Houston went digital big time and never looked back. While I'm sure if I looked under every rock and taco stand I might be able to locate a color lab. However, chances are they are miles & miles away, never open when I can get there, etc., etc. Assuming one even exisits. Heck, there are only 2 camera stores left. Half of them are film challenged.

I've used Walmart many times up until a couple of years ago. Nobody ever knew what was going on and prices were all over the place. I always got my negatives back, but at that time they were sending off to Dwaynes, but Fuji worked as a middleman.
