Archiver’s The Photo Memory Store is shutting their doors, unable to adapt changes that have taken place within the imaging industry. Poor business decisions also played a part, as the company hired executives not familiar with the industry and failed to effectively manage inventory.
I will miss Archiver’s for a different reason. I haven’t been there recently, but when I was at Creative Memories, I could always count on Archiver’s to have a variety of competitive products that we would use for testing. I could also count on Archiver’s to have misleading claims on some of their products, highlighting how meaningless terms like “acid-free” and “photo-safe” had become.
