Sears And Walmart Portrait Studio Closed!

PIQUA, OH (4/8/2013) — After years of providing family portraits and more, two local portrait studios are closing the doors – at the same time.

In case you haven’t heard the news, both portrait studios in both the Sears and Wal-mart in Piqua have suddenly decided to close their doors. Thankfully, Portrait Creations has already made contact with both businesses in an effort take over any existing appointments or club memberships.

The website for the Sears Portrait Studio offered the following statement on their website:

Sears and Walmart Studio Closed

“After many years of providing family portrait photography, we are sad to announce our Sears Portrait Studios are now closed. We appreciate your patronage and allowing us to capture your precious memories. If you currently have an album or have had a recent portrait session, you can order products at searsphotos.com thru April 18, 2013.”

If you have had a recent session, your portraits may be available at your local studio.

While Sears provided their customers with a statement, Wal-Mart has seemingly taken a different approach, simply turning off the The PictureMe Portrait studio. It’s remained turned off since April 4th.

The entire team at Portrait Creations in Piqua was saddened to hear of the studios closing making a number of local photographers jobless. Additionally, a number of individuals who had photo appointments planned at the Sears portrait studio now will have to locate another studio to get them.

With that said, Portrait Creations will be taking over both current customers and finishing out any Club Memberships purchased through Sears or Wal-Mart, as discussed with Sears and Wal-Mart management. This includes the Piqua Sears, Piqua Wal-Mart, Troy Wal-Mart, Sidney Wal-Mart.

To schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions of how we can better assist your family portrait needs, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 937-615-9140.
