ALL photo labs companywide will be closing down on Valentine’s Day 2021 due to a loss of demand for the in-store service. Several photo centers were phased out in 2020, and the decision to pull the plug on the rest comes in spite of the fact that people are taking more photos than ever.
Fortunately, the word is that the staff will be reassigned to other parts of the same store, so it doesn’t appear that anyone will be losing their jobs.
The Costco photo center was known for inexpensive prints but was also a great place to grab cheap ink refills, passport photos, holiday cards, and even repair old photos.
The good news is that it will still be possible to get these services (minus passport photos and photo repair) through Costco online at the same great prices. You just won’t have the convenience of getting them the moment you need them.
