    Jiffy Photo... It was in Fort Pierce on US 1... I've been in PSL since the late '70s, the only retail camera store that I'm aware of ever existing in PSL was a Ritz in the Treasure Coast Mall... that's been gone for ages... The next further south of me was a client in Stuart, Stuart Photo. They closed about 4 years ago because of declining business... They were in a high rent shopping center and Dennis, the owner, had health issues and didn't feel moving was worth the effort, so he closed...

    Mike's Camera in Boulder, and with several branches in Colorado and California, seem to be doing well. I admit that I haven't been to the store in quite a while, but their website shows most everything in stock.

    I must be thinking about some other location, because I believe my search was before the TCM opened in the mid-to-late 1980s. At the time, I had moved from Stuart to Jupiter.

    Allen's Camera is the closest to me - and in all honesty I haven't been in there since before the pandemic. So I have no idea what they might possibly have in stock. It's a family business but does a great job with internet sales, too.

    From my online observations, I'd like to have Allen's as my local shop!

    The Camera Company in Madison, WI is my local shop. They still have 3 stores across the city. I am concerned about that downtown location as is was very close to ground-zero of the summer "peaceful protests" with the associated looting and destruction of property. I know the windows are boarded like all of their neighbors. I have not been in for a visit since COVID restrictions in the spring. Bought my D750 there 18 months ago.

    Mine is doing pretty well. It is about 45 minutes from the house. They closed for a while but then went to curb service and then full open. I have been able to get my Z lenses there when B&H could not tell me anything. I have bought my 85 1.8 with a 2 week wait and my 14-30 f4 with no wait. they also had cameras and lenses in stock. They do have an online presence and two other stores in Louisville, Ky which helps.

    I now go to them first. If I can find a buyer for a slightly used kidney I will go there to get the 70-200 f2.8 Z mount S lens, but I am not holding my breath
