Ritz Camera Loses Their Touch

I’ve started evaluating getting a new pocket sized point and shoot for the occasions when I don’t feel liking toting the brick that is my DSLR.

I stopped into a local Ritz CameraRitz Camera Store store and scanned the counters for signs of cameras. Seeing nothing, I asked the clerk, “Do you – uh – sell cameras?” He indicated, yes and pointed to the cameras in display cabinets well behind the counter. He said, “We use to have them there (pointing to an accessible display where customers could have interacted with them) but we didn’t like people touching them.

Good going Ritz. You’ve eliminated your one advantage over online stores.
