Telus to Close Unprofitable Blacks Photography Stores

Updated on

Telus Corp., Canada’s second-biggest wireless carrier, is closing its chain of Blacks Photo Corp. retail photography stores, saying it wasn’t able to make a profit.

“Technological innovations have changed the way Canadians take and share photographs, with fewer of us using retail photo outlets,” the Vancouver-based company said in an e-mailed statement. All 59 of the chain’s stores will close, affecting 485 employees, who will have the option of moving to another part of Telus’s business, the company said.
