No more cheap Fujicolor 200 at Meijer?

ClearanceFilm.JPG

When Meijer (a big-box store chain in several Midwestern states) affixes this sticker to an item, it means they’re not going to carry it anymore.

On the one hand, yay! 12 rolls for the price of four! (I bought all they had left, plus four rolls of Superia X-tra 400 for the price of one.)

On the other, waaaaah! My cheap and easy source of film is no more!

    I’ve been through this with Walmart, same film, I just never found it at 75% off 😁 All of a sudden it disappeared. Hate to order film from Amazon instead of getting it locally, but a least they have it.

      I wonder if this is the beginning of the end for Fuji consumer films — or whether the big boxes have realized there’s little market for it. The stuff I bought today is all expired now, by a month or two.

    Also missing at the Walmarts in Albuquerque. Still available on line, but he price is going up.

      It’s too bad. The only remaining convenient choice to buy film is CVS and Walgreens, but their prices are high.

    That’s what refrigerators and freezers were made. for. Hope You Bought Lot’s. And Yes I think Fuji is wrapping up their film. Fewer films from them everyday. But hopefully Kodak E100G will pass muster and be available soon…….

      I bought all they had! Which was just four boxes.

    The last slide film I shot (and will probably ever shoot) was when Meijer closed out Ektachrome. Bought two rolls, the first came out with the colors a little off, and the other is still in the box somewhere.

    Haven’t shot much film recently, but if my store has that kind of price I will stick a few rolls in the freezer for someday.

    The Argus collector group is having their annual gathering in Ann Arbor next weekend, so I will pass the word along.

      I wonder if this is chainwide or just local.

        I hit a couple of stores and did not find any clearance sales. What we have is newer looking 3 packs with 2019 exp dates. 200 is $10 for 3 rolls and 400 is $13. Will be interesting to see if your stores get this once the old stock is gone.

          Perhaps Meijer was just clearing out expired stuff after all. Further bulletins as events warrant.

    I just bought three 4-packs at walmart, it was $3 for iso 200, and $3.50 for iso 400

      Per four-pack box, or per roll? If the former, then you got a great deal!

        Jim, it was per 4-pack. They only had two of the iso 400, and one iso 200.
        I bought all three.
