Company closes portrait studios at Sears, Walmart stores

Posted: Updated:

A financially troubled St. Louis-based company has abruptly closed more than 2,000 portrait studios found in locations such as Walmart and Sears stores.

CPI Corp. said in a statement on its website that it is sad to announce that all of its U.S. portrait studios are now closed. The company said it is attempting to fulfill as many customer orders as possible.

Sears Portrait Studios confirmed the closing in a statement on its website. It said customers who currently have an album or have had a recent portrait session, can order products at searsphotos.com thru April 18.

For Sears Portrait customers who had a recent session, portraits may be available at their local studio, the statement said.

CPI Corp. also ran PictureMe portrait studios in Walmart stores and Kiddie Kandids portrait studios in Babies R' Us stores.

PictureMe said on its website that customers who currently have an album or have had a recent portrait session can order products at myonlineportraits.com thru April 18. For those with a recent session, portraits may be available at their local studio, the company said.

CPI has struggled in recent years as the popularity of digital photography cut into its sales.
