C&H Photo fits neatly into its new storefront on Girard Ave. While the store is narrow and long, it is packed full of professional cameras and technical gadgets. The friendly owner, Leon Chow, walked me through his shop this week to discuss many of the exciting features about his business.
Although his shop is a typical camera store, his expertise has become a dying breed. Leon has observed that in this present, rocky economy, people have been more careful about how they spend their money. When people are careful, they are much more likely to seek the professional advice at a specialty camera store than trust Best Buy or online reviews.
“People are starting to remember our purpose on this planet” Leon said, half-jokingly.
