Calumet Photographic abruptly shuts down, files Chapter 7

Calumet Photographic’s tag line reads “Where the pros go,” and now it seems that only the photography pros in Europe will still continue to be able to visit their stores. In a rather shocking move, Calumet Photographic has shut down all of its American stores and has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. What’s even more shocking is that as of right now, there is no official statement from the company but rather a short statement on their Facebook page. By reading some of the comments on the Facebook post, it also seems like some of their employees had no word of the impending shutdown and now remain jobless.
