Ritz Camera Closes Downsized Location on L Street

1742 L Street, NW

Almost a year ago we learned that Ritz Camera was downsizing from their corner location at 18th and L St, NW to a smaller space at 1742 L St, NW. I noticed a few weeks ago that the Ritz had closed the smaller location too.

    Not a big surprise to me. Camera shops are closing down as fast as bookstores.

    • Truly full service camera stores have held on mostly because Ritz gives them no competition. they should have crumped entirely with their bankruptcy.

  • Is there any place left that will develop B&W film on site in DC?

  • I hate to see another camera store close, but the reality is that this place just wasn’t great. I went in a couple of months ago to try and get a replacement battery for my point-and-shoot. They had one, but it was something like $35 (not even the official Canon brand), when the exact same thing could be had online for $9. The salesperson was not particularly friendly or helpful, either.
