In the past few days, Mr. Kim, the owner has been selling off his inventory, including all his machines, at 50% off.
In this digital age, it was just a matter of time before this closure, of course. There were once quite a few of these photo stores all along Court Street. Then chain drug stores like CVS and Rite Aid moved in and offered the same service, and the smaller photo shops began to close.
Mr. Kim has been part of the community for quite a number of years, and the closing of his store is a reminder that times are changing quickly in Carroll Gardens.
