Ritz Camera closes in Bethesda (Photos)
Ritz Camera has closed at 6917 Arlington Road in Bethesda. It's a big loss for those who haven't switched entirely to digital or cellphone photography. Ritz Camera traces its history back to Benjamin Ritz's portrait studio at the Ritz Hotel in Atlantic City, which opened in 1918.
The contents of the store have been cleared out. One great irony is that the last regular post on their Facebook page April 16 was advertising a GoPro digital camera. Hope you picked up your photos!
