    Default Fotoguide closing?

    Hi people
    went down to fotoguide today and the guy told me that they are winding down the shop liao. He never say the exact date but i guess it would be soon that there might be a closing down sale?
    Well i guess biz is really bad due to the SARS thingy... my dad's shop sales had dropped 50%... i guess its time to spend less on camera equipment liao

    What?? They are my favourite shop. They are honest and does not markup their stuff for walk-in customers (at least for me) not like some other shops.

    Oh man ... I will really dread the day they close.

    From what i heard, the boss of Fotoguide was one of the shareholders of CP, until they had a disagreement.

    He then apparently pulled out of the store, and set up Fotoguide.

    Another CP-worthy competitor lost...

    Except for their Sigma and Tamron lenses, I could never really quite figure out what fotoguide is trying to sell.

    They've got B&W stuffs too, like the harder to get Agfa range of Rodinal... I am gonna miss their friendly services if they go...

    I'm not sure as to whether this is true or not..
    But this was what I heard from my dad, in the olden days... (not sure how long ago.. maybe 10 - 15 years ago?)
