on accessories.
