Calumet Photo has closed its door after 75 years. No final sale, no real information, just a note on their Facebook page:

After 75 years of business it is with a heavy heart that we announce our immediate closing in the United States (our European stores will continue). It has been a joy to share our passion for photography with you all of these years. We’ll miss each other and we’ll miss all of our customers. Thank you for everything.



The website is down and it is probably only a matter of time till the Facebook page disappears.


More news to come…


Seems that Calumet has declared  bankruptcy. LLC has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the Northern District of Illinois United States Bankruptcy Court. The filing is dated 3/12/2014.
