Raleigh - Durham

I live in the Raleigh/Durham area of NC. We're forutunate enough to have a few Independent Camera Stores that sell everything from digital to Holga and everything in between.

Camera Works on Carver Street in Durham was mentioned in a previous post. I've done a lot of business with them over the past several years. As a matter of fact I just picked up a sweet Canonet QL 17 GIII from them when I dropped my Bessa R off for repair. It's a great little independent shop.

Peace Camera is in downtown Raleigh. Good shop as well.

Southeastern Camera has 2 locations that I know of in the Triangle - Cary and Raleigh, and also one location in Wilmington.

We have more than our share of Ritz Camera as well. One in every mall and strip plaza.

The local shops seem to be doing OK though. They do plenty of digital business and also sell, service and repair film cameras. They're also well stocked in the darkroom supply departments as well. I hope they can all hold on and stay in business - they are all great folks to deal with.
