    Shoot...
    I think it must be very emotional for the uncle to close the shop shutters for the last time....

    He has been opening the shop for quite some time already right??

    Doubt so. If they were, they would definitely tell us right? why wouldn't they tell the customers??? Really hope they will set up shop again in future.

    Nonsense. If they are really so, then they deserve to close. They were selling all the lateset digital cameras available. It is more due to competition & a limited market base that probably caused them to close the business.

    Unhappy Fotoguide

    I've been going down to Peninsula for the past few days and it's true they are closed. Yesterday, i saw Nelson and Co. wrapping up their rolls of films...hmmm...guess it's the end of a good shop.
    Maybe someone in CS would like to set up a camera shop at this premise?
    They are not opening up at another location as far as i got a signal frm one of Nelson's fren when they were busy packing up their stuffs.

    This shop is a favorite haunt for lau jiao. Feel so intimidating every time I go there with these people around. one time i ask for a reversal ring for my canon len for macro work, I got stares from them, still don't know why. And the failure to admit that the trend now is towards digital probably caused the closure.

    I thought we already have a store? It's called "Buy and Sell" isn't it? The "Consumers Corner" covers the e-quotes.

    Sorry to say this lah. Its really sad that Fotoguide has to close & I don't think we're being very sensitive to suggest what other shop should take over its space in the very same thread?
