Sears closes its portrait studios
CREATED Apr. 7, 2013
CNN- As camera phones and digital cameras thrive, another industry may be falling to the changing times. Portrait studios inside Sears have closed unexpectedly.
The operator, C-P-I Corp., has gone out of business after more than 60 years. The closures mean families can't go to Sears for family pictures, anymore. Portrait studios inside some Walmart stores have closed, as well.
C-P-I had warned that it wasn't able to pay its creditors and that bankruptcy liquidation might be possible.
