The rumors are true… Lomography Austin will close down after SXSW this year, with our last day of business falling on Saturday, March 30, 2013.
It’s been a good run Austin, and we’re sorry to go. Thank you all for making our community here so special, and we hope you will join us in having the raddest time possible this last month, as we already have a great schedule of events planned for SXSW!
This means a few things for you regular Lomographers out there: If you’ve been bringing your films into us to take advantage of our LomoLab, fear not! The folks at Holland Photo have been our partner lab since we opened and will happily continue serving your processing needs. Drop off your film at least one more time to the shop, an we’ll give you a 10% off coupon to use at Holland once we’re closed!
If you’ve already brought films into us then please make sure you collect them before our last day because we won’t be able to get them back to you otherwise. We’ve given everyone a heads up via phone calls, and maybe you’ve noticed the public shamings on Facebook… everything we can do to make sure no rolls are left behind!
If you received gift vouchers for Christmas you must use them by the time we close! Don’t forget there will be loads of amazing, one-time offers until we close as well, so if you’re looking for a bargain, now’s the time to make a trip to say goodbye! Follow us on Facebook for all the latest.
In true Lomographic form, we’re also making loose plans to hold a wake on Friday, March 29, complete with comforting foods, tons of booze, and a live band performance you can only have when you plan on peacing out the next day.
It’s been real Austin… we love you all, let’s make it count for something!
