B&H no longer shipping D-76 possibly more

I went to purchase d-76 yesterday after it had been discontinued and replaced by the 2019 formula and it states pick up in store only. So I inquired about this and was told they are no longer shipping darkroom chemicals due to NYC regulations. I wrote back asking if it was just certain chemicals or all and have yet to hear back. Talk about a bummer!

Anyone have a suggestion for the next best place? Iíve only ever purchased from them.

I just got a jug of DD-X on Friday via Fed-Ex from B&H. They had a stretch several years back where chemistry wasn’t being shipped, something about some tunnel.

I used Freestlye during that last no ship mess, and order direct from Moersch (which is cheaper than B&H or Freestyle right now - even with shipping).

Browsing the B&H website just now, I see most darkroom chemicals are still shipping. Evidently there's something about the new D-76 in particular.

FWIW, they're still shipping ID-11, which is Ilford's counterpart to D-76.

What do NYC regulations have to do with it? Their warehouse is in NJ.

My choice too. Freestyle ships via Ground, which judging by the tracking information means it moves via rail.

At the time of the big kerfuffle over shipping darkroom chemicals, their big warehouse was still in New York. They moved it to NJ only recently.

It's the new shipping restrictions on the HQ in the listed Kodak D-76 formula. A stupid over use for skin lightening by shady cosmetic creams has led to this; one of Kodak's best and best known products being unable to ship through the largest single photographic retailer on the planet.

Some of you might be too young to remember what a cultural, economic and photographic force Big Yellow Father Kodak used to be. It seems that "Kodak" Alaris has forgotten as well..

Probably truck, unless you order a boxcar load.
